Route Support

Vehicle Support

SAG cars stationed along the Emerald City Ride route are volunteer coordinated and staffed. They are available to help with minor mechanicals or transport you to the next mechanic if your bike is beyond their ability of repair. They are also there to get you back to the finish line if you are unable to continue due to a non-serious injury or mechanical issue.  

In the case of an emergency or serious injury all support drivers will call 911, they do not transport riders to the hospital. 

Bike Support - Cascade Outriders

The Outriders will be in their white and green Cascade Outrider jerseys. They are experienced volunteers and have ridden many if not all of Cascade's events. They are available to help with minor mechanical issues, help you flag down a support vehicle, or answer questions about the route, event logistics, and riding in general.  They may remind you of Cascade event rules and safe riding practices. Please be respectful as they are there to keep our event safe.  Wave hello as you see them along the route!

  • Start line at University of Washington

First Aid Locations

A first aid station will be at the start line. Medical riders wearing red medical jerseys will be riding with you on the route.  All support vehicles will have basic first aid kits and will be able to support with minor injuries.
