2020 FAQs Virtual Event

Q: Is the Ride canceled?

A: The Ride is not canceled, but it will be a little different this year. The 2020 Vermont Adaptive Charity Ride will move to a completely virtual event starting now and culminating with virtual happy hour celebration with live music and more on June 20. This is not a decision that we made lightly, and we will miss the opportunity to see you all at Long Trail Brewery, but given guidance from the CDC, the State of Vermont, and in an effort to keep our community and participants safe, we are confident that this is the best decision.

Q: Will the Ride be rescheduled?

A: We will not be rescheduling the physical event for 2020. However, we will be holding 12 weeks of physical and fundraising challenges. While we will not have our physical event on June 20, we will be holding our Virtual Event (ride, walk, run, stroll)  daily April – June.

Q: What is a “Virtual” ride, run, walk, stroll? How do I participate?

A: First, sign up for the virtual event at charityride.vermontadaptive.org/registration/

Once registered, you’ll want to become a member of the Vermont Adaptive Club on Strava.  https://www.strava.com/clubs/VermontAdaptive

Q: Can my team members or others still register?

A: Yes! We encourage you and your friends to register at charityride.vermontadaptive.org/registration/ and continue to fundraise through June 20, 2020.

Q: If I’m already registered, do I need to register again as a Virtual Rider?

A: No! You can continue to raise funds with your initial registration and fundraising page or as a non-participant/volunteer. Your early registration qualifies you for all of the Virtual Event contests, prizes and fundraising incentives.

Q: Can I continue fundraising and have it count towards my goal?

A: Absolutely! Fundraising will continue through June 30, 2020. You will still have access to your fundraising page, and we will be introducing new fundraising challenges and incentives for all participants. We need your fundraising support now more than ever!
