I am no longer able to attend the bike tour, how do I drop from the ride?
If for some reason, you need to drop from the Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour, you must submit a Dropped Rider Form. Please click here to submit the form online. Riders will not be dropped from the bike tour until a Dropped Rider Form is received by our offices. If you are unable to access the Dropped Rider Form by clicking the above link, please contact LLS at 888-557-7177 or email@example.com. Riders who do not fill out the official drop form will be responsible for meeting their minimum fundraising requirement. All riders who submit a Dropped Rider Form will receive confirmation from our office. Forms must be received by July 1st, 2023. The only exception to this deadline is if a rider needs to drop for a medical reason and can provide a doctor’s certification.
If I need to drop from the ride, can I transfer my registration to someone else?
Yes, you may transfer your registration to someone else. Space is available on the Dropped Rider Form to include information on the person that will be replacing you. Please note the new rider will now be responsible for meeting the fundraising minimum.
I need to drop and do not have a replacement, but my friend/family member is still riding. Can I transfer any pledges I’ve received to their account?
Unfortunately, no, any pledges you raised prior to dropping from the bike tour cannot be transferred to another rider.
I need to drop from the ride, can I transfer my registration to next year?
Unless you are dropping for a medical reason and have a doctor’s certification you cannot transfer your registration to next year. Your registration is, unfortunately, non-refundable. If you are dropping for a medical reason and provide us with a doctor’s certification then you may transfer your registration to next year.
When will I receive my rider materials and what materials will I receive?
Every rider that meets their fundraising minimum will receive a rider packet. Your rider packet will be mailed out to the address you registered with. Your rider packet will contain the following items:
Which airport should we fly into?
The start of the ride is closest to General Mitchell International Airport. More information can be found here.
Is there a way that we can get our bikes to Milwaukee for the ride?
Yes! Our partners at Wheel & Sprocket have graciously set up a program for all of our riders. Please call the Fox Point store directly to set up receiving/assembly & disassembly/shipping back home.
Please call to arrange shipping:

Have the routes changed this year?
The route is subject to change due to construction.
What time does the bike tour start each morning? Is it a mass start?
In the past, the ride officially starts at 7:30 a.m. The start is very relaxed, as the Mequon roads are not closed off for our event. We will not have rest stops open before 7:30 a.m. and all riders must be on the route by 8:00 a.m. Please check back for updates to the start procedure and start times for 2023.
Is there a place we can park our car at MATC-Mequon on Saturday morning?
Yes, there is overnight parking available at MATC where you can leave your car, so most riders just drive themselves over to MATC and leave their cars there. After the bike tour concludes on Sunday afternoon, transportation will be provided for you, your bike and your luggage back to MATC in Mequon (the cost is included in your registration fee). One day riders that choose to ride on Sunday only will be transported back to Manitowoc.
What happens if it rains?
Rain itself will not cancel the ride, however; lightning will delay it. Please pay attention to warnings from staff and volunteers. Should you find yourself in an electrical storm, please refer to your route map for instructions.
Are we responsible for our own meals?
All meals are included. You will need to select (in the questions) if you are joining us for Saturday dinner. If you chose to have dinner off-campus, you may elect to donate your dinner back to the LLS mission. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all the riders and volunteers. We will also provide snacks on Saturday night. Family members joining you will need to have purchased a wristband prior to the event to participate in the meal.
Will there be E-bike charging stations available?
Be sure to bring your charger with you along the route if you plan to recharge during the day. Generally, high-quality batteries last 40-60 miles when used on elevation and course conditions similar to Scenic Shore. Wheel & Sprocket will provide power strips available for use at the following locations:
-Deland Park (lunch stop) – Mile 48
-Red Arrow Park (overnight)
Heritage Park (lunch stop) – Mile 50
Is there a bus available from Sturgeon Bay to Manitowoc?
Yes, we have coach bus return service to either Manitowoc (mid-point) or Manitowoc (mid-point). If you would like to change which bus you would like to take, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Where do we stay overnight in Manitowoc?
Outdoor tent camping and Indoor camping (YMCA) are included in your registration and are available to all riders. All riders may drop off their tents, sleeping bags, and other luggage at designated areas at the start line. Many riders chose to book a hotel in the Manitowoc area. The rider must book hotels and the cost will be at the rider’s expense. Free shuttle service is provided from the finish line to all hotels. Shuttles will also be provided on Sunday morning back to the start line. The provided hotel list has more information.
What do I do with my bike overnight at Manitowoc?
We have bike racks and overnight security guards to watch your bike for you. You do not need to transport it to your hotel.
Will showers be available at Midpoint?
Yes, showers will be available at the YMCA in Manitowoc on Saturday from 1-7pm and on Sunday morning from 7-9am. Shuttles will be provided to and from the YMCA for those that would like to use their shower facilities.
Can I bring my RV, camper, or pull behind trailer?
RVs, campers, and pull behind trailers will NOT be allowed on the route for rider safety, or at the midpoint in Manitowoc. There are some camping grounds in/near Manitowoc.
Can I have a pull behind on my bike during the ride?
No. Any type of pull behind on your bike is not allowed on the route.
