Platinum Designation

Platinum cyclists are those in the 100-mile distance with extensive experience in riding in a pack/peloton. Cyclists must meet specific criteria to earn platinum designation and must attend a special meeting.  Visit the Platinum Designation information in the Rider Guide for more information including meeting times, how to get the pass required to enter the platinum corral on ride day, etc.

ALL PLATINUM PASSES EXPIRE AT 6:30am on ride day.  No exceptions.  Be in the platinum corral before 6:30am or you will not be allowed to enter.  Opening ceremonies will have begun.  If you earned platinum, don’t waste it by being late.
