Thank you very much for your interest in our Host Housing program for this year’s Tucson Bicycle Classic. We hope to accommodate many riders, but Host Housing is limited. Below are the expectations of anybody using Host Housing and instructions on how to apply.
Will we be allowed in a host’s home while they are away?
Most likely, with the host’s permission. Remember, this is not a hotel. Hosts have gone out of their way for you to stay at their home. Please be respectful at all times and use the areas they have told you is okay and by all means clean up after yourself immediately.
Will they feed us?
No. Hosts often invite riders for a meal but it is not expected. You are expected to plan ahead and bring your own food and seasonings. You will have the use of the kitchen, some space in a refrigerator (may be located elsewhere), stove, etc. and counter space.
Please do not:
Will I have a place to do laundry?
Yes, if your host has a washer and dryer you can use them with their permission. Please always ask to use their washer and dryer to make sure you don’t interfere with your host’s schedule. Also, NEVER co-mingle your laundry with your hosts. And always time your laundry so that you never leave it sitting in the washer or dryer.
Where will I shower?
Your host will have a shower for you to use. You may have a shower just for you or you may have to share it with the host family. If you are sharing with the host family always ask if they need it first. In any event always clean up after each use.
Will hosts provide transportation?
What else do hosts expect of me?
Hosts expect riders to respect their home and furnishings. If something gets damaged or broken tell them immediately. They’ll find out eventually and it’s better from you than if they find it on their own.
Is it okay to leave a thank you gift for the hosts?
Absolutely! Some examples are: Signed Team Poster, Team T-shirt, anything cycling related is good.
Lastly, always leave your hosts home in the same or better condition than when you arrived.
How do I find a Host?
Simply click on the “FIND A HOST” button below and complete the Host Team/Rider form. You will be asked to include contact information and your USAC team/license.
