Join us for the 5th annual ROJR - Ride On Jeremy's Ride - on Saturday, Oct. 14th leaving from Ride On Wooster at 7:30 AM. This race is 110 miles through beautiful Wayne, Holmes and Coshocton Counties with approximately 10,000 feet of climbing!
The ROJR 2018 will be a contest between 4 person teams of gentlemen/women. The courses are unsanctioned, unmarshalled, and all rules compliance will be based on the "honor system." You will need a Garmin or GPS device to download the route.
There are no rest stops along the way so come prepared! Sag vehicles are encouraged.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided along with some great swag. Showers are available after the event.
Teams that register by August 1st pay $200.00/4 person team. After August 1st the registration fee is $240.00/4 person team. Register here or for additional registration details see FAQs - The ROJR 2018 below.
There will be plenty of circumstances along the course that will not be covered in the rules. When these circumstances arise, code-of-conduct best practices apply. Let's honor each other as gentlemen and gentlewomen.
To be considered an official finishing team, and to be eligible for the grand prize and trophy, your team must complete the entire course. If your team makes a wrong turn the team must go back to where the team left the route and continue from there. The ROJR 2018 course presents challenges throughout the race! Any portion of the map left unridden will disqualify the team from any awards.
The team may provide its own SAG vehicle. However, the team SAG vehicle CAN only help with food, water, and equipment. The SAG vehicle CANNOT provide a drafting opportunity for its team, and riders will not be permitted to hold onto or enter the vehicle while the race is underway.
Your team's time will stop when the fourth member crosses the finish line.
There will be several "challenges" along the way to be completed for time bonuses - or you can choose to ignore them and carry on!
The underlying spirit of this event is to have fun while challenging yourself alongside good friends. The course terrain serves as a team motivator for overcoming obstacles together.
All race profits will benefit Jeremy Grimm's wife and children. Grimm was killed in a bike/truck accident last fall.
BE THE REASON SOMEBODY FINISHES THE RACE, NOT THE REASON SOMEBODY DOESN'T.
ROJR ON EVERYBODY!
