How serious is the 60-pound weight limit for bags? Can I bring two bags instead of one?

February 1, 2016 Comments Off on How serious is the 60-pound weight limit for bags? Can I bring two bags instead of one?


Each rider may bring no more than two bags (duffle or cargo bags are ideal). The combined weight of your transported luggage must not exceed 60 pounds, and no one bag may exceed 45 pounds. This weight limit includes your tent and sleeping bag. The weight restriction is in consideration of the volunteers who must handle the luggage. Please take the time to weigh your bag(s) and pack accordingly. All luggage will be weighed at check in and any single bag weighing more than 45 pounds will need to be adjusted. No exceptions.

In the event of rainy weather, your luggage may sit uncovered outdoors for some period of time (while we will do what we can to keep luggage dry, we cannot guarantee that luggage won’t get wet). We highly recommend that you use waterproof luggage or bring heavy duty trash bags to wrap your luggage if rain is in the forecast. Past riders recommend using ziplock bags for items inside your luggage, and lining the inside of your bags with heavy duty trash bags for extra protection, to ensure your possessions remain dry.
