About the Event
When: Saturday, August 13, 2016
Where: Eagan Community Center, 1501 Central Parkway, Eagan, MN 55121
Note: The AttaBoyRide happens in conjunction with our sister event, the Breast Cancer Ride.
The Kinda-Annual AttaBoy Ride is a one day bike ride (with several mileage options) that raises money and awareness for local men's cancer service organizations. The Ride starts/stops at the Eagan Community Center in Eagan, MN. This marks the fourth year for the Ride and on Saturday, August 13, 2016 cyclists and volunteers will come together to do something incredible. Something that will change lives. Something YOU can be a part of! Download our brochure, flyer and donation form.
The Ride is fully supported and designed to allow Riders of all degrees of experience to participate. Multiple route options are available to choose from including 5, 10, 20 and 40 miles. Keep in mind, this is a ride, not a race. And we provide route support in case you can't finish the mileage or you have bike issues.
Each Adult Rider (18+) pays a registration fee and agrees to raise a minimum of $350 in donations. Sound like a challenge? That's just 10 friends at $35 each; easy peasy and for a good cause! Minors, under the age of 18, pay a registration fee but are not required to fundraise, although, any donations collected is appreciated. Keep in mind, minor Riders must have an adult Rider participate with them. The Adult Rider is required to pay the registration fee and meet the fundraising minimum. Children who will be in a burly/tagalong bike (meaning, connected to an adults bike) do not need to register or fundraise, however they will not receive any swag/shirt.
The Ride is open to all ages. The Ride is open to all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities. Please note that we are riding alongside city traffic so make sure to consider that when determining if your child is ready to do an event like this. Have small kids who can't ride? Put them in a burly or tagalong and bring them with!
Route loops offer flexibility. There are multiple route options available (specifics TBA soon) but the short route will be around 10 miles with the option to do up to 65 miles. You will not need to notify us which mileage you are doing...just decide and make it your day!
Designate YOUR money YOUR way. We put the fundraising power in our participants hands. Participants can select which beneficiaries they want to support from our list of approved local 501(c)3 organizations that benefit those affected by breast cancer. This allows you to select one that you are passionate about or all of them if you don't have a favorite beneficiary.See the list here.
