By The Pelotonia Team|July 27, 2021

Are you ready for Ride Weekend?! It’s been two years since the community has come together for a Ride and we can't wait to see you out on the routes this year.
If you are participating in Pelotonia as a Rider, below are our top five tips to prepare you for the weekend:
  1. Keep an eye on your mailbox - credentials are being mailed to your home address!
    • This will include your bike tag, wristband, and luggage tag. Information on how these will be used is available here.
  2. Get ready for a Pelotonia party! Opening Ceremony this year will be held at Field, the new home of the Columbus Crew, from 6:00-8:00pm EDT.
    • All registered Riders will receive 2 free tickets. Learn more about the event here.
  3. Familiarize yourself with the Event Handbook - this guide is jam-packed with important information.
    • Parking, schedules, safety, and more! Give it a read here.
  4. Make a Ride Week fundraising plan! Trust us - this is an amazing week to amplify your fundraising efforts.
  5. Take it all in at the Finish Line!
    • Your fellow members of the Greatest Team Ever will be there as you cross the Finish Line to celebrate all you've accomplished. You'll also receive your Rider swag bag. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better - there will also be food and drinks! You and a guest each receive a free meal voucher.
