STP Baggage service

 

Baggage Guidelines

  • Baggage transportation is included in your registration.  The baggage tags are part of your bib and are found in your rider packet.
  • Fill out and attach your official STP baggage tags to your bags before placing on trucks; bags will not be accepted without official luggage tags. No exceptions. If your accommodation provided you with tags, bags must be labeled with both.
  • Maximum of two bags (20 lbs each)
  • Know which truck serves your Saturday night accommodation; confirm when you book.
  • Cascade Bicycle Club is not responsible for any damaged, lost or stolen luggage
  • Waterproof bags are recommended, or pack your belongings in plastic bags for protection from possible rain. The Pacific Northwest always has a 30% chance of rain!
  • A bike box cannot be used as one of your two checked bags. For this service, we offer bike box transportation tickets. Click here to learn more

Mid-point Pickup/Drop-Off

Trucks are labeled by the drop location. Times and distances are approximate. Please know which drop location is closest to your mid-point housing and how to get there from the main STP route. 

If you do not see your accommodation listed below, please contact your accommodation directly. Cascade Bicycle Club does not arrange transport to any locations other than those listed below. Your community organization can give you more details on how your luggage will be picked up/dropped off from the midpoint locations.  

Be sure your bags meet you in Portland!

On Sunday luggage trucks (or luggage piles at some locations) begin accepting luggage at 6:00 a.m. Trucks are loaded, locked and leave promptly at their designated time. Have your bag on the truck a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the scheduled leave time.
