Each rider will pay a $400 entry deposit.
This deposit covers your hotel bed for 5 nights, as well as some trailside drinks and snacks (but no lunches,
dinners or other meals included). The deposit also pays towards your event t-shirts, sweatshirt, stickers, and
an event memento.
You will be required to have your own "chase" vehicle for safety, and "bail out" purposes.
This "chase" vehicle will follow the main Chase, on public roads and highways. Meeting the group
throughout the day at key predetermined locations. This will be a way, if needed to; bail out due to fatigue,
transported to medical aid, carry overnight gear and personal items...etc. You are responsible 100% for that
vehicles expenses. You may carpool, or join another chase if you can't find your own support. To do so, join
the 'forum' and ask others who have acquired chase support prior to the event.
These chase vehicles, can be combined by riders to save money on chase costs. Riders should; Pair up,
triple up, or even more with other riders to share combined costs of chase vehicle fuel and drivers room/bed
charges. Be sure to not overload your chase vehicle. Always allow enough room for ALL bikes included with
that chase support to be loaded at any given time.
FYI: The Cancer Ride event's main chase is paid out of pocket by Johnny and/or Alan. You are not paying
towards their chase, or the main chase with your overall ride deposit. The main chase will also be putting out
cold drinks and snacks at each major stop for the riders to enjoy - and yes, they except tips for the cost of
those snacks/drinks and their efforts. Payable at the end of each day or the ride itself if you so desire.
You still will have costs associated with, but not limited to; Your support vehicle fuel, supporting your chase
driver, any meals, bike preparation before the ride, personal refreshments/drinks/meals...etc
The deposit does also pay toward the sweep riders, event stickers and t-shirts/sweatshirts and all other
hidden logistics costs. Any amount over those payouts, goes to the event/donation amount and overall
contribution that we are supporting during our ride.
(your deposit does not pay towards Johnny or Alan's costs to ride the event. They pay out of their own pocket)
Once your deposit is received, an email with a pre-ride check-list and other important ride information will be
sent to you. If you have any questions about the ride, or how to become one of the riders... please use the
contact us page. We look forward to hearing from you!!
Your more than welcome to bring the family, friends or other and have them either chase for you, or meet you
at our destination. As always, the more the merrier being we'll have a Cancer-Ride For Life dinner one of the
nights at our destination, and will conduct a raffle for the prizes allocated. Of course, you are responsible for
your own dinner costs.
Any questions, let us know!
