Lunch is available for $10.00 and additional donations are, of course, welcome. Admission to the tent for the speakers and band is free.

Day-of-event Registration

Individual riders may register on the day of the ride at the starting location in Ware. The registration fee on the day of the event is $30/rider and includes lunch. A t-shirt may be offered pending ability. There’s no way to know your size or plan for order quantities if you do not pre-register.


Each rider may have one passenger without an additional registration fee. We ask that each registrant provide basic information about that passenger at registration. A t-shirt for your passenger is not provided with the registration fee. Your passenger may either purchase a t-shirt at the event (pending availability) or order a t-shirt.

Rider Groups

If you would like to establish a “Rider Group”, you can indicate this on the registration form. A Rider Group can have no fewer than two riders. Choose a name for your group. Your group may also ride in honor of someone. Additionally, you can indicate if you’re planning on fundraising for your Rider Group. This is a great way to raise additional money for the Rally by telling your friends and family the name of your group and your fundraising goal.

Rain Date
