Do I need to train to participate in The Inside Ride?
You don’t need to train specifically to participate in The Inside Ride. However, we do recommend you have a reasonable expectation that cycling for 10 minutes will raise your heart rate a little. Use the first two minutes as a warm up then ride at a pace that is comfortable for you. This doesn’t have to be an athletic competition. The event is a celebration of your team’s accomplishments to volunteer, fundraise, donate, and participate. Pace yourself to have fun!
What should I wear to participate in The Inside Ride?
Riders should wear comfortable clothing that allows for movement. We recommend you wear shorts and t-shirts underneath your costumes. Do not wear multiple layers of clothing or heavy costumes while riding.
What are the bikes and the pedals like?
The bikes are modern, professionally maintained hybrid bikes. They are mounted on stationary trainers set up on mats to eliminate drift or vibration. Your bike volunteer or Inside Ride Crew Leader will help you to adjust the seat height, and work the odometer. You’re in good hands, don’t worry!
I finished my turn on the bike, what do I do now?
Congratulations! Once you get feeling back in your legs it’s time to cheer on your teammates after they cheered you on so enthusiastically.
