Safe Travels

Parking

Parking is $5 per day. Please bring $5 cash, exact change is appreciated. This will keep lines short on race morning. Volunteers will receive free camping on their volunteer day if signed up to volunteer in advance.

Lewis Creek Park entrance will be closed to all vehicles from 8am to 1:30pm on Saturday and from 8am to 12:30 Sunday. This is for racer safety. If you would like to park at Lewis Creek, please be there before 8am and plan to stay until we re-open the park entrance. If you need to leave before 1:30pm, please plan to park at Sunnyside Park and ride the shuttle to and from the race.

Shuttle

A free shuttle will be provided for all racers, spectators and community members from Sunnyside Park to Lewis Creek Park. There is ample parking at Sunnyside Park for those who are arriving later after Lewis Creek parking has filled or the road closure has begun, so please feel free to park there and ride the shuttle to and from the race.

The shuttle is a Linn county bus. We will also be running a Uhaul box truck with a bike rack in it following the shuttle bus to transport bikes and other large gear to and from the race. It’s only 1 mile, so you could ride your bike to the race start 🙂
