Who can participate in an Honor Ride?  
The Honor Ride Series is open to cyclists of all ages and all levels.  We typically offer three non-competitive routes to choose from on every Honor Ride, so all ability levels can feel comfortable riding.  When registering, choose the route you would like to ride.  Maps of each route are also available.  Should you choose to change your route before the ride, that is no problem; just be sure to pick-up the correct bib corresponding to the color of the route you choose on the day of the ride.
How do I volunteer?
Interested in being part of an Honor Ride Event as a Volunteer? We are always looking for individuals to help before, during and after each ride. If you want to be part of the fun in a way other than biking then join us as a Volunteer. To get signed up, click on the volunteer link on the information page for the specific ride or email: 
Is there SAG support?  
Yes, SAG support is provided and rest stops are stocked with water, fruit and nutrition bars.  Some rest stops will have mechanics, depending on the ride and the route.
Is there parking at all start/finish locations?
Depending on the ride location, parking may be complementary or there may be a small charge if public parking is required.  Each ride will have specific information on parking.  Check
HERE for more details on a particular ride.
Do you provide route Maps?
We provide route maps at registration and routes (maps) can also be found on the specific ride info page.  You can download the route to your GPS service from the link.
Do you provide bikes for participants?
We do not provide bikes for participants so be sure to come prepared.  We do not require a pre-ride bike inspection but expect that all bikes are in working order and helmets must be worn at all times.
Is there first aid at the start/finish and on the course?
There is a first aid kit at all rest stops and a first aid station at the start/finish.  
Where and when is packet pick or pre-registration?
This varies by race and is indicated on the ride information page for that particular ride. Check
HERE for more details on a particular event.
Do you close the roads for the Honor Ride Events?  
Most Honor Rides do not have road closures.  Ride 2 Recovery will always insure the routes are safe and police or other motor escorts are provided through heavily trafficked areas and often out of the city limits.  This varies by ride.  ALL RIDES ARE RULES OF THE ROAD.
Do you sell merchandise at the rides?
YES!! We sell Ride 2 Recovery jerseys and other apparel at all Honor Rides.  All apparel can also be pre-ordered on the registration site and picked-up the day of the ride. You can also find Honor Ride and other R2R gear
