Let's get you ready for the ride of your life! Here is the information you'll need to have an amazing Bike MS experience. We've provided information on packet pick up, what to wear and important phone numbers and information for you.
Mark your calendars for a Packet Pick Up!
Your Bike MS packet contains many important items including your bib number, event details and sponsor giveaways. You must have your minimum fundraising commitment of $250 turned in and a completed waiver on file in order to pick up your packet.
We are delighted to welcome Primal Wear as the official apparel of Bike MS and invite you to check out Sponsors & Offers to see their specials for Bike MS participants.
So what should you wear for Bike MS?
Parking is free and there is space for everyone. You may leave your car at the University of New England for the duration of the ride, just look for signs directing you to parking locations.
If you did not attend an early packet pickup, begin at the Big Tent. Drop off fundraising and pick up your Rider Packet. Included are your event credentials and other information. You will get your prize sheets at this time, which you take to the prize tables to collect your fundraising prizes.
Wristbands: A Bike MS wristband will be provided to you in your registration packet. This wristband allows you access to rest stops and food areas. Printed on the wristband is the Bike MS emergency contact telephone number (Net Control). Bib Numbers: Having your number clearly visible on the back of your jersey allows us to identify you during the Bike MS ride.
When you cross the finish line, all riders check in and pick up check-in packets and t-shirts. This lets us know that you have safely finished the ride. This packet includes your housing assignment, lobster bake or barbecue ticket, 2 complimentary drink tickets to Saturday night’s event and your 21+ wristband for alcohol service.
When you arrive at the finish there is an ongoing picnic of hamburgers, hot dogs, and more. Help yourself to some great food and cheer on returning cyclists! The beer and wine tent will open at 5:00 p.m. featuring cold Maine craft beer from Dirigo Brewing, Funky Bow Brewing Company, Gritty’s, Run of the Mill Brewing, Shipyard Brewing Co., and Tributary Brewing. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. for everyone under the main tent. This year’s theme is Superheroes! Your wristband is your meal ticket.
We ride rain or shine and there is no rain date. In the event of severe weather, the Ride Director may suspend or cancel the ride. Should the weather take a turn for the worse during the ride, SAG vehicles will transport you to designated shelter areas along the route. If the weather looks questionable, check the Great Maine Getaway Facebook page for an update on the event status.
If you are staying at the University of New England, pick up your room assignment either Friday night at Early Packet Pick-up or when you check-back in after your ride on Saturday. All rooms have a key and key card. You must return the key between noon - 4 p.m. on Sunday. There is a $50 fee for not returning a key and $25 fee for not returning a key card. If you are locked out you will need to call 468-4075 for someone to unlock your room. There are staff and UNE Ambassador’s present to answer any housing questions.
