Host Housing Program

Who: The Valley of the Sun Stage Race is searching for families in the Phoenix Area who would like to host riders for the 2019 race!

What: Host housing is needed for men’s, women’s and junior bicycle racing teams competing at the 2019 Valley of the Sun Stage Race – This is an opportunity to help racers striving to fulfill dreams in bike racing.

When: Race Dates Feb 15-17, 2019. Teams typically arrive Thursday 14th (in some cases Wednesday 13th) and leave Sunday 17th or Monday 18th.

We are in search of “hosts” who live within the greater Phoenix Metro area. Opportunities exist to host members from men’s and women’s and junior teams.

Host homes need to provide: a bed space (couch or air mattress is fine) for each rider, kitchen privileges and refrigerator space; garage or other safekeeping space for bicycles.

Host homes ARE NOT expected to provide: transportation or food. Teams/individuals will provide their own transportation and meals. However many hosts do like to provide some shared meals, but are not expected to do so. Host families are encouraged to engage with their guest racers, as experience shows that involved host families find the experience most rewarding when they connect with their guests.

If you would like to host an individual or cycling team, please provide the following information:

Your name: _______________________________

Address: _______________________________

City: _______________________________

Phone: _______________________________

Email: _______________________________

The number of riders and/or team staff you can accommodate: _____ rider/s

Do you have a preference for hosting: men ___ women ___ or junior ____team

Whether you can host one or two riders, or whether you and your neighbors can host a team of 6 or 11; we want to hear from you!

Please email a copy of the above information to : hosthousing@wmrc.org

Thank you for helping making the Valley of the Sun Stage Race a great success.
