Well-marked signs at each turn and a communication system keeping track of all riders assures that everyone will enjoy a safe and fun ride.              
Forming a team is another way to support the event. Teams can be of any number and any affiliation, and the team raising the most money is treated to a wonderful dinner held in their honor a few weeks after the RIDE.              
We are able to keep registration costs down because of enthusiastic support for this event:                    
Adult registration is $55 ($65 after September 2) Youth registration (14-18) is $25 ($30 after September 2)   Children under 13 have no registration fee
