Pedal for Peas Registration Form

What should I bring?

On bike: ID and money, sunglasses, basic first aid items, bandanna, camera, map/directions, water bottle or two, tube, tire irons, patch kit, pump, rain jacket, sunscreen, snacks. Cell phone is helpful.

Do we need to wear helmets?

Absolutely! We want everyone to be safe on the ride, so helmets are a must.

Will there be “facilities” available during the ride?

Yes, we will have a relief station at the turn around mark for the 42-mile ride which will include a port-a-pottie, water, and snacks.

What is included with registration?

Snacks, pre-ride mechanical support, a 12-week training regimen (especially helpful for a new rider), a relief station for 42 miles, and the enjoyment of riding with others to support ELCA World Hunger

What is the ride like?

This ride has been recommended by the Great Falls Bicycle Club and is a favorite ride for cyclists who enjoy a good workout and great scenery. Ride starts with 6 miles of flat warm up on busy Lower River Road before heading into some of the toughest hills and least-traveled roads around Great Falls. This ride takes you up to the foot of Little Belt Mountains before a big drop into Eden, a small ranch community at the end of the asphalt.

How can I solicit pledges?

Make a personal fundraising goal and ask your friends, family, and church family to support you. We have an event goal of $10,000. We can do this!

One easy way to ask for pledges is provided by ELCA World Hunger. Upon your registration, you will receive an e-mail invitation to be part of the Pedal for Peas online fundraising team. This will allow you to post our request for pledges on social media or send your request out via e-mail.

You may want to ask for sponsorship for each mile you will ride.
For example: A pledge of .50 for 42 miles = $21
A pledge of $1.00 for 42 miles = $42

We have a bulletin insert available for you to share on an “ELCA World Hunger” Sunday (contact Kendra at [email protected]). There are also lots of great resources at www.elca.org/hunger

How do I submit pledges given with cash or check?

Pledges may be turned in the day of the event or mailed beforehand to Our Redeemer’s (see address below).

What is the start time and end time of the event?

We will depart from Bethel Lutheran Church at 1009 18th Avenue SW Great Falls, MT at 8:00 am on June 2 and the event is officially over at 1:00 pm.
