Frequently Asked Questions

How many people per team?

You can have anywhere from 2 to 4 people on your team, just depends how much you each want to ride.

Do we have to use the same bike?

No, each rider can be on their own bike!

Do we have to raise money to participate in the event?

No, raising money is simply an option and is not required. 

Will the race take place on the banks? 

Nope! The race will take place right on the track but will stay off the banks to avoid unnecessary risk or injury for those who don't have experience with velodrome. We love velodrome, but this will not be a velodrome-style race.

Is entrance to the Infield Festival free?

Yes! There is no charge to festival participants.
