GABA has reserved the Dorm at the SWRS. Some rooms have two beds, other rooms have three beds, we plan to place couples in the rooms with two beds, and others will room together with three beds.

If you are camping, there are 6 tent sites, one tent per site and two to a tent. GABA will transport your tent and gear along with your bag to the SWRS.

Bedding and towels are provided by the SWRS if you are staying in the Dorm. The Research Station does request that you strip down your bed in the morning before you leave. Place all linen in the pillow case and place on the bed.

We'll provide lunch on the lawn at the Research Station between 12:30 - 2:00. In the past, some elected to eat in Portal on their own.

We'll provide some snacks, sodas, and energy drinks for happy hour around 4:30. Those who wish may bring a small cooler with wine, beer or other beverages. It would be excellent if riders can consolidate items in coolers at the start, so thatwe don't have to haul 20 coolers in the van.

Dinner is prepared by the Research Station and will be served at 6:00 pm. Breakfast will be served at 7:30 am. You'll be able to make a bagged lunch after breakfast for the end of the ride on Sunday that will be carried in a cooler for you.
