$15 Family Friendly Discount for Minors (children aged 6–17 years with a full paid adult). Riders under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult. If not parent/guardian, it is advisable to have informed consent for medical treatment. All paid minor riders receive same benefits as listed above.

Local Rider Discount

If you’re a cyclist who lives in Augusta, Rockingham, Rockbridge, Albemarle or Nelson Counties — and you have two hours (or more) to volunteer at the festival — we’ll give you a smoking discount: $25 for the Festival (a 70% discount!) Limited volunteer slots are available and fill up on a first-come, first-served basis. To take advantage of this offer, check the volunteer tasks at SIGNUPGENIUS.COM -- many of which are day and time-specific. (Examples: Help us setup or man the tables at registration Friday night; setup route signs on Sunday morning before the Middlebrook routes start, etc.). Then follow the instructions on that page for contacting the race organizers to get your registration discount code.

Special Note

ONLINE REGISTRATION for the 2018 Festival opens on May 1, 2018 and will remain open up to three days before the event (October 16), or when we hit 750 advance registrations (we cap this festival at 800 participants, including walk-ins).  Mail-in registration closes 10 days before the event on October 9, as the speed of the mail may not ensure it gets to us in time. After Tuesday, October 16, you may register at the door. Please remember that registrations made after September 19 incur an additional $10 late fee. Walk-in late fee (registering on-site), add $25. 

CANCELLATION POLICY: All cancellations postmarked by September 30 will be refunded minus a $25 processing fee. SORRY: No refunds for any reason after September 30, including personal or family medical issues.
