We are excited to host a first-class event experience in Chesterfield on September 25 and 26, 2021. We have partnered with the Chesterfield Mall to create an amazing outdoor event with ample room for social distancing and space for teams to safely gather. With eight courses over two days, three spin zone sessions and a flexible Inspired option, there’s something for everyone! Whether you decide to join us in person as a rider, spinner or volunteer, or from home as a virtual Inspired participant, we are dedicated to giving you an unforgettable, inspirational experience and grateful for your commitment to creating a world without cancer.
In everything we do at Pedal the Cause, our community of cancer thrivers and survivors is top of mind. As always, but especially as the spread of COVID-19 remains a serious concern, our event must prioritize the health, safety and well-being of those most vulnerable in the Pedal Family. With this in mind, and in our commitment to hosting a safe and comfortable event for everyone, we have established a comprehensive COVID-19 Policy and event safety protocol. Proof of full vaccination or proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test will be required of all participants, staff, volunteers, and vendors to gain access to the Ride Village and Refueling Stations. To ensure the safest Ride Weekend possible, access to Ride Village will be limited to event participants and volunteers only. Designated Spirit Stations will be available along the route for family and friends. Please click HERE for full details and the latest updates.
We rely on our participants to set goals, reach incentive levels, and to fundraise to the best of their abilities to achieve or mission of funding critical cancer research. As a result of the economic uncertainties brought about by COVID-19, we have implemented lower fundraising commitments than prior years. Riders, spinners and Inspired participants who register by July 1 will have a minimum commitment of $100 for one day, $200 for two days. After July 1, commitments will increase to $250 for one day, $500 for two days. Kids Challengers never have a fundraising commitment, but they can earn incentives for fundraising!
A variety of training ride options will be available in July and August. Visit our Training Resources page for a schedule and details on training ride events and other training resources.
