Scooter Cannonball Support Truck
By purchasing this item, you are reserving tire storage space and basic roadside assistance and scooter transport/hauling services (described below) on the Scooter Cannonball Support Truck.
Reservations are transferable between riders prior to the start of the event but otherwise non-refundable. A maximum of 35 slots will be made available. The price is subject to change after June 1, 2021. Riders may purchase multiple reservations that may be transferred prior to the start of the event or "gifted" during the event at face value to an "uninsured" rider.
The driver will carry a satellite phone and regular cellular network device with text messaging capabilities. The numbers for these devices will be made available through the Scooter Cannonball App. The driver will also carry a location sharing device (SPOT/InReach) and its last known location will be posted on the rider tracking map.
Scooter hauling is available if you have experienced a mechanical failure or injury while riding and are unable to continue that day. If you are injured, or for any other reason, at any time during the event unable to continue traveling with the event, your scooter will not be transported. Example: If you are in an accident that requires medical transport, the scooter will need to be separately transported and secured by local authorities.
If your scooter has interchangeable front and rear tires and rims, you are permitted to store a single pre-mounted spare tire in the truck. If your scooter has dissimilar front and rear tires and rims, you are permitted to store pre-mounted front and rear tires in the truck. The truck will be parked overnight at the finish hotel. You will need to coordinate with the driver to access your property - no shared/community (key/lock combination) access.
If you are storing a tire in the truck you are expected to have the tools and knowledge to complete the repair roadside without assistance from the driver. If your repair cannot be completed in a reasonable amount of time (~20 minutes) the driver will offer to haul your scooter (and yourself as a passenger, space available) or the driver will continue along the route. If you decline this offer the driver is under no obligation to return and provide further support that day.
The support truck will depart from the starting hotel (or vicinity thereof) each day no earlier than 9AM. The driver will travel the predefined route at posted speeds. It is your responsibility depart the starting hotel each morning at a such a time, given your riding pace, creates a reasonable time-distance buffer between yourself and the support truck each day. If you choose to deviate from predefined route, you understand that you are doing so at your own risk. The driver is under no obligation to backtrack or deviate to retrieve you if you leave late, fall behind, or travel off the course.
Passenger seating in the truck is limited. There may be situations where space is unavailable to transport you as a passenger. You will be responsible for securing your own transportation to the hotel. Passenger space constraints will be made known up front when contacting the driver. You must pass the CDC COVID-19 Screening questionnaire to travel as a passenger in the support truck.
Scooters will be arranged and transported in a way that optimizes available space in the enclosed truck (L12' x W6'). While every attempt will be made to avoid scratches and dents to your scooter it is likely to happen given the nature of this offering.
If space permits your scooter may be transported for multiple days, however, the priority each day is to preserve space for future breakdowns. The absolute furthest your property will be transported is the finish line location in Eureka, California. Once the truck arrives at the finish line, all tires and scooters will be unloaded, and the truck emptied.
You are strongly encouraged to share your location as you travel using the Cannonball App or SPOT, InReach device. This will allow the driver to locate you more easily during a breakdown and maintain a reasonable distance behind all riders. You are responsible for contacting the support driver and accurately sharing your location (latitude, longitude). In areas without cell phone service this may require you to pass a message to another motorist or scooter rider to make contact on your behalf. If you choose to passively remain roadside praying for rescue your prayers may go unanswered.
Tires and scooters being carried will be tagged to identify the owner. You may choose to write on the tag who, or under which conditions, another rider can use your tires or cannibalize a scooter part. The driver will take reasonable efforts to safeguard your property and trust that other riders are acting in good faith with respect to borrowing tires or parts. If you do not want another rider to use your property under any circumstances, please indicate that on your tag or property itself.
You understand that your property is not insured by the driver or the Scooter Cannonball event. The support truck could be involved in an accident or theft that results in total loss of your property. The truck could experience a mechanical failure that results it not arriving at the finish hotel at the expected day or time. You will be required to sign a Release and Waiver of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement prior to the driver accepting any property that more specifically reaffirms these risks and your acceptance of them.
You will receive a separate email after you place your order confirming your rider information.
