YOUR CREDIT REPORTS When was the last time you checked your credit reports? Did you ever? Did you know that you can check your credit reports free once a year from the three big agencies -- Equifax, Experian and TransUnion -- directly online or from Why do you check? To find out if there are charges against you, loans made in your name, charge accounts that you never opened or other disparities from your records. These unknown and unacknowledged debts can seriously affect your credit score and count against you when you need to get credit yourself. The fin'st time you check, it's wise to get reports from all three of the agencies. They don't share information so you'll want to spot a~d dispute any possible problems on all the reports. After that, wait a year until the reports are free again, then check one report every four months. Or contact the agencies to alert them to possible fraud using your name.

We don't know the exact numbers as a couple of hundred have been known to show up on the day of. Each committee on the Mile High has a huge task and takes anywhere from two people to 20 people to make their part happen. We have the marketing committee, the rest stops teams (a huge endeavor), the bike raffle team and the SAG wagon team, which requires up to eight cars patrolling their area for the day for riders that need help. We have the food committee to feed, snack and hydrate each rider, we have the registration committee which requires local economy and Invest in Plumas County! two sessions of signups the night before and morning of, manned by six to eight people each session, we have the set up teams, clean up teams, the goody bag team, the sponsorship and donation committee.
