Return bus service begins at 6 pm and the last bus departs at 9 pm sharp. All bikes are transported back to Traverse City in a safe and secure moving truck. Bikes will be monitored by volunteers until owner and bike are reunited. All participants will receive a numbered wrist band at check in that corresponds to the number assigned to their bike.
