You are encouraged to pre-register online and agree to terms of the liability waiver to make our start go smoothly and quickly.

Count on the 5km route taking 45 minutes and the 15km ride taking 1½ hours. Route lengths and times are approximate. Select the shorter route if this is your first time or you are unsure about your abilities.​

No one is left behind. If you must leave the route, please notify the Ride Sweep, who tries to keep count of our riders!
