Riley’s Rips FAQ

Why is it called Riley’s Rips?

As told by the event organizer, Tyrone Siglos…

“Riley’s Rips is a celebration of my dog and a fun way to give others a reason to ride.

Riley–my 90lb American Bulldog–was my reason to ride. When I first adopted her, she would terrorize the house if she didn’t get enough exercise. She didn’t like to play fetch and the dog park was too far away so I had to run 10km with her. Every. Day. I got into good shape but it was way too long and I was burning out. So I bought a bike off craigslist and taught her to run next to the bike. It’s how I got started cycling and it has shaped my life since.”

How must does Riley’s Rips cost and what’s included in my fee?

How do I sign up a group for the new Team Category?

New in 2024! Sign up to 10 people–friends, family, or coworkers–to form a Riley’s Rips Pack.

Teams will receive the same manifest as individuals, but will have an extra challenge after the dust has settled to claim the title of Top Dogs.

To sign up as a team, you may do so in advance via the Registration Form ($10 per person) or on the day of the event ($15 per person).

How long are the rides?

Rides are self-navigated, so length will vary based on the route and number of checkpoints a rider chooses to check off on their manifest.

A beginner’s route will be provided for those who’d prefer something more guided and will total around 20kms.

Alternatively, plan your own route to hit all checkpoints. These rides will average 40kms.

If you know the meeting spot and time, aren’t already registered, and I have time to check you in, YES!!! You are welcome to join the day of but registration fee will be $15 cash, not $10. Folks who registered ahead of the event are given first priority for the awards. Day-of registrants are permitted to attend the awards if there is available space.

Do we ride on the road?

Some of the event takes place on protected bike lanes, other sections do not. Roads are not closed for this event. You ride at your own risk, so be safe, watch out for vehicles, and watch out for each other.
