It's a Ride, not a race!
The Red Ribbon Ride is a four day endurance cycling event. There are no prizes for being first in Camp or crossing the finish line. The real prize is being of service to others by going above and beyond, raising vital funds and riding your bicycle for 2 days.
Training for the Ride is important. Each day has it's own challenges and preparing your body by training first will help you feel better on your bicycle over the entire four days. There are many things to consider while you prepare; Safety, Training, Nutrition & Hydration, Buying the right bicycle, Bicycle Maintenance, and Gear.
We are here to help you! Please join us for our training rides, contact the Ride Office for assistance in developing the right training plan for you and to be connected with our Training Ride Leaders.
