DATE: Saturday, July 04, 2015
TIME: 8:00 AM

Registration is now open for the 23rd Annual Firecracker Ride on July 4th. Please come out and support this great cause to help find a cure for MS.

We have made many changes to the registration process this year so please read the following information:

Registration is now done at USA Cycling at the following link:


By changing the registration to USA Cycling, pre-registered riders will NO LONGER HAVE TO SIGN PAPER WAVERS to pick up their package which should make life much easier for everyone. Please note that to pre-register, you must create an account on USA cycling, but creation of an account does not cost anything. If you already have an account, life is even easier. Once you create an account, you can sign up for which ride you want and any additional items that you might want to purchase. When you get to the Order Summary Page, please note that you have to check items that you do not want and remove them from your cart. By default, USA cycling adds a one day license option (for those who do not already hold a USA Cycling license). You DO NOT have to have a one day license to ride, so please remove this from your cart if you do not want it.

If you purchase a one day license you are entitled to the USA Cycling accident medical coverage for the event day the license was purchased for and limited to only the cycling activity of the event. All medical coverage is subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions of the policy(ies). For more detailed information please contact USA Cycling.
