Rider Essentials & Rest Stops
First Aid Stations provide free basic medical supplies for registered riders, but these are not staffed with skilled medical personnel. Basic supplies included at rest stops are bandages, gauze, adhesive tape, antiseptic, cold packs, gloves, sting and bite treatments, Tylenol and Advil, scissors and tweezers. Non-emergency transportation will be available at aid stations for riders who need to return to Bass Pro Shops Tour De Bass corporate headquaters as necessary.
Riders are encouraged to carry medical cards/health insurance information with them at all times in case of emergency. If a rider requires transportation to a local hospital, payment for such transportation and subsequent care is their financial responsibility.

Each ride will offer rest stops along the route, with longer routes offering more of the above listed rest stops. The rest stops offer hydration and snacks that are sponsored by Bass Pro Shops, Mercy and other wonderful local area businesses.
Helmets must be worn by all riders, at all times.
Alcohol will not be allowed on the course. There will be beer at the finish line for all those who are 21 years of age.
Rides must be completed by twilight to ensure rider safety. A SAG driver will be available to transport riders to the rest stop nearest Tour de Bass Base Camp so that riders may complete the ride.
Hydration is critical no matter the riding conditions. Appropriate beverages are available at each rest stop, but riders are encouraged to carry their own drinks as well.
All riders must sign their liability waiver or they will not be able to participate. Riders under the age of 18 must have their waiver signed by a parent or guardian in order to participate.
