Private Home Stay Program
The purpose of the Private Home Stay Program is to provide cyclists who prefer not to camp or stay at hotels with a bed and a bathroom. It is a great way for cyclists to meet local residents and learn more about the community they’re passing through. By reserving a room, at a very modest price, through the Private Home Stay Program, you will not only enjoy the comforts of home, but you will help generate revenue for a deserving group or organization in the area!
If you are interested in requesting a home stay, please contact the following individuals who are coordinating in their respective communities:
Kersey (Thursday, 9/14):
Kersey is no longer taking requests for private home stays on Thursday. Please considering hotel accommodations, camping, or Sherpa Camping for Thursday evening. Thank you.

Brush! (Saturday, 9/16):
