Let's get started....

  3. Read your Ride Guide below...


AttaBoy Ride (in conjunction w/ the Breast Cancer Ride):
 Saturday, August 13, 2016

CHECK-IN INFO

Check In: Every participant must attend Check In on the morning of the Ride (Saturday, August 13, 2016). Check In opens at 7:00am and closes at 7:45am. All Riders will depart ECC back patio at 8:00am sharp!

Check In / Packet Pick-Up Agenda: 

  • Donations (*Volunteers can skip this step unless you have donations to be turned in.)

    • If you have raised $350 or more, thank you!  

    • For those required to raise $350, if you have raised under $350, you must turn in all remaining donations at this time. There is NO Delayed Self-Pledge option.
    • Or, if you have determined that you won't be able to raise the funds, you do have the option to switch to Volunteer, or back out of the Ride entirely.  (Donations and registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.  You will not be responsible for the remaining fundraising requirement if you back out or switch to a volunteer.)

    • Regardless of your situation, or if you are a Volunteer, any donations can be turned in at Packet Pick-Up/Check-In.

  • First Aid/Emergency Form 
    • Complete your First Aid Form online.

    • The First Aid Form is confidential and we do not share this information. We only access this information in the event of an emergency, illness or injury. We shred all First Aid Forms after the Ride.

    • Please understand that this First Aid Form will allow us to take action immediately should you become sick or injured. It is imperative that you fill it out correctly.

  • Materials
    • Riders will receive a wristband(s) and yellow handlebar band. 

    • Volunteers will receive a wristband(s), and additional Ride information.  

    • Both Riders and Volunteers will receive a t-shirt.

  • Limited Ride merchandise (jerseys and t-shirts) will be available at Check-In. Our full inventory will be available at the Finish Line.

Teams
As a reminder, we do allow teams to pool their fundraising dollars but please continue reading to clearly understand what that means. To figure out your required team fundraising total, add up the required fundraising minimum of each teammate (example: if the team has 2 adult Riders, 1 minor Rider, and 1 Volunteer, it would be $350 + $350 + $0 + $0 = $700.  If your team, as a whole, has not raised the required fundraising amount by the morning of the Ride, each team member whose personal donation amount (as reflected on their own personal page) is below their required minimum will need to donate the additional funds to reach $350. Our best advice: make sure your team does all of its fundraising before the Ride!
