About The Ride
32nd Annual Tour de Shore
Sunday, July 28, 2019
Registration will open in February 2019.
- All riders must register and collect an additional minimum of $200 . This does not include registration fee, see registration fee schedule above.
- Minimum donations must be raised by July 1st or you will be removed from the ride.
- You CAN still register after July 1st but you must pay registration fee as well as donation minimum in full when signing up.
- Easy to navigate website registration and support staff at the Tour de Shore Children's Foundation are available to guide you through registration and offer tips on how to reach your fundraising goals.
- Rider return transportation option must be chosen during registration so that we can provide an adequate amount of buses. Buses will be designated back to both start-points.
- We also offer a complimentary service of bringing your bike back to your starting location. This option also must be chosen when registering. While we do our best to handle your bike with care but the bikes are in close quarters on trucks back to Philadelphia and Berlin, NJ. If you are very fond of your bike or it is very valuable, we do not recommend using this service. We are not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged property.
- Want to raise money, but don't want to ride 50 or 65 miles? You can now register as a "virtual" rider. A virtual rider is someone who would like to help raise money for the Tour de Shore, but does not want to participate in the ride. Virtual riders are not required to raise a specific amount of money.
- Volunteers are needed for all aspects of Tour de Shore. When you register as a volunteer, a fundraising page will be created for you. While you are not required to raise any money, this is a way for you to become even more involved in the ride!
