Are You Ready?

One week to go. Registering in January is just a distant memory. March and April training rides are a blur in the rearview mirror. The time is now and Middleville awaits.

One week to go. Everything is ready. Our board and volunteers have been hard at work. Rider packets are ready for pick-up, the scoring website is loaded and ready, routes have been checked, socks have arrived, fruit will be delivered, and neutral support facilities have been created. We are ready for you.

One week to go. Challenge accepted. Your training days are over. Come prove yourself at the 37th National 24 Hour Challenge.

 

Registration Closes at 6:00 p.m. EDT on June 14th

Last call. Registration closes at 6:00 p.m. EDT on Friday, June 14th. You can register at BikeReg.com.

 

Scoring Website is Live!

Our 2019 National 24 Hour Challenge scoring website is now live at 24hr.bike! If you have signed up for the National 24 Hour Challenge, visit 24hr.bike and check out your rider profile page. The rider profile page is new this year and you can share the link to your profile page with your family and friends, so they can follow your progress. If you sent in your picture, you will see it on your rider profile page. If you did not send in your picture and want to have it on your rider profile page, please email your picture to registration@n24hc.org.

If you have any questions or comments about our scoring website, shoot us an email at admin@n24hc.org.

 

RULES You MUST Know

You can find a listing of all of the rules for the National 24 Hour Challenge on our website, but to save you some time, here are the rules you absolutely must know before you come to the event. Please read and heed the rules:

NO PETS ON SCHOOL GROUNDS. No exceptions due to school policies and restrictions. If you bring a pet, you will be asked to leave the school grounds. 

MICHIGAN VEHICLE CODE. All riders are subject to the Michigan Vehicle Code which includes but is not limited to: riders may not ride more than two (2) abreast, riders may not ride to the left of the center line of the road, and riders must obey stop signs and traffic lights. 

CHECK-IN. All riders must personally check-in to event organizers no later than 7:30 a.m. the morning of the event.

HEADLIGHT AND TAILLIGHT. Bicycles must be equipped with a constant burning white headlight and constant burning red taillight visible from a distance of 500 feet. The headlight and taillight must be affixed to the bicycle. The headlight and taillight must not blink.

If you have questions about any of our rules, please let us know. We will go over the rules at the rider meeting on Friday night at 7:00 p.m. in the Thornapple-Kellogg Middle School gymnasium.
