Should you prefer a hotel other than the Hampton you can choose from a variety of hotel options at both locations.

Please keep in mind that you will need to be punctual for assembly and departure. We will leave on schedule each day to ensure we meet the schedule meeting at hotels and especially with Hagerty. A route map will be provided electronically to each rider so that in the event a rider is not punctual or steers from the group they will be able to catch at some point.
