Q. How far is the tour de Road America?
A. Each lap is 4.0 miles. There is a turn off point about mid-way through the lap, so you can go just about any distance that is a multiple of 2. You can ride until our safety marshalls indicate that it's getting too dark to safely continue the lap.
Q. Do I need a "road bike"?
A. The bike ride is open to all kinds of bikes. We have seen all of the following kinds of bikes being used: road, beach cruisers, hybrid, bmx, mountain, downhill, unicycle (no, we are not kidding!), tandem, tandems with burleys, and just about anything else with pedals, wheels and no motor!
Q. Why do I need admission to Road America?
A. Road America provides the track and its services free of charge to the tour de Road America - BIKE RIDE TO FIGHT CANCER. If you would like to spend the day at the track, you can get a Friday admission to Road America good for the entire day. You can watch the racing, go to the Family Fun Zone, check out karting at the Briggs & Stratton Motorplex and get an up close view of the teams' operations in the paddock. We thank Road America for generously allowing us use of the race track and facilities! Note that there are many specials available, some for free Friday admission. And kids under 12 are free.
Q. What if it rains?
A. We ride rain or shine, provided that the race track and weather conditions are safe (no severe weather). We will do our best to work with track personnel to reschedule in the event of severe weather, but we cannot guarantee that the track and volunteers will be available. Ride fees and dontations are non-refundable.
