2018 Route Support
Vehicle Support – Ham Radio Operators
SAG cars are out on the Flying Wheels route and are volunteer coordinated and staffed. They are available to help with minor mechanics or transport you to the next mechanic if your bike is beyond their ability of repair. They are also there to get you to the Finish Line if you are unable to continue due to a non serious injury or mechanical issue.
In the case of an emergency or serious injury, all support drivers will call 911, they do not transport riders to the hospital. Support drivers are also not there as a taxi service for tired legs. There are many points at which riders can check in with themselves and their physical ability and decide whether they should continue or cut the ride short. Be ready for a difficult ride and to finish the route you choose to take.
Bike Support - Cascade Outriders
The Outriders will be in their white and green Cascade Outrider jerseys. They are experienced volunteers and have ridden many if not all of Cascade's events. They are available to help with minor mechanical issues, help you flag down a support vehicle, or answer questions about the route, event logistics and riding in general. They may remind you of Cascade event rules and safe riding practices, please be respectful, as they are there to keep our event safe. Wave hello as you see them along the route!
These are medical professionals volunteering to ride the route and be on hand for any roadside medical treatment needed both minor and major. You can recognize them by their red medical jerseys and/or their medical helmet covers. If you are in need of assistance, look for these riders passing by. Remember that in the case of a medical emergency your first call is to 911.
