FAQs

Didn't get your Q A'd below? Ask away. wityouphilly@gmail.com 

How do I register?

Registration is open via RunSignUp.com. Note that while registration is free, each rider is required to raise a minimum of $100 in order to participate. Not into fundraising? Make a tax-deductible donation to your page! Every rider receives a free ticket to the Wit You Rally the night before (a $50 value). 

OK, I've registered. Now what?

You will receive an email from RunSignUp with instructions on how to set up your Fundraising page. Be sure to tell your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors about the bada$$ event you are doing and how they can help!

What bike should I bring?

Virtually any road bike will work, but be prepared to spend all day in the saddle. This route is 100% pavement, so leave your gravel rigs and mountain bikes at home and go skinny and light. 

What else should I bring?

While aid stations and self-service stops are every 10-20 miles (bring a credit card/cash for some tasty treats along the way!), we recommend always carrying at least two bottles of water, your favorite energy foods throughout the day, and everything you would need to fix your own flats/mechanicals on course. We'll try to help but ultimately you are responsible for your equipment! As the course is open roads, with car (and horse) traffic, you must abide by the rules and laws of the road and front/tail lights are recommended. 

Will the course be marked?

The course will be marked as best we can but a GPS device is the best navigation method. We do not recommend relying solely on road markings to arrive at the finish and will provide cue sheets. As we are venturing into quieter parts of the state, there is no guarantee that you will have cell service for the entirety of the ride, so if you are using your cell phone as a navigation device make sure you have downloaded the course and set your phone to Airplane mode.

How do I check in?

We prefer that all riders check in at the Rally on Friday, September 22. Attendance is free for all riders. If you cannot make the Rally, please arrive early on the day of the ride. We also ask that you check in with staff at each of the aid stations. 

What time is the ride?

Riders are encouraged to start between 6 and 8am on Saturday for the 100 mile, and 9 and 10am for the 50 mile, depending on your expected time on course. Staff will be at the Finish until approximately 7pm. If you plan to finish in the dark, don't forget lights!

How do I get home?

Our transportation sponsor Gentle Giant Moving (www.gentlegiant.com) will be packing and moving bikes from the finish to the start line leaving Lancaster at 5p. Bus transport for riders will also be provided at the same time. Free of charge for all participants. Please let us know whether you would like a ride upon registration. If 5p doesn't work for you, please reach out and we can coordinate transport.  

How can I get involved if I don't ride bikes? 

We are always looking for volunteers! Hit us up at wityouphilly@gmail.com. 

Can I sponsor you guys?

Of course! Let's talk. wityouphilly@gmail.com.
