Can I allow someone else to ride in my place on PaceDay?
No. Your registration as a rider in PaceDay is not transferable, even if you do not ride in PaceDay for any reason, including illness or injury that may limit or preclude your participation. You are not permitted to grant another person the right to ride in PaceDay in your place.
Can I cancel my registration?
No. When you register, you commit to raising money for innovative cancer research. PaceDay is simply a celebration of those efforts from the year.
What type of bike do I need?
Just about any bike will get you 25 or 50 miles. If you are riding 70 miles, you may consider a road bike, but one is not a necessity.
