Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will move the individual to the team and refund the difference in price. PLEASE NOTE: It is a very easy registration system so please communicate effectively with your team so that we can avoid this situation.
Ride The Rockies has moved away from the lottery system it had employed for years in favor of an open registration, first come, first served, in order to identify what the true demand is for the event. With the lottery system, the Tour was losing out on those participants, and a larger demographic, who would not attempt to apply due to the lottery format.
No reservation is necessary for indoor or outdoor camping. Space is based on a first-come, first- serve basis. Indoor camping is typically in a gymnasium where you provide your own sleeping bag and pad. Outdoor camping can be done on your own where you bring your tent, sleeping bag, etc. and set it up each night or you can take advantage of Sherpa Packers- full service tent set-up and transportation at an additional cost.
If you have private support traveling with you please have them purchase a Private Caravan Pass so they can access the route, parking and camping. Private Support is allowed to mingle in the outdoor camping areas and RV camping; however, due to limited space indoors, only registered riders or those with registered Private Caravan passes may camp overnight in these areas.
