Everyone’s favorite new annual tradition, Ride Preview Day is a mid-distance, Center-led training ride starting at 79th Street Boat Basin, complete with Crew-staffed rest stops, lunch and a fully-marked route to give everyone a taste of what our three-day adventure in September will be like. Registration is $30 for public participants and free for C4C 2019 participants with the provided code. All non-C4C 2019 participants will be given a Virtual Rider fundraising page for C4C 2019 upon registration for the event.
After the training ride, our official Ride Preview Day Hospitality Sponsor, Boat Basin Cafe, will be providing drink specials and complimentary snacks for all participants!
