Route Support.JPG

Cycle the WAVE prides itself for offering the highest level of support for our amazing riders. We hope you'll agree it’s one of the best supported rides you have ever ridden. A past rider once called us "The Cadillac of all cycling events”.

We ask riders to Ride S.M.A.R.T. and please read our group Safety TipsSingle file is safer! No headphones permitted.

Start Line
Riders should arrive with water bottles full and bikes in good working order. Just in case, we’ve got you covered with onsite mechanical services by Woodinville Bicycle and Trek Bicycle Store Southcenter.

Ham Radio Operators
SAG cars support all routes and are volunteer coordinated and staffed by our "Command Central" located the Start/Finish line. They are available to help with minor mechanical issues or transport you to an official mechanic for more serious problems. They are also available to get you to the finish line if you are unable to continue due to a non-serious injury or mechanical issue.
