ONLINE CHECK-IN

Online Check-In helps you save time and makes event check-in easier than ever! You will use it to confirm details like your personal and emergency contact information, your tenting preferences, as well as any shuttle needs. Plus, as safety is our number one concern, we’ll also ask you to watch a short safety video.

Haven’t reached your minimum fundraising minimum yet? No problem! You’ll have the opportunity to make an instant or delayed self-pledge during Online Check-In.

At your own convenience, please login to your Participant Center and start the Online Check-In process.

FAQ

Why should I go through Online Check-In?

The Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer® is Canada’s largest peer-to-peer fundraising event and therefore requires a lot of planning. Online Check-in helps us confirm logistics sooner in order to provide you with the best possible experience and prevents you from waiting in long lines on event day.

 

What is Delayed Self-Pledge?

The Delayed Self-Pledge option allows you to commit to raising your minimum fundraising goal after the event with a $2 self-donation. This nominal self-donation will allow your credit card to be securely kept on file and charged for any balance required to meet the minimum fundraising goal six weeks after the event.

 

What is an Instant Self-Pledge?

The Instant Self-Pledge allows you to make a self-donation now of the amount required to meet the minimum fundraising goal.

AMBASSADOR JERSEY AND PATCH

Ride Ambassadors are fundraising leaders and/or champion recruiters. They help us introduce the event to their communities and create awareness of the fight against cancer and to recognize their efforts, each Ambassador receives a special jersey, as well as a Patch that indicates their Ambassador Level (Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum).

Your Ambassador jersey will be included in your Rider Packet, which you will receive after completing Online Check-in or by checking-in on the morning of the Ride.

To pick-up your Ambassador Patch, please make your way to the Jersey Exchange area on the morning of The Ride.

WHAT TO PACK

With the Ride coming on fast, our partner Sugoi would like to offer some tips on what to pack in preparation for Event weekend.

  1. Your helmet and two pairs of bike shorts – one for each day of The Ride – with a good chamois which will make your ride much more comfortable.
  2. Packable jacket: the weather can change instantly so it is important to have a lightweight, packable jacket that protects you from the elements, but offers breathability.
  3. Loud & proud jersey: show your personality or if you are riding with a team, your team¹s spirit, with a jersey that you are proud to wear.
  4. Well-fitted gloves: again, you may want a pair of gloves for each day. Gloves should fit you a little on the tighter side as they will stretch when worn. For long distance riding, invest in a glove with solid padding to save your palms.
  5. Accessories: the smallest accessories can make a big difference. From helmet covers toprotective arm sleeves or compression calf sleeves‹make sure you have some extra coverage come rain or shine.
  6. Socks & compression socks: once you take your shoes off on day one, do yourself a favour and put on some compression socks to help with overnight leg recovery. You will also want another pair of cycling socks for day two.
  7. Change of shoes: this is one that many people forget. You will want to take your cycling shoes off and let your feet get some air so make sure you pack some flip flops or light weight shoes.
  8. Sunglasses: even on an overcast day, sunglasses will help you see better and concentrate on your ride.
  9. Camera: Of course, you want to capture all the amazing moments ¬ this one is an essential!
  10. On Board Fueling: Riding this distance takes major calories! Be sure you don’t dip into the red zone by having energy bars and gels stored in your jersey pocket.

Always start with safety

 

  • Remember: this is a Ride, not a Race!
  • Wear a helmet and carry a patch kit, tire levers, spare tube, and pump at all times.
  • Know and obey all traffic signals, signs, markings, laws, and regulations.
  • Always use hand signals to indicate that you are going to make a right or left turn or are about to stop; motorists and cyclists need to know what you intend to do. If your hands aren’t free as you slow or stop, call out “SLOWING” or “STOPPING”. When stopping, pull to the right edge of the road. Move completely off the road to rest or make repairs.
  • Call out, “ON YOUR LEFT!” when passing at all times. Also, don’t stop or slow down without letting other cyclists and drivers know your intentions in advance. Call out, “STOPPING!” or “SLOWING!”
  • Always ride predictably and in control. Ride in a straight line, and consciously try to avoid excessive weaving back and forth. In most vehicle-bicycle accidents, motorists say they never saw the bicyclists, or didn’t see them in time to avoid the collision.
  • Cycle with traffic, never against it. When moving from one lane to another, always give way to traffic.
  • Keep to the right of the road at all times and leave other Riders plenty of room to pass on your left. The exception to this rule occurs when preparing for a left turn or avoiding unsafe road conditions (potholes, construction, etc.).
  • Always stop at stop signs and look right, left, then right again before entering the road.
  • Always make left turns from the appropriate left-turn lane.
  • Ride single file when cycling with a group. Do not ride side by side.
  • Always be on the lookout for a person in the driver’s seat of any parked car you may pass. Parked drivers are notorious for swinging their doors open suddenly or pulling out into traffic without checking for bicyclists.

Drafting behind other cyclists can be dangerous and leaves very little room for error. These techniques should never be used on The Ride.
