This year online registration has been extended until 8:00 am on the day of the ride to help accommodate last minute registration for people who would still like to save $5. As always, you can also register in person at the event between 9:00 am-9:45 am for $40.

Please spread the word and bring your friends!

Every registration helps out the Fish-Abled Foundation. If you know someone who would like to support the Fish-Abled Foundation but is unable to ride please let them know that there are options to donate directly to the Fish-Abled Foundation on Active.com or they can sponsor a ride.

This 20-mile bicycle ride is a group ride.

The pack leaves from Kegel Harley-Davidson at 7125 Harrison Avenue in Rockford, heading north on Perryville Road and turning back south after looping the Swanson Road roundabout.

There will be various rest stops along the way, including some surprise goodies from local businesses (TO BE ANNOUNCED)! A portion of the proceeds will be donated The Fish-Abled Foundation.

An after party will be at Jax Pub at 4160 North Perryville Road. Pizza will be provided with the purchase of a beverage. Details at the pub.

We have three ways for you to be involved:

1. Ride: If you want to ride, you can register online at Active.com. Early registration is $35. Registration the day of the ride is $40.

2. Give: If you want to give, donate on April 29 at the start/ finish line at Kegel Harley-Davidson (7125 Harrison Avenue in Rockford) from 9 a.m until the cyclists return. Checks only. Make checks payable to The Fish-Abled Foundation. All donations are tax deductible. Representatives from The Fish-Abled Foundation will also be on site.

3. Sponsor a Team Fur Bandit rider with a donation of $35. You’ll fill out a registration form and check the sponsor box. You can sponsor a team member or a local cyclist that otherwise couldn’t afford to ride. Cheer cyclists on as they depart and keep that warm and fuzzy feeling in return.
