Baggage Guidelines

  • Fill out and attach your official STP luggage tags to your bags before placing on trucks; bags will not be accepted without official luggage tags.  No exceptions.  If your accommodation provided you with tags, bags must be labeled with both.  
  • Maximum of two bags (20 lbs each)
  • Know which truck serves your Saturday night accommodation; confirm when you book.
  • Cascade Bicycle Club is not responsible for any damaged, lost or stolen luggage
  • Waterproof bags are recommended, or pack your belongings in plastic bags for protection from possible rain.  The PNW always has a 30% chance of rain!
