Early Registration & What’s New for Tour of Novato 2015
It’s Time to Get Rolling for the Tour of Novato!
Planning and fundraising for the Tour of Novato has kicked off and we have lots of new and exciting things going on that we want to tell you about! We hope this year’s event will be our most successful ever, but we need your help!
PLEASE REGISTER BEFORE APRIL 1 FOR DISCOUNT FEE
Now’s the time to register and start fundraising. If you register before April 1, the fee is discounted to $25 per participant/registrant for the Novato Classic, Family Ride and Downtown Walking Adventure; and $50 for the West Marin Metric Century.
Once signed-up, ask your friends and family to sign-up too! If you aren’t up for cycling, the walk is the perfect way to enjoy our beautiful downtown and be active as well. Each school’s goal is listed on the Tour of Novato website and every donation helps keep our schools, our students, and our community strong.
What’s New This Year!
We have some new fundraising incentives this year to make sure that our stellar fundraisers have some cool swag to show for their efforts. Everyone who raises a minimum of $100 will receive the gift bag and official Tour of Novato T-shirt. Once you raise at least $300, you will receive access to our special event day breakfast to help you fuel up for your ride or walk. At the $500 level, you will have special access to our VIP Tent with extra treats and goodies to help you with you ride or walk recovery. All riders/walkers who raise at least $1000 will also receive a Tour of Novato original design bike jersey! Also, just as we have done for the last few years, the top 10 fundraisers will receive a bright gold Tour of Novato t-shirt so all Tour of Novato and FunFair participants know about the amazing work you did to raise money for Novato’s schools!
We also are offering a new pre-event registration packet pick up option this year to help keep things moving a little more smoothly on event day. If you register by April 30, your event bib, T-shirt and tickets will be available for pick-up between 2pm and 6pm on Friday, May 1. Thanks to our sponsor, Bicycle Brüstop, for hosting pre-event pick up!
Feeling fit and motivated? Why not tackle the 100K Metric Century route through beautiful West Marin? This longer and scenic bike ride is perfect for those enthusiastic riders or anyone up for a challenge! Plenty of information about the route and the assistance provided to cyclists is listed on TourofNovato.org under the “Metric Century” section. Learn about training rides and other route details on our Tour of Novato Facebook page.
We are also seeking volunteers for the event, including setup and cleanup. If you or people you know are interested in helping out sign-up at the TourofNovato.org Volunteer page.
We can’t wait to see you all on May 2nd!
