When will a final decision be made about whether we will transition the event to entirely virtual like 2020?
We are proceeding with the TDS event happening as an actual, supported ride with some modifications on July 17th, 2021. We remain realistic that there are still unknowns about COVID 19 and its impact on the world and our event. We will continue to stay on top of all developments in regards to COVID 19; Federal, State and local mandates and are developing a strong COVID mitigation plan to ensure a clean, safe and secure environment. We are committed to keep all of you informed throughout the process and will strive to know by early May, 2021 whether TDS will be NOT able to happen.
Will there be refunds for the event for any reason?
Refunds will be honored per the following schedule:
• 100% refund if requested before March 1, 2021
• 50% refund if requested before April 1, 2021
• 25% refund if requested before May 1st, 2021
After May 1st there will be no refunds.
All refunds must be requested by emailing email@example.com and will not include a 3.5% credit card processing fee.
When will the bike drawing occur and how do I get a ticket?
Every registered rider is automatically entered to win! You can increase your chances by making a $50 donation. For each $50 donation we will add your name in. Example, donate $100 and your name is added in twice. We will do the Bike Drawing between July 17th and July 19th! The winners will be contacted directly and be posted on our website.
How will the aid stations be managed?
Aid stations will be managed in accordance with the Federal, State and local guidelines and restrictions in place at the time of the event. Please check the website closer to the event for updates under the aid station section.
Will there be food at the aid stations?
Yes, however the choices will be different than in years past, but there will be plenty to choose from. Please stay tuned to the website for updates closer to the event.
What type of foods and hydration products will be available?
How will the start work?
We are not hosting a formal, State Patrol roll out as in years past. Rather, we ask you “leave from where you live” or are staying. We will have State Patrol stationed at critical intersections to allow for safe passage along the route.
Why are there different roll out times and do I have to leave then?
To encourage a more spread out wave of riders for safety and management of large groups we will have suggested roll out times for each ride.
What will the finish line look like?
We are planning for a festive and attractive finish area and will plan to add in features as allowed. For sure there will be music, grab and go food, rider SWAG and a photo booth!
How do I get my ride credentials and SWAG?
RIde credentials will be sent via email twice before the event, once two weeks out and again one week out from the event. Please print a copy to carry with you or if you are confident in your phone’s battery you may carry an electronic version. Credentials will include your name, ride registered for, emergency contact information and food order.
What is this year’s SWAG?
How will lunch work?
