Ride Cincinnati is a two-day weekend of cycling, entertainment and volunteerism. Putting together a full-service experience, Ride Cincinnati provides nutrition, hydration, first aid, bike maintenance and entertainment to ensure a safe, successful and fun weekend for all riders.
Each rider must pay a non-refundable registration fee that does not count toward his or her minimum fundraising commitment. The appropriate amount is charged to the rider’s credit card upon registration.
New for 2018! What better way to kick off Ride Cincinnati 18 than with live music and free food and beer? Riders and their guests are invited to the Opening Ceremony at Yeatman’s Cove on Saturday, June 9, from 4 to 8 p.m. to get pick-up rider packets and get pumped for Sunday’s ride.
Each rider may bring one guest. Additional guests may attend for $20 each, paid in advance or at the door.
Five route options are available to appeal to all levels of cycling strength:
You must be at least 14 years of age to ride in Ride Cincinnati. Riders who are 14 and 15 years old may register to ride the 8-mile, 26-mile, and 45-mile routes only. Riders who are 16 years and older may register for any of the routes. Parents or guardians will be required to execute the Rider agreement and waiver on behalf of the minor Rider. Under no circumstances may you ride with an infant or child attached to your bicycle and any other riding apparatus at any time during Ride Cincinnati.
Ride Cincinnati's scenic course begins in the southern corner of downtown Cincinnati at Yeatman's Cove in Sawyer Point. The route continues over the pedestrian-only Purple People Bridge and travels through several cities along Route 8 in Northern Kentucky. This road is not closed to traffic. Destination markers along the course guide riders to choose the length of their own personal ride.
The course returns riders to the Ride Cincinnati Celebration at Sawyer Point to enjoy free food and beverages, music and kids’ activities. The Ride Cincinnati Celebration for 8- to 63-mile riders will end at 1:30 p.m. Please plan your ride accordingly so you return in time to enjoy the celebration.
Riders who complete the 100-mile ride will finish at a special reserved celebration area with additional amenities open until 3 p.m. Please note, the 50-mile turnaround will close at 10:30 a.m.
No riding. No volunteering. Just fundraising. Becoming a virtual rider is a great way to join the Ride Cincinnati movement and do your part to help defeat cancer.
