Participants have a choice of three routes: 15 miles, 30 miles, and 52 miles. Breakfast will be served during registration/check-in; riders may also enjoy refreshments at rest stops along the route. A post-ride celebration held on the Lafayette Village Green will include lunch, live music, and raffle prizes.

The 52-mile ride will begin at 8 a.m., with registration opening at 7 a.m.; the 30-mile ride will begin at 9 a.m., with registration opening at 8 a.m.; and the 15-mile ride begins at 9:30 a.m., with registration opening at 8:30 a.m. Participants under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants who raise $250 or more will qualify for a customized Giordana Vero Pro Short Sleeve Jersey.
