  1. I’m keenly interested in Saturday’s Bubble Bistro, so I can cheer riders on as they finish day one. Can I get more info – where will it be, what are its hours of operation and what is this mystical Bubble Bistro?

  2. Hi, Amy. The Bubble Bistro is a shaded area reserved for several of our clients with MS so they can get up close to both the Day 1 and the Day 2 Finish Lines. Feel free to call Carrie Dahlquist at 210-694-3234 if you are interested in participating.

  3. Is breakfast provided the first day at the alamodome or do we eat beforehand?
