2019 PLAIN WRAP RIDE – COME FOR THE RIDE, STAY FOR THE FUN – SATURDAY, MARCH 16TH

What’s with the Name?

For those of us old enough to remember, grocery and convenience stores in the 80’s used to carry generic staples like, plates, sporks, paper plates, even beer in plain wrapped packaging at value pricing. The Plain Wrap Ride is a basic charity fun ride with all the essentials (route sheets, turn arrows, rest stops, support vehicles) minus the frills that make for expensive registration fees.

Give me some details about the ride…

This year’s ride will have staggered starts for 62, 35 and 18 mile routes starting and finishing in downtown Redlands at the Redlands at Bicycle Classic’s Start/Finish line on Saturday, March 16th starting at 8:00 A.M. The 62 mile route will have two rest stops and the 35 mile route has one rest stop.

How much does it cost and where does my money go?

– Single Registrants: $30 Online, $45 Same Day.
– Tandem Registrants: $45 Online, $55 Same Day.

Your registration includes access to the rest stop food and vehicle support. At the end of the ride you will receive a voucher for the Redlands Bicycle Classic Vendor Expo which has great food, local craft beer and live music; not to mention all the bicycle races! You will also receive complimentary bike valet secure storage while enjoying the Vendor Expo. Finally for clubs, teams and groups of ten or more registrants, $10 for each rider will be donated to a cycling related charity or advocacy group of your choosing.
– a great way to support the sport we love!
