Route Options and Registration Information

These routes are marked by Randy Fry and Dane Seiler, with Springbike Club and Wayne Stokes with Bass Pro Shops.  Watch the road for tdb in yellow spray paint. Signage is located at areas where cyclists may need extra direction.  All signs are specified with the Tour logo or verbiage.


Route Maps

For 2022 there have been a couple of changes made to some of the routes.  In particular, the 100 mile route still has rolling hills, however the overall route has been flattened out.   We have a route for everyone - no matter your fitness level or cycling experience.  Aid stations are spread throughout the route with plenty of signage and cues in the app as you ride along the route.

 

 

Packet Pickup

Packet pickup will be held the morning of Tour De Bass at Mercy Orthopedic Hospital from 6:00 AM - 7:00 AM.  Packets are organized by distance.  Follow the signage to the distance you registered for and give the volunteer your name. 

Photo ID is required to get your packet.

Safety Information
  • Helmets must be worn by all riders at all times.  
  • Alcohol will not be allowed on any course. There will be beer, sponsored by Heart of America Beverage Company, at the finish line for all those who are 21 years of age.
  • Rides must be completed by twilight (around 5:00PM) to ensure rider safety.  A SAG driver will be available to transport riders to the rest stop nearest Tour de Bass finish so that riders may complete the ride. THIS IS FOR YOUR SAFETY.
  • 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.  
  • Mercy will be providing all of our medical care at the finish and along each route.  Our local Ham Operators will be providing communication and SAG for the day.
Training

Springbike Bike Club offers a great way to get to know other riders.  If you are new to the cycling community, checkout Springbike.org.

More training information is available at the Springbike Website. Springbike will post updates on their website pertaining to their training rides including dates, times and locations. Springbike will also have the GPS routes available for download on their homepage.   

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. 

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

Rider Essentials

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 by SAG drivers for riders who need to return to Mercy Orthopedic Hospital.

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.
