Anyone registered for Death Ride, but NOT going?BradJackson

I would like to participate in the Death Ride this year, but waited too long to register (Doh!). They are allowing registrants to swap with someone, but need written permission to do so. If there are any takers, please email me or reply so we can work something out.

Thank you,

If you find someone, just become that person. Use their name when you go to check in. Otherwise, they charge you a ridiculous $25. I can't think of any reasonable reason for the $25 fee. They don't incur any additional costs.

I don't think that will work (just saying I'm someone else), I've had to show ID the last couple century events I've done, but thanks anyway.

I did Death Ride in 2000 and 2001, and both times I picked up not only my own packet, but several packets for friends who were coming in late. I walked up, said I was John Smith, Wolfgang Mozart, George Clooney, whatever. It was kind of comical in a way. I have never had to show ID to ride a century.

Whatever you do, be honest about it.

Getting a spot this year was difficult. There was some lottery process.

My view, they should give finishers of 5 peaks priority. Lots of people go and ride a couple of hills. That would be an incentive to do the whole ride.
