Costs & Registration

Eventbrite-logoOnline Registration is currently CLOSED. Registering online through our Eventbrite page opens May 1, 2018. It is the fastest and easiest way to sign up for the 2018 Fall Foliage Festival. (Note: If you'd prefer to download a registration form and mail it in with a check, please find the PDF form here.) To keep our event manageable and friendly, we cap this festival at 800 participants (including walk-ins) and close online registration once we reach 750 pregistrations.

$90 per adult (18 and older). This includes:

$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.

$35 per non-riding adult (OPTIONAL). Includes Long sleeve T-shirt, all meals (lunch Saturday and Brunch Sunday) and discounts to attractions. (You'll find that your Festival wristband opens all sorts of doors!)

Children 5 and Under are Free (No T-shirt; but yes on food and discounts)

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 SIGNUP.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 2017 Festival is OPEN and will remain open up to three days before the event (October 17), or when we hit 750 advance registrations (we cap this festival at 800 participants, including walk-ins).  Mail-in registration/brochure closes 10 days before the event on October 10, as the speed of the mail may not ensure it gets to us in time. After Tuesday, October 17, you may register at the door. Please remember that registrations made after September 30 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.
