Do I have to raise Money to ride? Nope, Just pay your registration fee, but if you wanna get a sure spot on the Heaven Line...
I want to Fundraise. How Can I start my own fundraising page?
You can start your own fundraising page by clicking here --
When Can I turn in funds I raised? Mail it in at our registration by Mail Address or bring it on the day of our ride.
When Can I expect to Finish? Depends how fast you ride, silly. Most riders average 8-10 mph. Fastest are 15mph
I have a friend riding a longer route, will we be riding together?: Every route is a circle within a circle, which means that all ride routes will ride together to the first mansion and after that the routes split. The first split comes at around mile number 8. The next one happens at around mile 15. All riders begin and end at the same place. It may be a long wait, but you will reunite with other routes.
