THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS FROM OUR 2018 EVENT, AND IS INTENDED TO BE INFORMATIONAL FOR FUTURE RIDERS.
PACKET PICK UP
Friday, July 13
4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Or, you can just pick it up on Saturday morning at the start.
YES, you can pick up packet(s) for others!
Please note, we are not hosting Friday packet pick up at Herman Miller this year, but we will be there bright and early (6:30 a.m.) on Saturday!
THE START AND FINISH
The Holland 100 starts from and finishes at the Greenhouse facility at Herman Miller, 10201 Adams St., Holland. Parking looks ample, but carpooling is strongly encouraged. Please follow the instructions of our volunteer parking crew when you arrive.
The course officially opens at 7:00 a.m. Saturday, July 14. Before that time, there will not be SAG support on the course, and you may approach rest stops earlier than we're ready for you.
We STRONGLY recommend that faster, more serious cyclists, start as close to 7:00 a.m. as possible.
The shower facilities inside the Herman Miller Greenhouse are available post-ride until 4:00 p.m.
The chart below outlines each route individually. Please note, there were no route changes between 2017 and 2018, so if you see a file with a different year on it--no worries. It's correct.
*Note: .gpx files are the most common GPS data format, and work with most GPS units. If you open the file on a computer or non-GPS device, it will appear as a bunch of code. Save the file, plug your GPS unit into your computer, and move the file to your device.
Not many bike tours can boast a full-on pancake breakfast during the ride. One of your rest stops includes pancakes and coffee to get that day off to a great start (thanks to Holland Christian Schools South Side Transportation and Simpatico Coffee).
The other rest areas have the perfect fuel to get you through the day, too. Sponsored by our friends at Hope College TRiO Upward Bound and supported by SpartanNash, you can expect meat & cheese roll-ups, PB&J, pretzels, fruit, granola and other ride day staples. Our volunteers will also hook you up with fresh water or energy drink if you wish.
The finish line will have great snacks and water provided by SpartanNash (AKA our friends at Family Fare and D&W stores!), Gelato from Palazzolo's, and mint iced tea from Simpatico Coffee. While supplies last!
The start/finish line and each rest stop will be staffed with experienced bike mechanics from local bike shops to help you solve any issues that may come up during the ride.
Additionally, SAG support will be on the course to help transport you and your disabled bike to the next rest stop for repair. Please note, SAG cannot transport tired riders--only those with legitimate mechanical issues.
A phone number for questions and non-emergency help (use 911 for that, y'all) is provided via email to all registered riders, and is printed on the maps and tip sheets.
