How Far Would You Like to Pedal?

How far do you think you want to pedal on ride day? You can change your mind -- even right in the middle of the ride -- but telling us in advance how far you think you want to pedal will help us plan better for you.    

How Are You Getting to the Ride?

Getting the Route on Your GPS or Smartphone

About a week before the ride we will send you all the info on getting the route onto your GPS or smartphone for free. Of course we'll still have plenty of paper copies of the route available at the start lines.

Hey, this ride is a charity fundraiser for God's Love We Deliver. Instead of setting a big minimum fundraising goal, we kept it as low as we could. But if you can spare an extra donation, we'd sure appreciate it! Of course all of this goes to God's Love We Deliver.

Suggested Amounts

Welcome to the Department of Annoying Questions!

There's some important info that will make your day MUCH better and we want to be SURE you've read it. So hang in there and answer the next couple questions so we know we're good here.

Give Respect/Get Respect

We want the towns we ride through to welcome us back next year, and we want to keep each other safe on the road. That means no riding two-abreast when streets are narrow, passing too close, or otherwise acting like a jerk.


If any of our many marshals spot you yelling at drivers, pounding on car hoods, or otherwise acting disrespectfully to the locals (whether you think it's justified or not...) we will not hesitate for a moment to grab you by the ear (or any other appendage we can reach) and yank you out of the ride IMMEDIATELY. No post-ride transport, no post-ride meal, no S.A.G. service, no beer, no pie, NO REFUNDS.


When we get closer to ride day we send out emails with all the stuff you need to know -- where to show up, when, what to bring, any last-minute changes... The only problem is that we find that -- at best -- 70 percent of the riders actually read that stuff!

No problem-o! Everything you need to know is right here on the Quick Start section of our web site.

SO... raise your right hand and repeat after me:

"Being a smart and totally awesome person, I promise to either:

A) Read the emails when they get sent out (and make sure they're not in my spam filter).

B) Skip the emails but read the Quick Start guide.

C) Use my psychic powers to know what to do.

D) Not send an email to Glen at 1 a.m. on ride day marked URGENT -- WHAT TIME DO I SHOW UP? WHERE'S THE START LINE?"

The End Is Near

We welcome faster cyclists and slower cyclists.

We can't keep the rest stops or the finish line meal open forever, intriguing as that idea sounds. 

We give you PLENTY of time to get to each location, but we DO set closing times, which will be posted loud and clear on the route sheet we hand you on ride day.

Having said all of that, I always get furious emails after the ride: "I showed up at the third rest stop (two hours after the posted closing time) and there was no one there!"
