Welcome and congratulations on joining the Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure! This page is the gathering point for useful resources for our cyclists.

The Rider Guide
The Rider Guide is one place for almost everything you need to know to prepare for your journey! You definitely want to download and read this. This year, we’ve designed a set of Rider Guides which contain information unique to each of our Summer rides: the West Coast route, the Atlantic Coast route and the Cross-Country Route. If you are looking for something specific, you can also browse the links below for shortcuts to topics covered by the Rider Guides.
