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 Base Camp as necessary.

Weather & Gear Check

Missouri weather is unpredictable. The average high in the beginning of October is 71 degrees while the average low is 46 degrees. To accomodate our riders, we provide a valet service at stops 1-5. Riders may leave their gear with our valet and pick it up at Tour de Bass Base Camp upon completion of their ride. This gear check is available as a courtesy to all riders, provided by Bass Pro Shops and Mercy.  

In the event of a weather emergency, all riders should take cover immediately.  Aid stations will serve as communication points for riders and SAG drivers will aid riders if any severe weather arises.
