Catch a Ride!
Due to limited parking, we strongly recommend that you carpool to the event. The Baker Bus will be available to shuttle bags to the top and then cyclist back down who don’t wish to ride. They will depart from Chair 9 promptly at 7:45 am for Artist Point, if you would like to transport a bag to the top with clothes, food, etc, please tag your bag with your 1) name and 2) contact info and it will be at the Finish Line for you. A second smaller shuttle will transport remaining bags at 8:30 am. The Baker Bus will also be offering a ride down for cyclist who don’t wish to bike down. The shuttle will depart Artist Point at approximately 10:30 am (or when full) and is limited to 20 passengers on a first come, first serve basis. The shuttle will be equipped with a trailer for bikes but please note that bikes transported down are at the rider’s own risk. A second shuttle will depart from Heather Meadows Cafe if needed at approximately 1:00 pm.
The best way to be guaranteed a quick ride down is to cycle or to have a support person who drives a vehicle equipped with a bike rack up to Artist Point prior to the 7:00 am road closure to await your arrival, the views and hikes are beautiful. A NW Forest Pass ($5) is required to park at Artist Point. Alternatively, riders who are carpooling can leave a car at Artist Point Saturday night so it is there for you post-ride. Don’t forget the key!
