FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I've never done a ride like this before? How does it work?
It's easy. You show up, grab a manifest, figure out the best route, and start riding when we say "GO!". Make sure you've got a bag and a lock, because you're going to need to lock up to run into grocery stores.

What bike should I ride?
You can ride anything that is self propelled with wheels.  The ideal bike would be a mountain bike, hybrid, or commuter bike.  We'd love to see tandems, penny farthings, fixies, fat bikes, bone shakers, tall bikes and anything else you can think of.

How much does it cost to register?
It's free to register, but you'll need cash to buy food at the grocery stores. $10-$20 should suffice.

I can't be there, how can I help?
You can drop off any of the food items needed anytime during the week prior to the event.  You can also invite as many friends as possible to take part in the event.  

Can I register online?
Yes. Registration can be done online and it can also be done the day of the event.  Regardless of when you register, you will still need to sign a waiver the day of the event.  You can register online here: See Below

Can I run this event?
Yes. you definitely can.  If you're doing a team you may want to have at least one cyclist with lots of room for food on their bike.
