WHAT IS HOST HOUSING?
Many professional and amateur cycling teams arrive a day or two in advance of the bike race events. Families that Host House for the Tour de Bloom provide accommodations for riders. By signing up, you commit to providing a roof over their head (s) along with a place to sleep, shower and laundry. They also need a safe location for their bicycles. You can host 1 or more riders!
Tour de Bloom coincides with the Apple Blossom Festival which is April 25th to May 5th, 2024. Race dates are May 2nd to May 5th, 2024.
Do I have to feed the riders?
No, just make some space in the fridge and counter for their food.
What if I have pets?
No problem, just let the host housing coordinator know and we’ll appropriately.
Share house rules regarding pets.
What if I am away from home or at work?
No problem, just let the riders know how to lock/unlock the doors.
