It's that time of year again.... time to start planning to Ride for Get Your Guts in Gear!

We are excited to share with you that we are doing something completely new this year, and next year.  In an effort to continually meet the ever-changing needs of our community, and continue to engage both veteran and new participants, we are unveiling a bold plan for 2016 and 2017.

Regional Rides:
In 2016, GYGIG will bring its community of riders, volunteers, friends, and family together for participant-led and participant-driven Regional Rides.  Regional Ride locations, dates, and details will be created by team captains, while GYGIG will be here every step of the way to provide resources for creating and executing your Regional Ride. You can see the Regional Rides that have been created so far HERE. More information regarding creating your own Regional Ride can be found below.

The ultimate goal of these Regional Rides will be to bring our community together in more locations than ever before and to continue to grow and foster this community, while preparing for our exciting new adventure in 2017.

Guts Across America:

In 2017, Get Your Guts in Gear will create an entirely new program: Guts Across America -- a bike ride across America.

The Guts Across America Ride will have two segments: 

Team Guts-comprised of volunteers and riders who will accept the challenge of going across the country.  As a rider, this does not necessarily mean that you must ride  every mile.  Rather, this means that you will be with us across the country for this epic journey and become an integral part of the thread that will weave our community across the country.  More information, details, and registration for Team Guts will be available this spring.

Relay Ride Across America -volunteers and riders will be able to choose segments within the ride to join Team Guts.  Whether you can spend a day, a weekend, a week, or a month with us, we will have the opportunity for you to join us for any amount of time that will work for you.   You will be an equally integral part of our journey as you help GYGIG across the country, passing the baton onto your fellow riders and volunteers.  More information, details, and registration for our Relay Ride Across America will be available this spring.

We believe that our Regional Rides around the country in 2016, and our ride across the country in 2017 will solidify our community in a whole new way, and will be sure to be our biggest two years ever!

We hope that you're as excited as we are to begin this adventure.  But remember, we can't do this without you. You (yes, you) are the backbone of this organization and our events.  Without our dedicated volunteers, crew members, riders, donors, sponsors, and friends, this community and this organization cease to exist.  Get Your Guts in Gear  relies on your dedication and commitment to this cause to do in order to succeed.
