Great Pumpkin Ride
Mark your calendars! The 2015 Great Pumpkin Ride is scheduled for Saturday, October 24, 2015 . . . rain or shine!
The Great Pumpkin Ride is sponsored by Fauquier Trails Coalition, a non-profit organization, and is a fundraiser for the construction of new trails throughout scenic Fauquier County.
The Great Pumpkin Ride will be limited to 1,250 TOTAL riders. Registration will be online ONLY, and there will be NO ride day registration.
Last year, we hit our 1,250 rider limit BEFORE the closing registration date, so,DO NOT WAIT to register!!
Why limit the ride to 1,250 riders? A couple of reasons. First, we want this to be a great ride for you. The Fauquier Trails Coalition is a very small group of volunteers (there are only about 15 of us) that work tirelessly (seriously, we don't sleep) to host this event. Limiting the field to 1,250 riders will allow us to plan accurately -- so we don't run out of important things like t-shirts, pumpkin goodies, and portable toilets!
Second, we want this to be a safe ride for you. If you've ridden with us before, you know we have limited space at the start, and the roads are not closed for this ride. Restricting the field to 1,250 riders will allow for safe, rolling-starts, and, safer rider conditions once you're on the roads.
Online registration (on BikeReg) will OPEN on Sunday, July 26th. There will be a link to the registration page on ourwebsite.
Online registration will CLOSE on Saturday, October 17th, OR, when we reach our field limit of 1,250 riders. Whichever comes first.
Early-bird registration(until August 23, 2015)will be $45.
Regular registration (after August 23, 2015), will be $55.
This has always been Great Pumpkin Ride policy, but please know and understand that the Great Pumpkin Ride is a rain or shine (healthy or not) event --THERE ARE NO REFUNDS!!
