How much is registration and what's included?
Registration is only $25 per person ($30 day of) - there is no cost to form a team.

Children on tricycles and with training wheels can participate in the Kids Fun Ride at no charge. Jerseys are available for $75, or are free for individuals who meet the fundraising minimum to receive the jersey as a gift. To join a team, simply select your team name from the dropdown menu on the registration page.

What is everydayhero?
Everydayhero is a peer-to-peer fundraising tool for you to fundraise on behalf of Tammy Lynn Center and your participation in this event. It's completely free for you to participate and very easy to set up and get started. In fact, after you register your confirmation email will include a link to setup your personal everydayhero fundraising page where all you have to do is make a password, add a picture and set a fundraising goal. Let us know if you have questions; we'd love to have you as one of Tammy Lynn Center's everydayheros.
What's the deal with the half-mile loop?
Rock 'n Ride Raleigh is a mix between a relay fundraiser and a criterium (loop) race. During a 8-hour period, bikers will be getting on and off the half-mile course at their leisure. The goal is to complete as many laps as possible (safely, comfortably and while having fun) as an individual or a team. Live music will be taking place throughout the day, so you'll have something to jam out to as you pass by. Check back for updated live entertainment lineup!
Do I have to be on the course for 8 hours?
No, you do not have to be on the course for 8 hours - your riding time frame is completely up to you! We'll officially start letting bikers on the course at 10:00 a.m. and let no more bikers pass over the tracker after 6:00 p.m. However, you can join us at any time you like. Check-in will take place throughout the day, so feel free to come at a time that works best for you and your friends and family. Additionally, you can get on and off the course at your leisure. If you want to complete 10 laps in the morning, take a break and enjoy a snack, then ride 10 more laps and take a break and enjoy the music with friends and family - you can do just that! Stay for 30 minutes or all 8 hours, it's up to you!
What criteria are required for signing up?
Cyclists of all skill levels are welcome! It is BYOB (bring your own bike), and all bikes must be road-worthy. The only riders who won't be allowed on the course will be those little ones on three wheels or with training wheels - we'll have a special Kids Fun Ride taking place throughout the day that they can participate in.
What support will be available?
