🐶 PET POLICY We love our dogs of Cascadia, but please note no dogs are allowed on course at any time, and all dogs must be on leash at the race venue. Please be a responsible pet owner and pick up after them - don't leave poop bags in the woods!
PLEASE BRING TO EVERY RACE
FOOD + WATER - Bring more than you think you'll need! Plan to carry at least 50 ounces of water on you at all times while riding, plus carb and protein rich snacks to have on hand throughout the day. The aid station on course is not intended to be your sole support, it's intended for water top-offs and food to supplement you. Proper preparation goes a long way in preventing emergencies on race day.
HELMETS / BODY PROTECTION Helmets must be worn at all times while on course, on both the transfers and race stages. If you're pedaling you must have your helmet securely fastened or risk disqualification. A full face helmet is highly suggested, but not mandatory. Additional body protection to consider are gloves, knee pads, eye protection, neck braces, chest protection, elbow guards, etc.
COURSE MAP Download the Trailforks App to your mobile device with updated regional maps including the event course links released on Wednesday evening of race week; if you do not have a mobile write down the course details with stage names and order to carry with you during the event, found in the race guide or on the information board in the main venue.
TRASH - Pack it in, pack it out. Please help us keep the forest clean while we're guests at the race venue.
TOOLS - Pack a small tool kit with puncture repair kit + multi tool for on the fly trailside repairs
AID - Consider a basic first aid kit with sunscreen, bug spray and bandaids to take care of the bites, burns, stings and things. A waterproof jacket, emergency blanket and whistle area all good ideas too!
