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 “[email protected]” in the Rider Details section. When the team captain is ready to finalize the roster, log into the Epic Rides account and select Edit Your 24 HOP Team.
Please see Team Modifications & Rider Swaps for details.

Team captains are required to attend however Epic Rides also encourages ALL team members to attend as we will be discussing important details associated with each participant having the best time possible!

Bike Travel with BikeFlights.com
Epic Rides recommends shipping your bike with BikeFlights.com for an affordable, reliable, and convenient solution.
Camping is available on a first-come-first-served basis. Arrive at the event by Thursday for odds on a choice campsite.
Attempting to reserve space whilst not present is frowned upon. Making room for neighbors as 24 Hours Town fills in is appreciated and celebrated.
Bring plenty of firewood to burn in a Chiminea.
Pro tip: we highly suggest using a propane fire pit to reduce campfire smoke in 24 Hour Town, plus no hot coals to dispose of when the event has ended.
Visit our accommodations page for more camping information.
Remember, you’re going to a mountain bike race in the desert — you’ll need water.
The water provided by Epic Rides is only intended to supplement hydration for participants. It is not intended for cleaning bikes. If you desire a clean bike for each lap of the event please bring sufficient water for you to feed your inner cleanliness-desires.
A coffee vendor will be there to keep you warm with their hot cocoa at night, and keep you cool with iced coffee during the day. Blue Banjo BBQ & their infamous ‘Street Tacos’ are always a favorite in 24 Hour Town. All food pricing is reasonable. See event schedule for operating hours.
Clothing For All Conditions
Good conditions – daytime highs: 76 degrees / Night time lows: 43 degrees. Bring sunscreen.

Lights & Chargers
Epic Rides provides a neutral charging station located immediately next to our friends at Outbound Lighting in the Bike & Gear Expo. Please remember to pick up your battery before noon on Sunday.
Don’t forget to mark both your batteries, charger, and GPS/bike computers with your name and phone number so they can be returned if accidentally left behind or dropped on the course. All items left behind will be donated.
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
Official Bike Shop, Bicycle Ranch Tucson, and industry vendors will be on-site to assist with all bike needs.
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!
