Set for the second Saturday of June, the 2015 Ride for Life features cycling opportunities for families with young cyclists on the In-Town Family Ride and five out of town routes ranging from the Leg Stretcher at 30km/19 miles to the Iron Ride coming in at 112 miles for individual cyclists. In addition to the six fully supported routes, there is a complimentary meal with desserts and beverages served after the ride.
Early registration is available through Thursday, June 11th and is $20 for your entire family on the Family Ride and $30 for individual cyclists. Day of ride registration remains $20 for the Family Ride and is $40 for individual cyclists.
For Individual Cyclists, registration is @ https://www.bethemomentum.com/event/ride-for-life
For the Family Ride, registration is @ https://www.bethemomentum.com/event/ride-for-life-family
Although not a ride requiring fund-raising beyond the registration fee, we have had requests through the years to provide that opportunity to riders in the RfL. So, as you register, you will be given the opportunity to create a fund-raising page. If you ride as part of a team, this will also support team donations. Again, the RfL does not require fund-raising to participate; however, you will have that ability if you wish to recruit others to 'ride' with you and your team.
Day of ride sign-in and registration begins at 7:15am. Route details are as follows:
Family Ride (2.5 to 8.5 miles, Heads out at 9:00am)
Leg Stretcher (30 km/19 miles, Heads out @ 8:30am)
Half Metric Century (50 km/31 miles, Heads out @ 8:30am)
Metric Century (100 km/62 miles, Heads out @ 8:00am)
English Century (160 km/100 miles, Heads out @ 8:00am) +
Iron Ride (~180 km/112 miles, Heads out @ 8:00am) +,*
(+) Both the English Century and Iron Ride feature a light lunch at the rest stop near the 50 mile mark in Broadway.
(*) On the Iron Ride, you can bring a personal needs bag that will be available for you near the half way point of the ride and waiting for you upon completion of your Ride for Life.
