BEFORE THE RIDE
Training - Most likely you’re not used to riding such a distance in one day, then waking up the next morning and doing it all over again. So we’ll help you get ready to do just that! We’ll organize Training Rides. We’ll also provide Orientation sessions where you’ll learn more about bike basics in case you’ve never changed a bike tire or want to know the difference between a road and a mountain bike. Once you sign up, you’ll also receive a Manual to learn about proper nutrition and track your training progress. And last but not least, you can always call your actual human Ride Guides.
Fundraising - No matter if this is your first time fundraising, or you’re an old pro, we’ll help you reach and exceed your goals. From an informative Manual, to your own fundraising webpage, to personal advice, we’ll be there for you the whole way. That’s our promise.
Not rich? Not an athlete? Not a problem! Visit the Fundraising and Training sections of our website to learn more on how to gear up for The Ride.
ON THE ROAD
Safety first - Your safety is our number one priority. Every detail of the event is studied and executed with the greatest of care. We don’t take chances when it comes to your safety. To ensure that safety is first in your mind as well as ours, all participants attend a mandatory safety video presentation. It is informative, inspiring, and thorough. Our motto: “STAY ALERT. STAY ALIVE.”
Medical care - You’ll never be far away from medical attention at any point along the route, should you need it. We have an incredible team of Volunteer doctors and other medical professionals at Camp and Pit Stops along the route. No matter what ails you, you’re always cared for.
Pit stops along the way - Out on the road regular Pit Stops line the route every 15-20 miles, stocked with water, sports drinks, high-energy snacks, and other good things to keep you going as you peddle to conquer cancer. We also provide toilet facilities at Pit Stops and other key locations along the route.
Gear - You will drop off your luggage to Camp in the morning, leaving you free to focus on your journey, and pick it up at Camp that night. It’s that simple!
Camp life - After a long day’s journey, you’ll settle into your comfortable, Ride-provided tent. But before you hit the hay, you can enjoy all the amenities available in your new home away from home, including hot showers, dinner, and an evening of entertainment. You'll also have free access to medical attention and massage services.
OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
We'll make sure you never go hungry or thirsty - In addition to a bagged lunch, you’ll get a delicious, hot, catered breakfast and dinner while on the event. We have delicious, nutritious meals specially designed to keep you fueled for the miles ahead.
No-one is left behind - If for any reason at all, you don’t feel you can or should finish the day’s distance, there will be ample transportation to Camp. Just flag down a Sweep vehicle. The bottom line is that we want The Ride to be safe and enjoyable for you. We will do everything possible to make that happen.
