Golf Cart Rental – We have a group arrangement with the contractor that brings in the golf carts which always sell out so if you want one it’s best to book early. Contact Vicki@Ducati.net for the group booking form. Because outside carts are not allowed, helmets are required for bikes and the shuttle generally runs full and spends a lot of time dropping off and picking up, many of us find that renting a golf cart is hard to beat at this event. Rentals start at $98 a day, two day minimum
