- By registering at USA Cycling, pre-registered riders NO LONGER HAVE TO SIGN A PAPER WAIVER. USA Cycling collects your online signature.
- Please note that to pre-register, you must create a USA cycling account, but creation of an account does not cost anything. If you already have an account or racing license, life is even easier. Once you create an account, you can sign up for which ride you want and any additional items that you might want to purchase (i.e. extra cool t-shirts). When you get to the Order Summary Page, you have to check items that you do not want to remove them from your cart. By default, USA Cycling adds a one day license option (for those who do not already hold a USA Cycling license). You DO NOT have to have a one day license to ride the Firecracker Ride, so remove this from your cart if you do not want it.
- If you purchase a one day license you are entitled to the USA Cycling accident medical coverage the day of the event. All medical coverage is subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions of the policy. For more detailed information please contact USA Cycling.

Where does your money go? There are a lots of costs to putting on a ride like this, and we can typically yield about $10 / person per registration to go towards to the MS Society. Please consider making an extra donation below. Our hard working volunteers are doing this for the love of the sport and the passion we have for the MS Society's goals. Please join us in the fight, join us for the after ride party, and support our sponsors who support our community. Thanks!
