What is the Tour de BBQ?

The Tour de BBQ, which will be held on October 9th, will be OKC’s tastiest event on two wheels. It is a “tour” – not a race – where riders choose between routes of 15, 35, and 62 miles. What makes the event unique is that the rest stops for each route are some of OKC’s most famous barbeque restaurants where riders are provided a sample of that restaurant’s offering. After cyclists complete their route, they’re greeted with frosty beverages and more barbeque in a festival like atmosphere.

 

The Tour de BBQ is a non-for-profit event that helps raise money for local cancer research. Participants can “Fundraise to Ride” in which you will have no upfront rider fee, but rather commit to fundraising at least $100 by October 6rd in order to participate in the 2016 Tour de BBQ. Prizes and gifts will be awarded to those who meet the various fundraising levels (prizes announced soon). You can also register the traditional way by paying a standard rider fee. No fundraising will be required but still encouraged!

Registration

There are two types of registration for the Tour de BBQ: “Fundraise to Ride” or traditional registration.

Traditional Registration

Here, you simply pay the registration fee and fundraising is optional – although still encouraged. Once you pay the registration fee, you can still join a fundraising team, create your own team, or fundraise individually. But nothing further is required if you simply choose to show up and ride.

Early Registration Thru August 15th General Registration Thru October 7th Packet Pickup and Race Day Registration
Short Stack (15 mile) $20
Long Stack (35 mile) $30
Full Slab (62 mile) $45
Short Stack (15 mile) $45
Long Stack (35 mile) $55
Full Slab (62 mile) $70
Short Stack (15 mile) $50
Long Stack (35 mile) $60
Full Slab (62 mile) $75

Fundraise to Ride

The other way to register is through the Fundraise to Ride. With this option you pay no upfront rider fee, but rather commit to fundraising at least $100 by October 6th in order to participate in the 2016 Tour de BBQ.

What happens if I don’t raise $100 by October 6th? You can still participate in the Tour de BBQ by paying the current registration price for your distance or personally donating the remaining amount to fulfill the $100 fundraising obligation.
