Gravel Day, Pelotonia’s new gravel riding event, will be held on September 30, 2023.
The minimum age to ride or volunteer is 14; however, any age can participate in Pelotonia as a Challenger.
Yes! Riders can participate in both Ride Weekend and Gravel Day. Riders' fundraising commitment will increase based on the Ride Weekend route that they select. High Rollers ($5,000 fundraising minimum) will be able to participate in both events at no additional commitment increase.
Some more current road bikes (likely sold in the last five years) allow for more robust tires which is key for safety and the best experience during Gravel Day. The minimum tire width we would recommend is 35mm. Hardtail mountain bikes would also be a great option that would allow for better handling, more robust tires and a really fun experience.
Any registered Rider or Challenger must withdraw their registration by 11:59 PM EST on August 30, 2023, to be removed from their minimum fundraising commitment.
Challengers can withdraw registration by clicking “Edit Profile” at the top of your Pelotonia profile, then scrolling down to “Cancel Registration” and clicking the edit button.
Riders and Volunteers can withdraw by selecting "Edit" on your route or shift, unselecting the option you wish to withdraw from, and clicking "Cancel All". For more information on changing your commitment or to withdraw, please email us at [email protected]
. Remember, all participants have until Sunday, October 15, 2023, to reach their fundraising commitments.
