Each day of riding will begin at the previous night's camping/staging area. Indoor and outdoor camping options are available free of charge.  We do not coordinate individual spaces for indoor camping, it is on a first come basis each day.  We will have a campsite each night of the tour with showers available and options for either indoor or outdoor camping. Rider's and their friends and families have the option to camp out independently in tents or RVs, or to participate in full service camping with Padre's Cycle Inn.


We welcome RVs on the route and we will also try to secure a place in Lafayette where you can shuttle to and from your RV each day.


If you have other lodging arrangements (whether staying at home, a B&B or in an RV) we expect you have your own transportation and will not need shuttle services. If you will need shuttle services we will announce parking arrangements so you can catch the shuttle from one of our desingated locations.
