SAG stands for Support and Gear. A SAG vehicle supports cyclists by carrying supplies such as food, water, and bike tools
so that they can comfortably and safely complete their ride. The SAG vehicle can also transport cyclists and their bikes in
the event that need to rest along the route or cannot complete the ride, and can help to keep track of multiple riders.
Think of SAG as your personal bike escort.
What types of service are available?
We will customize the SAG service to your needs. It can be as simple as a drop-off or pick-up on either end of your ride,
or we can provide continuous support along your route with multiple pit stops. Let us know what your preferences are
and we will make it happen.
Who needs SAG?
Everyone ranging from professionals to trainees to recreational cyclists can benefit from our SAG services. Whether you
are a first-timer on a century or a highly trained cyclist, the SAG vehicle can help you achieve your personal best.
Can’t I ride without SAG?
Maybe you could, but a SAG escort can improve your ride experience in many ways. Unfortunately, accidents happen.
Bike problems, injuries, fatigue, traffic collisions. It’s better to plan for the unexpected. A high-visibility vehicle escort will
help keep a wide perimeter for cyclists on roads with vehicle traffic. With our service you can ride like the pros, focus on
your ride and know that we have your back. We’ll pack your tubes, water, and food. We can accompany you on the road
or set up rest stops along the route. If you bonk we’ll pick you up. If members of your group have fallen far behind, we
can bring them to the head of the pack so that everyone stays together. For your return trip, we are more reliable and
more comfortable than the train. Just relax, know that your bike is safe, have a drink and watch videos with your friends.

What our clients are saying about the Crazy Bear Bikes SAG service:
Thank you for the SAG service for our [century ride] from Orange County to San Diego. I am absolutely impressed with
the services that Xavier provided us for our EPIC adventure. Xavier was very friendly, sociable, and responsive. He really
took care of us and our needs. Xavier was so critical to our success keeping us informed, refreshed, replenished,
hydrated, and injury-free. We were a motley crew of cycling experience, and somehow, Xavier was able to keep track of
the seven of us.
A first time challenge for most of us, he helped make this the most fantastic ride ever! We were apprehensive about the
ride, and Xavier was so supportive and encouraging. He kept track of us, our bikes and our gear, making it easy to focus
on the ride…. There were inclines, traffic, bumpy roads. We had to overcome fears, muscle weakness, burning quads and
chamois parts, separation from the group, mental and physical stress abound. Each time we met our mile marker goals
Xavier was there to keep us reinvigorated, nourished, and bikes maintained when needed for the next leg of the ride. It
was a major personal accomplishment for all of us and a valuable experience knowing we are able to complete an
ambitious task. He was very much a part of the experience and I am very so grateful that he was there to help us get to
the finish line and returned home safely for our first century ride. I know that I could not have done it without his help.
I recommend Crazy Bear for anyone who needs bike support on their cycling journeys.
