AIDS/LifeCycle 2014
Tent Assignment Instructions

The week of the Ride is fast approaching! As part of the adventure of riding your bike 545 miles, or working together to support our cyclists for seven days, you will be camping for six nights with over 3,000 Cyclists and Roadies.

Your tent will be provided by AIDS/LifeCycle. These tents are designed to accommodate two participants and their gear. They are the only tents that will be allowed on the Ride, so please do not bring your own tent. Two participants will be assigned to each tent. There are no geographic restrictions for tent assignment, and you may select any active participant as a tent mate, regardless whether they are a Cyclist or Roadie.

At Orientation Day check-in, each participant will receive an assigned tent “address” indicating your assigned space on the tent grid. This address also determines the specific Gear Truck that will be transporting your gear from camp to camp.

NOTE: Every participant MUST receive a tent assignment, regardless of whether you plan to tent in camp, so that a Gear Truck can be assigned to transport your gear.

  • Once your selected tent mate has met the requirement, they will be able to accept or decline your invitation in their Participant Center.
