Event day registration

Checking for the Worst Day of the Year Ride is as easy as 1-2-3.

1) Attend the Pre-Ride Party or arrive at the start line at the time registration opens for your course (see the schedule).
2) Park your bike. (Registration goes MUCH quicker if you do not have your bike with you).
3) We will award you a rider number with your lunch ticket. The rider number gets you access to the course, support and lunch.

Plan to send just one person to check in for your entire group – it speeds up the process for you and everyone else.



Arrive early and get fresh coffee from Nossa Familia, doughnuts from Franz bakery and granola from KIND.

Registration, breakfast and check in opens for Challenge Loop

We release riders in waves, meaning a few riders at a time, to help you stay spread out on course.
