What happens if it rains?
We ride rain or shine. In the event of lightning or other dangerous conditions, we will delay the event until conditions improve.
What if I am unable to ride?
All Bike MS registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. If you do not ride (if your packet is not picked up), the fundraising minimum is not required – but is appreciated.
Can children participate?
In Colorado, cyclists must be 12 years old or older by June 29, 2013; in Wyoming cyclists must be 16 years old or older by August 17, 2013 (parents must ride with their child at all times). No child carriers or Burley-type trailers are allowed. All cyclists under the age of 18 must provide a notarized waiver. Please contact us to request a waiver.
Do I have to wear a helmet?
YES! For your own safety, helmets are required at all Bike MS cycling events and conditioning rides. You will be removed from the route if you are not wearing a helmet.
Can family and friends join me for the weekend?
Family and friends are always welcome at our start and finish locations, however not on the route! Please encourage your friends and family to meet you at the finish line, or to volunteer for the event. Learn more.
Can I bring a friend with me who didn't pre-register?
Each year Bike MS, Colorado's Ride reaches its registration limit before the event. We will allow walk-ups for the one-day Fort Collins Loop ride on June 29.
Can I have someone follow me in case I don't make it?
We prohibit personal vehicles on the route and in or around rest stops. We provide plenty of SAG vehicles to transport any cyclists in need.
