Register for the Event

While registration and participation in the 2016 ElliptiGO Winter Classic is FREE, we do ask that all who plan to attend register for the event HERE, so that we can have an accurate count for all meal reservations and food provisions on Sunday at the Tailgate Party. Thank you!

Renting an ElliptiGO Bike for the Weekend

Coming in from afar and can’t bring your ElliptiGO bike?  No problem!  We will have a limited number of ElliptiGO elliptical bikes available for rent at the event*.  The cost of the rental is $50 for the entire weekend and will be delivered prior to the first ride on Saturday morning by the infamous ElliptiGO van.  All bikes will need to be returned following the Sunday group ride.  If you would like to hold on to the bike throughout the weekend, and are able to transport it yourself between events, please let us know.  Likewise, if you will not be able to transport the rental between events, the ElliptiGO van will be able to do so for you, but you will need to arrive at each ride 30 minutes early to secure your rental for the day.  If you would like to reserve a bike for the weekend, please call Keri at (888)796-8227 by January 11th, 2016 to check on availability and make the rental payment.  Bikes are available on a first-come-first-served basis until this date or until we reach our rental capacity, whichever comes first.

*We suggest that all participants who rent a bike bring along any of their own accessories that they would like to have for the weekend rides (helmet, toe cages, water bottle holder, GPS, etc.).
