Upon arrival at the start location, follow Gears & Beers signs for parking & registration.  Detailed Maps for parking, etc will be emailed 24 hours before the event.
Every rider will need to check-in at the registration table between the hours of 9am-11:30am

ALL RIDERS MUST FILL OUT AND SIGN A WAIVER. Waivers will be located near the registration area.

Please have your e-tickets pulled up on your Smartphone or bring a printed copy of your e-ticket.

At registration you will receive a wristband and QR code for the course map of Detroit’s most interesting neighborhoods, points of interest and notorious watering holes! Wristbands must be worn for the duration of the event to receive SAG support and entry to the after party. There is limited beer sampling along the way and offered at the discretion of the participating venues to promote their brews and specials for the day. The samples are NOT part of your ticket to Gears & Beers. Most bars will be sampling brews of their choice. There will be a greeter at each stop to answer questions and fill you in on details.

Visit the SWAG TABLE at the start/end location to get your Gears & Beers Gear!
