PLEASE NOTE: HOURS HAVE CHANGED THIS YEAR.
Orientation Day will open at 10 AM and close at 4 PM. Please arrive no later than 12 PM. Plan to spend up to 3 hours completing your Orientation Day process. Lines are shorter in the afternoon.
Both Cyclists and Roadies will need to bring your E-Ticket (available in your Participant Center) and valid identification (driver's license or other photo identification) for Orientation Day.
AIDS/LifeCycle would like to thank Sports Basement for providing Shuttle Bus service from their store to Orientation Day. The Sports Basement Shuttle Buses will run every hour from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM on Orientation Day.
Cyclists: park your bike FIRST before completing any of the following steps (unless you've shipped your bike to Orientation Day via one of our shipping services).
The following steps must be completed before proceeding to Check-In. Some of these steps may be completed online in the Participant Center before Orientation Day. Your E-Ticket, which is continuously updated, will show which of the steps you've already completed, and which steps you'll need to complete on Orientation Day. Please print your E-Ticket and bring it with you on Orientation Day. We recommend printing it as close to Orientation Day as possible so that your E-Ticket reflects the most up-to-date information.
