Vision Quest Update – Aid Station 2 Bags and Pre-Registration

Although we will be providing Cytomax, water, Clif Bars, bananas and oranges at both Aid Station 1 (at the bottom of the Silverado Motorway) and Aid Station 2 (at the Holy Jim Parking area), many of you are asking if you can have a bag with clothes or other personal supplies taken to Aid Station 2 (as was done in year’s past).

To save support staff time and shipping costs, we will only allow disposable personal supply bags to be taken out to Aid Station 2.

If you want to bring your own supplies to Aid Station 2 – we must be able to throw away any left over contents and the clearly marked BAG they are in. WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY NON-DISPOSALBE ITEMS PLACED IN THE BAGS ONCE THEY ARE TRANSPORTED TO AID STATION 2.

Aid Station 2 bags must be dropped off at Switchback Cyclery when you pre-register there for the Early 5:00 a.m. start. Early starters are responsible for their transportation to the start at the end of Black Star Canyon Road (the event finishes 1/4 mile from O’Neill Park).

Those pre-registering because they are transporting themselves to the regular 6:00 a.m. start must also drop off their personal supply bags when they pre-register at Switchback Cyclery.

Pre-Registration will be open at Switchback Cyclery from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. beginning Saturday, February 25th and ending on Friday, March 3rd. Registration for those from out of town who are camping out at O’Neill Park will begin at 8:00 p.m. Friday night and end at 9:00 p.m.

If you are participating in the regular 6:00 a.m. start, and are taking the shuttle from the finish at O’Neill Park to the start at Black Star, you can drop off your Aid Station 2 bag at the registration table at O’Neill Park when you register Saturday morning. Registration at O’Neill Park begins at 4:00 A.M.

Those participating in the regular start can also pre-register at Switchback Cyclery to save themselves time the morning of the event; but allow at least 30 minutes for parking and the loading of your bikes at O’Neill Park Saturday morning.

The shuttle busses to the start at Black Star Canyon Road will leave as they are loaded beginning at 4:15 a.m.


We will be providing baked goods, coffee, apples, bananas, oranges, OJ, instant oatmeal and hot chocolate at the start at Black Star Canyon Road for both the early and regular starters beginning at 4:30 a.m.
