Comments: Per the event website, breakfast burritos will be provided at the start of the event and a catered lunch in Glen Echo. Food will be supplied by commercial food vendors. Please ensure the vendors hold current 2019 Colorado Retail Food Licenses.

As this event takes place during Thunder in the Rockies at Harley Davidson in Loveland, portable restrooms will be provided at the start of the event. Please provide portable restrooms for the Glen Echo lunch as the area is served by septic systems and the 500 riders could overwhelm these systems. The event coordinators have provided portable restrooms in the past. For a 3 hour lunch with no alcohol, 4 portable toilets are recommended for 500 riders.

It is strongly recommended that a hand wash station be provided for the restroom area.

Trash receptacles shall be provided at the lunch stop where food is served, as well as the portable restrooms area.

Potable water shall be made available to riders during the lunch.
