We realize there’s a huge amount of information below; and it may appear that we’re a bit hard-nosed…
Honestly, we’d rather not have published this page. However, from a liability standpoint, we must provide this information so everyone knows what to expect. The below policies and rules are consistent with our insurance requirements, and our obligations pursuant to numerous event permits. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Rules for Riding on Planet Ultra (in Addition to Everything Else On This Page and All Event-Specific Rules)
- Your event is a ride, not a race.
- Be safe and be courteous. We are stewards of our great sport of cycling.
- Carry and/or wear the official event ID (number plate, wristband and/or helmet number) provided at check-in. Riders without the ID may be refused support. “Bandit riders” will be banned from future Planet Ultra events, as will the person who brought the bandit if we know who you are.
- Carry proper identification, a cell phone and personal emergency contact phone number at all times.
- Wear your helmet at all times.
- Upon request, you must submit personal electronic proof of completion with a Strava or RideWithGPS link which came from your own route tracking device.
- No headphones, ear buds, or other listening devices.
- Know and obey all laws and all relevant aspects of the California Motor Vehicle Code. Riders who break laws and/or ride unsafely will be disqualified from the event.
- Follow the basic rules for safe cycling: Ride to the right, single file. Stop at all stop signs and red signals. Protect and warn one another about road hazards and traffic. Don’t overlap wheels. Practice safe paceline and group riding etiquette.
- DO NOT urinate in public view, or within 1/4 mile of any checkpoint. At aid stations, use the designated toilet facilities or portable toilets. (We apologize for even having to state the obvious, but some folks just don’t get it.)
- When cycling at night, carry and use legal bicycle lights and wear both a left and right reflective ankle band.
- Start your ride at one of the designated start times available for the event unless opting for the “Tourist” division.
- Check in at each Aid Station (unless otherwise specified); AND at the finish line. If you withdraw, please let event staff know. We worry about you. Please don’t “go missing.”
- If you go off course or you will not reach an aid station before the closing time stated on the route sheet, please immediately text or call Planet Ultra and let someone know where you are. If you don’t call/text before the aid station closing time, you’ll be considered as having abandoned the ride and you must arrange your own transportation.
- Planet Ultra staff has discretion to require you to SAG forward if you’re significantly behind the closing time of any checkpoint, or for any other safety reason. If you refuse SAG, no further support will be given.
- Planet Ultra Route Sheets are proprietary and for your personal use only while participating in the event. Please do not reproduce Planet Ultra Route Sheets for any purpose, including, but not limited to posting on the internet, or in any other public media, club newsletter, etc.
- Results are FINAL 7 days after the event. If we’ve made a mistake posting your result, you must let us know within that time.
- You’re expected to have read and be familiar with all Planet Ultra rules, regulations, policies and procedures on this page and elsewhere on this website.
- Enjoy the scenery. Take photos and share them on social media.
- HAVE FUN and BE JOYFUL!
Planet Ultra reserves the right to disqualify any rider who violates any of the above rules, or for any other safety violation or other unsportsmanlike conduct, without warning.
