No problem! RIDE/WALK Anywhere allows teams 40 minutes or more away from a RIDE location to be able to register, raise funds and participate for the RIDE-approved charity of their choice.
All RIDE/WALK Anywhere teams must ride or walk on September 29, 2018, to align with our national event and the campaign they are riding for.
The RIDE/WALK Anywhere program is for use by teams who are located 40 minutes or more away from an official RIDE site. Search our list of locations here to see which is closest to you.
All riders/walkers must register online to help us monitor your team size and the average age for safety purposes and, to ensure the online waiver form is accepted during registration. You can't participate without registering online and Team Captains are required to enforce this.

Everyone loves our groovy, long-sleeved RIDE t-shirts. To ensure you receive yours, please read below carefully:
RIDE/WALK Anywhere cannot exceed 30 participants. One large team or a couple average sized teams is the maximum permitted. We carefully monitor team size and location and communicate directly with each Team Captain to ensure compliance.
Team captains are responsible for ensuring all riders and walkers:
Our family (2 adults, 2 kids) is riding (or walking) as a team. Will you send us all a t-shirt?
This calls for some RIDE math! If your family team has raised: ($150 x 2)+($75 x 2) = $450 collectively, then we'd be happy to send you 4 t-shirts to the team captain's home address. Make sure each team member is registered online and has selected their preferred t-shirt size.
Our youth group is riding and one team member raised way more than the others - will you send us all t-shirts?
Not in this case. Family teams are a little different since most will be drawing from a common group of friends and family members for donations, and so we allow them to pool their fundraising results. For all other teams, we'll calculate how many on the team have raised $150 (adults) or $75 (youth by September 15, and send the appropriate number of t-shirts to the team captain. And don't try to tell us all of your teammates are sixteenth cousins...
What if I don't raise $150 / $75 until after the Sept. 15 deadline? Will you still send me a t-shirt?
We sure will - but after Sept. 29th (if we still have your size available).
What do I do with the money I raised for my partner charity?
All donations must be collected online, or for cash donations, settled online using your own credit card or PayPal account. You can enter cash or cheque donations into your page by logging in to FundHub. Navigate to the "Enter $$ or Cheques" tab, and enter your donor's information and donation amount. Once that information is saved, you can pay the pledge by credit card or PayPal. As long as you include your donor's full mailing address and email address, a receipt will be sent to your donor as soon as you pay off the donation.
