Team Captains

  • Organize a team of three to five bikes (typically three to five riders, but can be more if tandems are included).
  • Choose a catchy team name. This is often the most contentious step.
  • Design a route. Tradtionally a point-to-point route is preferred. Loops are allowed, but out-and-backs are not.
  • Complete and submit the team questionnaire with the team name, roster, RWGPS route via the Team Captain Questionnaire Form. This form MUST be submitted no later than Friday, July 22nd.
No team entries will be accepted after Friday, July 22nd.

Riders can park at Stefanie’s house around the corner from Friendly Grove Park if you want to leave a car near the finish up to a few days before, or if you're doing a loop. Email Stefanie (address below) for directions and to reserve a space.

Team Riders (Including Captains)

  • Register via the usual process on this page – sign the wavier, pay the $20 rider fee, etc.
