EXTRAS AND ADD-ONS

Camping is an add-on cost at EventBrite Registration. Click here for more details on Camping

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: just $35 for the two-day Festival! 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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

For riders 17 and under: $25 Family-friendly Price 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 for full-price adults. Sorry, there is no “both spouses are riding” discount for this festival.

Spouses who are non-riders but wish to share in the Festival meals (and get a T-shirt)  can register for $35. NOTE: This is not required. Many spouses come to town and sightsee or hike on their own and have no interest in attending the Bike Festival. That’s fine and we don’t require them to pay.

Children 5 and Under are Free (No T-shirt; but yes on meals and snacks). All children — whether riding on their own bike or in a bike seat or tow-behind trailer — must wear bicycle helmets.

No. Sorry. A majority of the per rider costs (insurance, printing, T-shirt, etc.) are applicable to either or both days. Plus, the myriad charitable groups who share in the proceeds from our Festival appreciate every dollar we can donate to them.

Yes. Click here to download the Mail-in Order form. And for ease of tracking and check-in at Festival Registration, we ask that you please register on the highly-secure Eventbrite website, but simply select the “pay by check” option under payments.

CANCELLATION POLICY: All cancellation requests 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.
