Pre-Ride Events

We have many events throughout the year where we need help with various jobs. Our volunteers make all our events special and a success. 

Winter Expo

Our Winter Expo works in partnership with several of our Community Partners and is a ton of fun. The Winter Expo is a combination of different vendors who offer discounts and support to Red Ribbon Ride Participants and a 2 hour Winter Spin Class to kick off the winter training season. 

Red Ribbon Ride Launch Party

The Red Ribbon Ride Launch Party is a celebration for all those who are signed up for the Ride, thinking of doing the Ride and more. It's an open event to all who want to learn more about the Red Ribbon Ride and the community.  

Training Ride Kick Off

Training Ride Kick Off is the launch of the official training season for the Red Ribbon Ride. Our Training Ride Leaders will follow with rides every week after to help prepare for the event in July. Training Ride Kick Off is an open event to all. 

Day on the Ride

Day on the Ride is a one day bike ride exactly like one of the day's on the actual Ride. It is fully supported and offers everyone who is training or thinking of doing the Ride the opportunity to see if they are ready.  This is a great event to volunteer for.

Thank You Party

After the Ride we want to be sure to share our appreciation with everyone who participated. Our Thank You Party is a great event bringing the community back together to celebrate the success of the Ride. All are welcome!
