Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to ride?
Riders should wear a secure helmet and plan to carry everything that they need with them on the ride. There will be rest stops with snacks and refreshments throughout the rides as well as the 5K.
Will there be support for riders?
There will be rest stops with water and snacks. Volunteers will staff each of these rest stops. Support and Gear (SAG) vehicles will also be driving the bike routes.
What is the pace of the ride?
To be fair to the rest stop volunteers and to ensure you are back in time for all the post-ride festivities, you may be asked to switch routes if you do not hit certain mile markers by certain times.
How do I raise money as a rider?
Because fundraising is not required for this ride, your registration fee does not go toward fundraising goals. However, when you register, you will automatically have a fundraising page started for you.
If I don't ride, Can I still help?
There are many sponsorship opportunities and you may also volunteer the day of the ride. To volunteer, contact Shelby at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the House at 573-443-7666. You could also support a participant through their fundraising page or start a fundraising page of your own!
Will I need to bring food?
Can I get a refund?
The ride will go on rain or shine! Because this is a fundraising event and Ronald McDonald House depends on the income to provide services, no refunds will be given.
