What is the most convenient hotel option?

The most convenient hotel option is staying in the same hotel room every night in Lafayette (Garden Plaza Inn or Holiday Inn North).  This will eliminate the time and efforts of checking in/out, packing/unpacking each day.

The shuttles times of the Lafayette hotels will be 5 to 20 minutes longer than the local hotels

We recommend bringing a day bag each day so that you have a towel, shower essentials, change of clothes and shoes so you can shower and change as soon as you get off the bike.  We will have shower truck at the end of the ride each day.  You could also shuttle back to your hotel to shower and change then shuttle back out to the post ride party.
