REGISTRATION FOR CYCLIAD 2020 OPENS IN SEPTEMBER
For all your questions, read on!
Why does this ride cost $0...because in keeping with our belief that change is possible and helping is easy, we have eliminated registration costs. In the same way that we want to remove barriers for individuals and families with cancer, we want to remove any barriers to making helping easy! Together, we can spark change but we NEED YOU to do that. We encourage you to do more than just pedal by engaging those around you to come out, ride, FUNdraise, donate, volunteer, and make a difference.
Let's really move the needle...together!

Please see a volunteer upon arrival for Check-in or Registration.
We start our riders from fastest groups to slowest. Since our routes all follow the same basic course, putting you in the appropriate group allows you to ride in at the average speed you are most comfortable with along the entire course. This controlled start allows a natural separation while limiting the amount of passing riders have to do.
As a cyclist, you are the best judge of your expected average speed over the course of your ride. Our goal is to naturally spread you out over the course. The easiest system to do this is to allow you to choose which average speed you expect of yourself.
If you need help with this, at the back of our Ride Booklet, there is a time projection based on speed and points on the course. Hopefully this gives you a sense of what group best fits you.
*What is a Wave Start?
FREE! That's right, event parking is free!
UAB KIRKLIN CLINIC
Entrance on 6th Ave. S.
between 21st & 22nd St. S.
We made our event free so that it's easier for you to help so why would we make you pay for parking? UAB has graciously allowed us the use of the Kirklin Clinic parking deck for the event.
Please note: Due to safety concerns CYCLISTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO RIDE DOWN THE DECK. We know it is very tempting (and much faster) but there will be a lot of cars in a very small space with a lot of blind curves so please do not ride down the deck.
It's a party at Cycliad Village! Join us for a day of fun as we come together to make a difference in the lives of local cancer patients.
Make sure to stop by and say hi to all of our favorite sponsors!
