Orientations are the best way to learn more about The Ride and meet fellow Riders as well. It’s also where you will pick up your free Ride T-shirt. 

08_orientation_Handbrake_CircleFrameWhether you are an experienced Rider or just a weekend warrior, an Orientation is a worthwhile experience. Our Ride Guides will be there to help you develop a solid training and fundraising plan that fits with your schedule. You'll find out where the money you raise goes and what kind of important work is funded by The Ride. You’ll meet other participants and have an opportunity to ask questions. While at the Orientation, we will also show a video that provides an excellent overview of what you’ll experience.

If you cannot attend an Orientation but have registered, you can call  for other ways to obtain your T-shirt. Please feel free to bring friends and family to the Orientation. They are absolutely welcome!

We can use your help!

We are always on the lookout for new locations. If you know of a location - a school, a meeting hall, or any large room that can hold 30-50 people - and its use can be donated for limited use, please email .

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Orientation!
