- SORRY, NO REFUNDS. You are generously supporting PARCA services and programs with your donation.
- Please choose wisely when selecting your ride.
- The “Century From Hell” has 9251′ elevation gain, which is mostly concentrated within a 20-mile stretch. We recommend this ride for those who are aiming to complete the course in 10.5 hours or less, barring extreme weather conditions, because SAG patrols make their final rounds and aid stations close at 5 PM. We want to make sure you enjoy the benefit of full support throughout your ride and have the most successful, enjoyable experience possible!
- Switching from one type of event to another or one distance to another after you’ve registered is permitted under the following conditions:
- If you register for the Metric Century or 40-Mile and later decide that you’d rather participate in a longer event, you can pay to upgrade at the Registration Desk on the day of the event (or during Early Packet Pick-up at one of the Sports Basement locations). You’ll be charged only for the difference in price between the events.
- If you decide to switch to an event that’s the same or a lower fee, you’re welcome to do so. We just ask that you please let the volunteers know of your change in plans when you check in, so that we can ensure that we have ride support resources allocated appropriately.
