Welcome to Our 1st Annual PlaidER Day
This is for Plaid Jersey Earners Only

Sunday, August 15, 2021
Ride Sault Ste. Marie to St. Ignace

We wanted an excuse to see all of the wonderful Plaid Jersey Riders again,
so we came up with PlaidER Day.

If you earned a Plaid Jersey, you are invited to PlaidER Day 2021
(this invitation is only being sent to 20 people).

Plaider Day is FREE to ride.

What a great way to meet all the new Plaid Jersey earners and get a good ride in at the same time.

On Saturday, August 14th we start in Sault Ste. Marie, by awarding all the Plaid Jerseys to the new Plaid Jersey Earners.

On Sunday, August 15th we ride from The Soo to St. Ignace.

Of course you are always welcome to come back and ride other sections as well, for a small fee.

Please register online so we know your coming and we can make proper arrangements.


Please register online before June 1st,
so we know your coming and we can make proper arrangements.

PlaidER Day Includes

SAG Support

SAG Support will be provided by TDY.  If something happens to your bike we will do our best to fix it.  If your bike is not rideable, we will have support bring you to the next stop. We won’t leave you stranded in the middle of the U.P.

We have a lead SAG driver that stays in front of the first group of riders and another SAG driver that stays behind the last riders.  In between we have SAG drivers that continuously ride up and back to check in with riders.

All riders are expected to be to the finishing city by 7:00 pm.

Aid Stations

Aid stations will be located approximately every 30 miles of each section.

TDY will provide water at all stops.

Riders supply their own food and other drinks.

At the beginning of the day riders bring what they want at each stop to the starting location.  TDY will take it from there and make sure it is at the station you want it at when you get there.

All food/drinks must be marked with the riders name.

Luggage Pick Up & Drop Off

Luggage pick up and drop off to hotels and campsites within 5 miles of the host hotel is provided.

If you are staying at a hotel or campsite farther than 5 miles from the host hotel, we can transport your luggage for a small extra fee.

We do not provide luggage transportation to homes (Air BnB, VRBO, etc.).

Each rider may bring 2 soft sided bags, weighing no more than 25 lbs each.  Each bag weighing over 25 lbs will be charged a $10 per day fee.  Anyone who brings more than 2 bags will be charged a $10 per day fee.  NO EXCEPTIONS.

Cyclebration After Party

No matter where you start or finish your last section of TDY, you are invited to celebrate your great accomplishments with us at our Cyclebration Party.

Held in St. Ignace on the last day of riding (August 15, 2021).

Join us for food, music, drinks and most of all FUN.

All riders, volunteers and workers are invited to this party.

Transportation to Sault Ste. Marie

Transportation from St. Ignace to Sault Ste. Marie is available on Saturday, August 14th, leaving St. Ignace at 2:00 pm.

If needed, select at check out for $25 per rider.


As you know, an event of this magnitude takes many volunteers and hopefully in 2021 they’ll be easier to come by.

If you are interested in helping out, please email us.  We would greatly appreciate your support and we’re positive new and returning riders would love to hear your TDY stories.
