Do you want to participate in the RIDE, but live too far away from an official RIDE location? No problem!


If you have a bike or a pair of shoes and want to be part of the fun, RIDE/WALK Anywhere could be perfect for you.


RIDE/WALK Anywhere allows teams an hour or more away from a RIDE location to be able to register, raise funds and ride for the RIDE-approved charity of their choice.


How it works: Short Version

* Register a team with three or more friends

* Map out a nice safe route to ride or walk on

* Fundraise online and ride/walk together on September 30, 2017

  • For those who reach $150 between September 12 and Oct 1st, we'll mail a t-shirt to your team captain for you in early October.


Route Details

Routes

  • Team Captains are responsible for selecting safe routes.
  • We strongly encourage team captains to cycle or drive the route before RIDE Day to ensure all roads are open and safe. Generally speaking, you should select a clockwise direction for safer right-hand turns, controlled access intersections and roads with bike lanes and slower speeds.

Safety

Team captains are responsible for ensuring all riders:

  • Have registered online and have accepted the online waiver
  • Follow the rules of the road
  • Ride in single file
  • Wear a helmet
  • Confirm that at least one member has a cell phone for emergency contact


What to Bring

  • a helmet (mandatory for all riders)
  • your bike (or walking shoes!)
  • warm layers with moisture repelling clothing if cold or windy
  • water bottle - filled with icy cold water
  • a cell phone for emergencies
  • extra food or snacks
  • a passion for the charity you're riding or walking for

Late September can be cool, with rain and wind. The weather might also be gorgeous and sunny. Be sure to keep your eye on the forecast.
