Q. How do I register for the Ride for the Cure?
A. Online registration is quick and easy! Click here to register online. Registration for the Ride for the Cure will close on Thursday, September 13th at 5:00pm. Fundraising commitment of at least $360 (the average cost of two mammograms in Chicago) must be met in order to participate on Ride day (or you may fill out the delayed self-donation form). Credit cards will be accepted on Ride day. Note: Registrations are non-transferable and non-refundable. Each rider must pick up his/her own registration packet at the Komen Tent on Ride Day. Please bring a photo ID.
Q. Once I have registered, can I change my Ride distance?
A. Yes, Riders may choose to change their Ride distance but must notify the registration tent prior to leaving on the route. Example: I signed up for the 25 mile, but after training, I have decided I can ride 62 miles. This is wonderful! We would be happy to move you to the 62 mile Ride!
Q. How can I get started with fundraising?
A. Visit your Participant Center to utilize your online fundraising tools.
Q. Can I mail in a donation rather than give online?
A. Yes, if you prefer to give by check, please mail it to:

Q. What if I haven't raised $360 by Ride Day?
A. If you haven't raised the minimum fundraising of $360 in donations by Ride day, you have two options in order to participate in the event: instant self-donation or delayed self-donation. The instant self-donation is a donation that you make to your own fundraising account, which posts immediately. For a delayed self-donation, you give us a credit card number to secure coverage of the donation balance, but you have until Friday, September 28, 2018, to fulfill your fundraising commitment. This means that you can continue to accept donations until September 28. If by that date you have still not reached your commitment of $360 any outstanding balance will automatically be charged to your credit card. If you have reached donation goal, your card will NOT be charged. Please note that any mailed donations must be received ON OR BEFORE September 28, 2018, to be credited to your account. Please allow proper time for mailing and processing.
Q. What happens in the case of inclement weather?
A. The Ride for the Cure® has been scheduled during a time when we hope weather conditions will be favorable, but in the event of inclement weather, the tour will Ride on! Come prepared for all types of weather, including rain and hail. Bring inclement weather gear, including full-finger gloves and shoe covers.
