Depending upon how you register, your check will either clear or the online registration upon request can send you a confirmation email.

Is there a refund for my registration if I can’t make it or weather day of is bad?

No, all donations to the Fat Tire Ride are non-refundable and we ride rain, snow or shine. Ride start time is officially at 10:00AM or whenever you like.


Does everyone get a tee shirt?

No. We print 1000 shirts and every rider pre-registered before August 31st is guaranteed a T-shirt. When they’re gone, baby, they’re gone!

Can you hold/mail a T-shirt for me?

No, but someone else can pick up your T-shirt (and packet) prior to ride start.

Identity theft online is a global problem but identity theft during the Fat Tire Ride is unlikely.

Can I request a specific T-shirt size?

No, the T-shirt sizes are granted at a first-come, first-serve basis. Each year, the sizes run differently depending on the brand of shirt.


Where can I park my car during the ride?

Parking on the streets and in some lots in Lake Geneva is at a premium. Please review the City of Lake Geneva Parking page to avoid unnecessary tickets. Central Denison Elementary School located 1 block West of Champs will also have all day parking available.


Can my children ride with me?

The Fat Tire Ride is designed and intended for responsible legal age adults only.


Do I have to ride a mountain bike? Can I ride a road bike?

The entire route is paved. You can ride what you’re comfortable riding.

Can I ride a motorized vehicle like a scooter or motorcycle?

No. It’s a bicycle ride.


Can you recommend a local motel or hotel?

The Ridge is our official hotel sponsor with special rates for the Fat Tire Ride.
