8 days and Counting…

Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony will kick off Ride Weekend on Friday (08.06.21) at 6:00pm EDT at Lower.com Field, the new home of the Columbus Crew.  Encourage your Peloton members to join us for an evening filled with impact, entertainment, and most of all, community.  It’s been two years since the community has come together for a Ride Weekend and we look forward to seeing you at this legendary event!


Earlier this week, an email containing tickets and parking details was sent to all registered Riders, and participants that have raised $1,250 or more.  Here is a helpful video to guide you through accessing your tickets.  Those wishing to purchase additional tickets may do that on-site at Lower.com Field on Friday, August 6.


Rider Credentials

Riders who registered before 7.25.2021 will receive their Rider credential in the mail before the end of this week.  Riders who register after this date will receive an email detailing where/when they can pick up their credential.  If you have a made a change to your route since receiving your credentials, stop by the admin tent at Opening Ceremony and the Pelotonia team will update your credential!


What to Expect at Ride Weekend!

Check out our ‘What to Expect During Ride Weekend’ series for both Riders and Volunteers! Some important change to note below.

  • Plan to bring your bike with you to the start of your ride on Saturday or Sunday! Overnight bike corrals will only be provided on Saturday night of Ride Weekend.
  • Finish line celebrations will take place at the end of each route! Each Rider will receive two meal tickets and their Rider gift after they have finished riding.
  • Two-day Riders will not be staying in Gambier overnight on Saturday. Instead, Riders can rest up at home and come to New Albany refreshed on Sunday.


Ride Weekend Resources to Review


With more than three months until the fundraising deadline, there is still so much more impact to be created this year. Thank you for all of your continued work this year!
