On Friday, June 16, riders may pick up their packets at the grounds of the bike ride, behind the Baileys Harbor Town Hall from 5 – 8 pm. Packets will include wristbands, detailed maps of the routes, with turn by turn directions, and other goodies.
On Ride Day, Saturday, June 17 packets may be picked up at the grounds of the bike ride, behind the Baileys Harbor Town Hall from 6:30 – 9:30 am. Packets will include wristbands, detailed maps of the routes, with turn by turn directions, and other goodies.
While all five courses have been designed to follow Door County’s less-travelled back roads, the routes will not be closed to traffic. All bikers should follow the rules of the road, including stopping at stop signs and riding single file on the right side of the road. It is recommended to wear a helmet when bicycling.
All routes for the Spring Classic follow regular state, county and local roadways and are used by automobiles, trucks, buses, bicycles, motorcycles and farm machinery; they have no special provisions for bicyclists. Bicyclists participating in the Spring Classic, using the map and the marked route, assume the responsibilities and risks for their own safety when cycling.
The bicycle is classified as a vehicle under Wisconsin state law (WI Statute 346.02 (4)) and has the same Rights AND RESPONSIBILITIES as motor vehicles, including the right to use public roads unless specifically prohibited. The safety of bicycling depends on the conscientious efforts of bicyclists and motorists to obey traffic laws and act with mutual consideration when sharing the roadway.
Plenty of parking will be available throughout downtown Baileys Harbor, as well as at the Fire Department lot (on Park Road).
