Youth rider registration is a one-time fee of $35, however, youth riders are encouraged to fundraise as well. 

Why did registration fees go up?
In order to provide the best possible experience to our riders, the ride day experience, and provide as much funding to Nurse Navigation as possible, the decision was made to increase the overall fundraising minimum.  If you have further questions, please feel free to give us a call!

We highly encourage all participants to know basic safety and repair skills, including fixing a flat tire. If you have your own pump and extra tubes for your bike we recommend you bring them. However, if you are unable to make the repair we will have local bike shop experts stationed at rest stops around the course that can pick you up or help with a repair. Visit your local bike shop to learn how to handle basic repair needs.

Is there medical onsite?
Yes! Thank you to Stewarts Ambulance Service for serving our P4P riders each year. Stewarts will be stationed at the park and will be available around the course or on a needed basis.  We hope everyone has a safe ride!
