Trek 100 Frequently Asked Questions
Is the event happening at Trek Headquarters this year?
The 2021 Trek 100 is a ride-from-home event. There will be no organized Trek 100 rides from Trek Headquarters this year. On August 21, please enjoy a ride on your own and with loved ones. Your local Trek retailer can give you great suggestions and even help tailor a ride to your chosen distance.
What should I bring on my ride?
Check out the link below for a video detailing the essential gear you should carry on your ride. It's helpful to have a support crew, so talk with friends and family to help you with nutrition, bike support, and encouragement on your ride! Reach out to your local Trek retailer and ask for route suggestions.
What if the weather is bad?
Check the weather ahead of time and use your best judgment, and plan your ride for when the skies are clear. You can always ride inside on your trainer, too!
What can I do to ensure a smooth ride?
Make sure your bike is ready to roll by having it tuned at your local Trek retailer. Please plan ahead and have emergency contacts ready to help you out on the road. Share your route and planned start and finish times with friends and family, and be sure to carry a cell phone so you can reach out to them in case of emergency.
How can I share my ride?
Document your ride on the Trek 100 Strava club and tagging us in Instagram posts using the hashtag #Trek100.
We encourage social distancing and safe, healthy riding practices for everyone. Feel free to ride with loved ones, but please ride within your comfort zone and make the right decision for yourself and your community!
How do I get a customized race number and frame sticker?
