Getting from the Finish
Three-day riders who need a ride from the finish in Siesta Key, FL, back to the Hilton Garden Inn in Temple Terrace, FL or to the Tampa International airport or Sarasota airport must purchase a bus ticket online before March 9, 2018. We will also transport your bike with you.
The buses will leave Siesta Key at 3:30 pm. If you are booking a Sunday evening flight, please give yourself extra time when choosing the return flight. The bus ride to Tampa Airport will take 90 minutes without traffic, and to Sarasota airport 45 minutes without traffic. Please add 30 minutes to this travel time as an additional buffer.
One-day riders will both finish and begin at the Marriott Courtyard Bradenton Sarasota/Riverfront. You may leave your car parked at the Marriott Courtyard. If you would like to stay for the dinner program at the Marriott Courtyard, please purchase your dinner ticket here.
