REGISTRATION

 

How do I register?

For 2021, we have introduced Contactless Registration.  This means you can ONLY register online.

 

What is the registration fee and what does it include?

The fee for Riders is $60 and for Passengers $30.  Registering for the Ride for SickKids event includes a RFSK t-shirt and mask.  You will also receive a prepackaged lunch from Shoeless Joes at the end of the Ride.

 

What is new for 2021?

All participants are now required to register online.  Riders will now have the opportunity to choose their departure time.  This is on a first-come-first-serve basis.  Each timeslot will be assigned a colour-coded wristband which must be visible on ride day. RFSK crew will use this as confirmation of registration upon arrival, this ensures minimal physical contact.

 

How will I receive my t-shirt and wristband?

All registrants will have a Registration Package mailed to the address provided upon registration.  This will include, but is not limited to, a RFSK t-shirt, mask and an entry wristband.

 

Do all passengers/guests have to register?

All passengers must register and sign a waiver form.  Unfortunately, we cannot welcome guests for the 2021 Ride.

 

What if I miss pre-registration & want to register the day of the ride?

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate in person registration for the 2021 Ride.
