Participants who have not met their fundraising requirement by event day will need to pay the outstanding amount to participate in the ride. Please contact CycletheSeacoast@Lung.org if you would like to brainstorm fundraising ideas.

No, your registration fee does not apply towards the fundraising minimum.
