What if I’m not a rider?

You can have just as much fun―and help those in need just as well―by signing up to:
  • Volunteer…  you’re badly needed for rest stops, course marshals, and much more.
  • Do It Yourself…  get creative, alone or with friends: hike, do a service project, or ?
  • Fundraise or Donate Only…  help your club with making the world a better place.
 

How much does it cost?

Only riders pay the Denver Century fee… $65 to $99 based on the route you select and how soon you sign up. You get police, rest stops, lunch, beer, post-party, and more.  All others pay nothing, and volunteers even get lunch, beer, and the post-party. You’re not required to fundraise or donate… but please do help raise as much as you can!
 

How much could my club raise?

  • Last year 119 participants from 19 clubs raised $86,000… $83,000 net.
  • One club had 80% participation… they averaged over $500 per member.
  • Multiply your # of members by $500... what would it come to?
  • Tucson’s “Ride to End Polio” has raised ~$17 million in 11 years… we can too!
 

How much will my club keep?

100% of all you raise, less ~1% expense and 4% card processor’s fee. A club foundation serves as the nonprofit clearinghouse for all donations. Your club is free to use your proceeds as you wish.
 

What if my club doesn’t participate?

Just sign up individually and the money you raise will go to your club… but if your club does participate, a lot more members will sign up and raise a lot more money!
 

Will the Woohoo impact our other fundraisers?

No… the Woohoo taps a new source of funds by emailing friends and family nationwide.
 

Can I invite family and friends to join me?

Yes… they can sign up, and can also fundraise or donate, though it’s not required. Use the Woohoo to introduce them to your club.
 

What if I don’t live near Denver?

Local Rotarians are opening their homes to out-of-town guests. Come join us and make new friends.
 

What about COVID?

We all hope COVID will be under control by September, but the Denver Century will still follow all State guidelines. In the unlikely event it has to cancel, the Woohoo will proceed with its own fun ride like last year.
 

Who controls the Woohoo?

Every participating club gets a seat on the Woohoo Board. The Woohoo was inspired by the Ride to End Polio in Tucson. District 5500 in Southern Arizona has used it to raise $17 million in the last 11 years. The Woohoo was designed from the start as a District-wide fundraiser.
 

Can I ride an electric bike?

Absolutely! If it gets you outdoors and exercising, go for it. Just try not to lord it over your friends on their "so last century" bikes.
