WELCOME TO THE GEARS & BEERS 2019 REGISTRATION SITE!

A note about location for returning riders:
Due to our increased ride participation, we moved our start, finish, and after-party to the Fort of Colonial Mobile (originally Fort Conde) in 2018. The address for the Fort is 150 South Royal Street in downtown Mobile. The Fort is only 0.4 miles from our original street party location, and the same distance (or closer) to our host hotels. It provides a safer and more enjoyable ride experience, and one that includes a little history (and great access to free parking). If you have questions about the location, please contact your Ride Director at jgreene@deltabikeproject.org.

Note: Pre-Order for 2019 Jerseys will be announced in several weeks!

Click the "Register Now" link to register for a ride. The next screen will ask you how you will pay: "Credit/Debit" or "Cash/Check". Once you choose your method of payment, follow the instructions and choose the ticket type that is best for you! Some important notes:

  • If you want a t-shirt and swag, you must register by November 1st. There will be no t-shirts or swag available for late registrants. No exceptions can be made due to pre-order of products.
  • The cost of the rides includes assorted cold breakfast foods (e.g. muffins, snack bars, fruit, doughnuts, coffee, etc.) before the rides, ride-appropriate snacks and water at the start/finish and at rest stops, entrance to the after-party, a custom event t-shirt (for early and on-time registrants only), and a pint of beer.
  • Our ride is on Veteran's Day weekend every year! We are very excited to offer a $15 discount to active duty military, retirees, veterans and Reserve/National Guard! Please contact us at jgreene@deltabikeproject.org for your discount code! Thank you for your service to our country!
  • All minors must be 16 years of age or older and be accompanied for the duration of their ride by a legal guardian. Minors under 16 will only be allowed under the permission of the Delta Bike Project, supervision of parent/guardian and must be able to demonstrate physical and bike handling skills for their chosen route. Thank you for your patience, as this process has worked very well for our young rider's maximum safety, wellness, and enjoyment for the last two years. Please contact jgreene@deltabikeproject.org to discuss registering a minor under the age of 16.
