Highway 542 will be closed to traffic both ways from 7:00 AM-12:00 PM. You are more than welcome to ride your bike down the mountain after the climb but please be aware that the Race consists solely of the ascent eastbound along Highway 542 from Glacier to Artist Point; any travel westbound on Highway 542 will be at your own accord and at your own risk. If you depart after 12:00 PM, there will be traffic in the highway. Prior to noon, our shuttles will be traveling down the highway transporting cyclists who do not wish to bike down. The Baker Bus will have a shuttle for passengers and a trailer for transporting bikes back down to Glacier but please be advised that they are not able to assume any responsibility for damage that may be done to bicycles during the descent.
