WHAT IS BIKE NCSY?
Bike NCSY is a cycling event that anyone can participate in. Our riders each volunteer to raise scholarship funds for NCSY teens across North America via their own unique sponsorship pages.
As a member of the Bike NCSY team, riders will receive our Rider Swag Pack filled with Bike NCSY gear for your ride and beyond.
WHEN AND WHERE IS BIKE NCSY?
Bike NCSY will take place on Sunday, August 14th, 2022 at Cedar Creek Park on Long Island, NY. We supply a variety of route distances so that anyone can join! You can find them on our Ride Info page.
If you live outside of the New York area and would like to set up a local route, please contact us at email@example.com.
TELL ME ABOUT THE RIDE!
The Bike NCSY experience begins the moment you click register! Our team will get right to work mailing you your welcome pack so you can start showing off to your friends and family.
Leading up to the event, we will have training opportunities for riding AND fundraising! Our staff will be with you along the way to support your efforts. We have routes ranging up to 50 miles, with rest stops along the way so you can choose the ride that’s best suited for you!
Just when you think the Bike NCSY baseball cap is the best swag you’ve ever seen, you’ll receive your official Bike NCSY Rider Gear Box, filled with all you’ll need for the day of the ride.
Ride Day: When you arrive at Cedar Creek park, you will be greeted by our volunteers who will direct you to the start line. We will have staggered start times so everyone has space to ride and can go at their own pace. Ride captains will kick off each Bike NCSY route. At the end of the ride, there will be a Finish Line BBQ Festival in the park.

HOW DO I JOIN BIKE NCSY?
You can register for Bike NCSY here! The minimum fundraising requirement is $750. There is a $75 registration fee that will be applied towards your fundraising. Upon registration and payment of $75 you will be sent your Bike NCSY welcome package!
Please note, the $75 registration fee is nonrefundable. If you cancel prior to July 2, 2022, you will not be charged the remainder if there is a balance towards your fundraising minimum. However, all money raised to that point will be considered a donation to NCSY and is nonrefundable.
Each rider is required to raise their full amount by September 15th, 2022. If you have not raised or paid your minimum by that date, the credit card you used for registration will automatically be charged the remaining balance to get you to your selected package minimum.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY RIDER GEAR BOX?
Your Rider Gear Box, with everything you’ll need for your ride, will be shipped closer to the event date. In some instances, rider packages may be shipped to a central location in your community for pick up. Stay tuned for more information.
I NEVER RIDE. WILL I BE ABLE TO FINISH A ROUTE?
Absolutely! It might take a little bit of training, but we will supply multiple distance options. You may even surprise yourself and be able to ride further than you think!
I AM CONCERNED THAT I MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO RAISE THE REQUIRED FUNDS. WILL I BE ABLE TO DO IT?
Even if you’ve never raised money before, just a little bit of hard work and social media savvy will make it easy for you to solicit and collect sponsorships from friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, and others.
NCSY is a worthwhile organization and our riders are enthusiastic about its mission. You will be surprised by how many friends, family, and co-workers will respond to your effort to help this wonderful cause. Remember, you are not simply asking people to make donations… you are asking them to sponsor YOU and YOUR efforts!
The minimum fundraising package requirement is $750. Each rider is required to raise their full amount by September 15, 2022. If you have not raised or paid your minimum by that date, the credit card you used for registration will automatically be charged the remaining balance to get you to your package minimum. You can also pay off the remainder of your balance on your rider page.
Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $18 or more
Canadian tax receipts will be sent out towards the middle of 2023.
