Bike Around the Bay Registration Guidelines


Late Registration: $65
October 1, 2013 - October 12, 2013
(late registrants are not guaranteed a t-shirt) 

Fundraising Requirement

Two Day Rider: $150 minimum

One Day Rider: $100 minimum 

* All cyclists are required to meet the $150 or $100 fundraising minimum prior to packet pick-up. The fundraising window will remain open until November 12, 2013 for fundraising prize and top fundraiser purposes only.


One Day Ride Option
New this year is the one day ride option, which willl give cyclists the option during registration to select if they would like to be transported back to the start at Barber's Hill ISD from Moody Gardens, either 6:30pm Saturday or 10:30am Sunday morning. The fee is $35/ticket and includes transportation for the cyclist, their bicycle and luggage. Reservations for the bus transportation should be prepurchased, as availibility will be limited at the time of pickup.

Virtual Ride

Non-cyclists (injured riders, BAB volunteers, GBF volunteers, etc.) can be a part of Bike Around the Bay even if they're unable to participate in ride weekend.

Registration: $25 ($18 is tax-deductible)
Fundraising: No fundraising minimum  


Please note:

* Registrations and donations are non-refundable and non-transferable.

* The minimum age for a rider riding his or her own bicycle is 12 years of age as of October 12, 2013.

* Each rider of a tandem bicycle should register separately.

* Complimentary dinner is provided for registered cyclists at Moody Gardens the evening of night one. Extra dinner tickets for friends and family can be purchased for $25/person during registration, online, and on-site during ride weekend.


Bike Around the Bay Fundraising

* After registration, you will have access to a personal fundraising page through your "Participant Center." You can use the "Participant Center" button on the right of the screen to reach the homepage, where you will enter your customized log-in information. We encourage you to bookmark this site for easy reference.

* All fundraising donations are tax-deductible. Online gifts can be made easily through your personal fundraising page. If your collect checks or your supporters prefer to mail checks directly, please ensure checks are made payable to the Galveston Bay Foundation and include "Bike Around the Bay" and your name in the "memo" field.

* Matching gifts from your employer and your supporters' employers count toward your fundraising goal! Because companies often distribute matching gift payments annually or quarterly, we'll add "unconfirmed" gifts to your fundraising page as soon as we receive matching gift paperwork. These gifts will be recognized for fundraising minimum requirements for packet pick-up. If you have questions about how to request or encourage matching gifts, please contact Jessica at jcurran@galvbay.org.

* Offline gifts including checks and matching gifts will be added to your TeamRaiser page within one week of their receipt at the GBF office.

* GBF recognizes top fundraisers through a Fundraising Recognition Program which includes weekly drawings in August/September and overall fundraising awards offered to cyclists raising $250 or more. Follow us on Facebook or re-visit the Bike Around the Bay website to stay up-to-date on our 2013 Fundraising Recognition Program.
