In-kind donations will be accepted by the local pit stops through April to help feed and hydrate the masses. Other donated products or services which are well-suited to the participating bicyclists are also welcome. If your company/organization becomes a local pit stop sponsor, send us your logo and we’ll place it on the pit stop page. If you’re interested in sponsoring at the local pit stop level please contact the individual pit stop manager(s) in your area found on the pit stop pages.
