10th Annual Rwanda Ride:
10th Annual Rwanda Ride: Saturday April 30, 2016
Registration Opens December 15th, 2015
50 mile option starts at 7:00am (check-in at 6:30am)*
25 mile option starts at 8:00am (check-in at 7:30am)*
10 mile option starts at 10:00am (check-in at 9:30am)*
*FastTrack check-in on Friday April 29 from 11am to 6pm at Rock N Road Cyclery in Mission Viejo. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at FastTrack as well.
*The 50 Mile Route is our signature event. You’re in for a total of 49.2 miles and 5560 feet of climbing. Typical 5-7 hours ride time, best to train for this one!
Aid Station and Rider Cut-Off Plan
(This information applies to both 25 and 50 milers): For rider safety, and to ensure all riders and volunteers arrive back at the course start in time for our post-ride party and raffle, rider cut-off times will be enforced.
**25 Mile route actual mileage is 27.5, with 2756 feet of climbing. Typical 3-4 hours ride time, suitable for strong intermediate riders and above.
Our 10 mile route option is a great way for novice or younger riders to join the fun. We’ll start and finish at the same place, but we’ll take you on a totally different (shorter) route than the 25/50. Yes, there will be hills, rocks and climbing (hard to avoid in mountain biking). But we guarantee you’ll have a blast. Some of the trails on this route include Edison Riding & Hiking Trail, Aliso Creek Bikeway, Serrano Road, Line Shack, and Coyote Brush Road. We’ll be throwing in a few games along the way too.
Why… & other fun details
To raise funds and build awareness for Team Africa Rising and World Bicycle Relief.*
Alternate Rain Date
It hasn’t rained on our party yet. But the weather has been kind of unpredictable this year. So not wanting to take any chances, we have an alternate “rain date” of Saturday May 7 2016 – to be used ONLY if the park trails are closed on our scheduled date. We’ll keep you posted as the date gets near.
After the ride join us for our famous post-ride PARTY. We’ll have a HUGE raffle with tons of cool prizes donated by our generous sponsors. Plus, we’ll have massage therapists, games, bike shop expo, cold drinks and hot music. Bring your friends and family to share in the fun!
