Below are listed some of the general rules for the ride.
- 30 cyclists per day is the maximum unless otherwise noted on the application.
- Survivors and Police Officers receive first consideration for days that fill up. If you are bumped from a day, you will be placed on a wait list. Those on the wait list will be notified by email if a spot becomes available.
- Each cyclist must pay a $50.00 registration fee. The fee covers a participant t-shirt, jersey, housing and most meals. The registration fee can be paid online in the Store.
- The Cops Cycling for Survivors jersey must be worn every day of participation. See the Merchandise page for more information on the Cops Cycling jersey.
- Helmets are required.
- Each cyclist is required to raise a minimum of $75.00 for every day or partial day they ride. No exceptions.
- This is a group ride, not a race. Everyone is expected to stay together and keep a reasonable pace (14-18 mph). If a participant cannot keep the pace or is cycling too far in front of the group, they will be asked to load up in the truck/escort vehicle.
- At least one hand must be kept on the handlebars at all times. It is the safest means of cycling in a large group.
- Cyclists must be at least 16 years of age to participate. Any cyclists under the age of 18 must have their application signed by a parent or guardian. The parent or guardian must accompany the cyclist as another participating cyclists or support volunteer each day they are registered to ride.
- If it is not thunderstorming or a significant downpour, we ride in the rain. Bring gear for inclement weather and lighting for your bike.
- Listen to as much music as you like, but only one earbud is allowed to be used while on the bike.
- The Cops Cycling for Survivors Foundation President or designee has the final say in all decisions on the ride.
- When on the ride, all participants and support personnel represent Cops Cycling for Survivors Foundation, Inc. If you break the rules of conduct, you may be asked to leave.
- All participants are responsible to arrange their own transportation to and from the day(s) they ride. Cops Cycling does not arrange transportation unless it is to a group dinner or survivor meeting
- Have fun and make memories while taking in the beautiful state of Indiana!
