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, send our festival director an email and you’ll get a reply with a discount code as well as access to the list of volunteer tasks, 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.)

Special Note

ONLINE REGISTRATION for the 2016 is now open and will remain open up to three days before the event (October 11).  (Mail in registration/brochure closes 10 days before the event as the speed of the mail may not ensure it gets to us in time.) After Thursday, October 13, 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.
