Is rider registration limited?

Yes. 2021 registration is capped at 85 full-time riders or 90 total riders, whichever comes first. Registration will close at that time. If we reach that level before the scheduled registration closure date (June 25), we will establish a waiting list. As registered riders let us know that they are unable to participate, we will move people from the waiting list to the active team. Once a rider is moved to the active team, full fundraising responsibilities and expectations will be required by the scheduled deadlines, even though such riders may have a shorter period of time to complete their fundraising. We apologize for this possible inconvenience, but we must maintain our road safety standards in terms of support vehicle to rider ratios, and we must operate within the accommodations available to us on a Tour that is largely hosted in smaller cities or rural locations with limited facilities.

What are the deadlines?

Registration deadline: June 25

Voler jersey order due: June 28

Fundraising money completion date: August 16

Covid Vaccination Card emailed deadline: August 16

 

What if my plans change and I can’t participate?

Notify TREE Fund immediately. Your registration fee and all donations to your campaign are non-refundable.

 

Do I need to have a Covid-19 vaccination to participate?

Yes, for 2021, we are requiring all riders to send in proof of vaccination for Covid-19.
