Orientation offers a chance for team members to get acquainted, learn about people with disabilities and participate in skills assessments, training rides and safety training to prepare them for the life-changing events ahead. Family and friends are welcome and encouraged to attend the kick-off; however, it is important that any family or friends planning on coming to Seattle understand that orientation is very busy and team members have meetings and training taking up a large portion of their time. Most family and friends take this time to see some of the different sites in Seattle. In fact, many team members and their families arrive early to sight-see.
