I am no longer able to attend the bike tour, how do I drop from the ride?
If for some reason, you need to drop from the Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour, you must submit a Dropped Rider Form. Please click here to submit the form online. Riders will not be dropped from the bike tour until a Dropped Rider Form is received by our offices. If you are unable to access the Dropped Rider Form by clicking the above link, please contact the SS150 team at (262) 785-4272 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Riders who do not fill out the official drop form will be responsible for meeting their $400 ($300 for youth riders and $50 for 25-mile riders) minimum fundraising requirement. All riders who submit a Dropped Rider Form will receive confirmation from our office. Forms must be received by July 1st, 2022. The only exception to this deadline is if a rider needs to drop for a medical reason and can provide a doctor’s certification.
If I need to drop from the ride, can I transfer my registration to someone else?
Yes, you may transfer your registration to someone else. Space is available on the Dropped Rider Form to include information on the person that will be replacing you. Please note the new rider will now be responsible for meeting the fundraising minimum.
I need to drop and do not have a replacement, but my friend/family member is still riding. Can I transfer any pledges I’ve received to their account?
Unfortunately, no, any pledges you raised prior to dropping from the bike tour cannot be transferred to another rider.
I need to drop from the ride, can I transfer my registration to next year?
Unless you are dropping for a medical reason and have a doctor’s certification you cannot transfer your registration to next year. Your registration is, unfortunately, non-refundable.
