Register & Fundraise
On-line Registration On-line registration will open December 15, 2017 and will close at 6 pm on Wednesday, March 7, 2018. Paper registration delivered to the Team office will be accepted until 6 pm on Wednesday, March 7, 2018. If we have not reached our limit, riders can also register on-site either day of the event, but the fee will be higher to do so.
For rider safety, this year the City Manager’s Tour will be limited in the number of riders.
Friday Only - You can register for just the City Managers Tour without a rider limit
Friday Also – Saturday riders can register for 1 of the 4 Saturday rides. Saturday riders can register to also attend the City Managers Tour and associated City Manager’s Tour After Ride Social Hour. However Friday ALSO will be limited to 100 Saturday riders that choose it. SORRY, THIS RIDE IS NOW FULL.
Wristbands will be provided for all City Manager’s Tour riders.
Those who register by midnight on Sunday, February 25, 2018 are assured the size, gender, and type of T-shirt that they order. A supply of free cotton T-shirts may be on hand for those registering after that date, but availability, gender, and size is not guaranteed.
The cotton T-shirt is included in the registration. For $22, riders can opt for the same T-shirt in a cool Techwick® type material instead of cotton. NOTE: This T-shirt is not the Limited Edition Pedal and Play Jersey.
Please note: when you pay on-line using your credit card, your bill will reflect a purchase from active.com. Also, read the discount statement and check-out pages carefully. You may inadvertently be signing up for a subscription to Active Endurance. You have 30 days from the registration date to cancel this membership and receive a refund.
A few other notes about on-line registration: active.com associates your account with your e-mail address, so two or more people cannot register with the same e-mail. Also, you cannot register someone else under your account because we need everyone to sign the on-line waivers. If two or more are registered under the same account, only one registrant can sign the waivers.
We prefer that you use the on-line registration system, but we will also have a paper form available HERE that you can download and submit to TEAM Punta Gorda.
Insurance For insurance purposes, you must fill out and sign a waiver from USA Cycling. We need original signatures on the form, so we cannot include it as part of the on-line registration process. We will e-mail the form to all registrants, but you can also download it HERE. The only areas you need to fill in are highlighted. Bring the completed and signed form with you to the registration table at the event or you will have to complete the form on-site.
It is easy to be a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). For those who like a challenge, we offer a FREE Pedal and Play Jersey to anyone fundraising $500 or more.
No one is immune from the devastating effects of cancer. Most likely, you have friends or family who have fought with cancer. You can help win that battle. Small donations from many people like you and those who would sponsor you add up and make a real difference. You can ride for fun and also for a purpose. It's a win-win. The LLS's mission is to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. You and your sponsors will be helping to make that goal a reality.
Simply click here: LLS Pedal and Play Fundraising to be directed to the LLS special fundraising page for the 2018 Pedal and Play in Paradise.
Once there, you can set up your own fundraising page to ask others to sponsor your participation in Pedal and Play. To set up sponsors for your ride, click on "Join as Individual" and you can create an account and an address book of friends and family who might sponsor you. You then create a personal message, using the LLS standard message or our Pedal and Play specific message (see below) to invite potential sponsors to participate. A donation as modest as $10 or $25 adds up when many participate. The LLS website will send a Thank-You on your behalf to your sponsors and it will track your total for you.
The LLS website has a default message that you can use, but a suggested one that is specific to the Pedal and Play is:
"I'm raising money for a very important cause through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society: finding better treatments and cures for blood cancers.
You can help by sponsoring my ride in the 2018 Pedal and Play in Paradise bike event. Small donations from many people like you add up and can make a real difference. Please make a tax-deductible contribution in any amount.
Please use the link in this email to donate online quickly & securely. You will receive an email confirmation of your donation as soon as it is made.
I thank you in advance for your support which will make a difference in the lives of thousands of patients battling blood cancers. I really appreciate your generosity!!"
Those fundraising $500 or more for LLS will be given a FREE 2018 limited edition Pedal and Play Jersey. It's a win-win-win! You get to have fun, make a real difference, and come away with a unique quality jersey at no extra cost. See our Gear to Buy page for all the details about the jersey.
