Registration: $25 Per Person      Campaign Minimum: $75

You must be 12 years old by June 6th to ride this route. 12 to 17-year-olds need a parent or guardian to accompany them. This route will be all road riding so we’re taking extra precautions. Please read all requirements before you register.

Requirements & Suggestions

  • Be able to go 12 MPH
  • Proper bicycle helmet that fits you
  • Road Bike (good idea to get it fitted and tuned up)
  • Good tires, brake system and frame
  • Lights on front and back (reflectors also a great idea)
  • Extra Tube with you and if you can change it, a tool
  • Weather appropriate jacket, gloves, bike riding appropriate clothing, and shoes (suggested)
  • Rain Gear (highly suggested)
  • Wear Running For Justice bright shirt as last layer for safety
  • We will have one break with water and snacks; you are free to stop on your own anytime
  • Another person to team up with (not required but way safer)
  • Small backpack or something to carry water and a snack
  • Waiver will be sent via e-mail or at event, to be signed and returned; no riding without us having this

We’ll give you water before starting and have it at our 1 break stop. We will have a few person road team that provides security, safety and snacks.

When we get back to Big Lake Township Lion’s Park, we plan to have space for bicyclists to wind down and get mini massages and snacks.

From 5:00-7:00 P.M. we will have our “End of the Road Celebration.” Invite family, friends and those who donated to your Bike-A-Thon Campaign for complimentary light supper & speakers.

Making a Campaign

Once you have registered, wait a few minutes to be directed to making a campaign, your last step in a 2 step process. This is where your friends and family will be able to make donations.
We ask you to make a Campaign goal of at least $75. Once you submitted a campaign, you’ll be emailed a link to give to family, friends, and coworkers. Encourage them to give towards your cycling campaign.
We’re a non-profit and donations you make or are given to your campaign, are deductible; not registration. We prefer donations to be given online but if you get a check or cash and they want a deduction that’s your responsibility to write that information down and e-mail to us. advocate@runningforjustice.org
