Registering an Incomplete Team
If the team roster is not quite complete, the captain can still register the team by placing “Rider, Two, Rider three, etc.” for names and use the captain’s DOB and use the e-mail address “firstname.lastname@example.org” in the Rider Details section. When the team captain is ready to finalize the roster, log into the Epic Rides Shop account and select your #24HOP Order. Instructions and access to modifications will be available after October 8th.

Lights & Chargers
The light brand stations usually pack up quickly after the sun comes up, so it’s best to pick up your battery before the event ends or you may have a problem getting your batteries back. Epic Rides also provides a neutral charging station inside the exchange tent.
Don’t forget to mark both your batteries, charger, and GPS/bike computers with your name and phone number.
Pre-Riding The Course
A pre-ride is the best ways to assure a safe good time at the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo.
All people pre-riding the course are required to have an Arizona State Land Department recreational use permit (Individual: $15/ year, Family: $20/year) and can be facilitated online.
Note, AZSLD recreational use permits are not required during event weekend because all event attendees are considered part of the event and fall under the events Special Land Use Permit.
Bike Parts & Accessories
Various shops and industry vendors will be on-site to assist with all bike needs.
Epic Rides has co-ed showers to clean up in. Bring a towel. Showers open Saturday, noon.
Can I Bring My Dog?
We at Epic Rides love dogs! Of course you can bring your dog.
HOWEVER, we also realize not all dogs are alike. All dogs MUST be leashed at all times.
A dog found off leash will result in the disqualification of the owner’s team (or team they are associated with) and the request that your party leave town immediately. Sorry to be direct however past experiences have determined this is the best way to approach the K-9 situation. Thank you!
