Reform: Ride for Refugees
Saturday, August 11, 2018 | 8AM
Reform Ride for Refugees is a bike ride (not a chip timed event) sponsored by Lutheran Community Services Northwest (LCSNW) and five Kitsap county churches united to raise awareness and financial support for refugees. There are three different routes: 10, 30ish, and 50 mile courses to appeal to riders new and experienced. Our rides range from an easy stroll through to our 50 mile ride with over 3,600 feet of elevation gain for a scenic and challenging course meant to showcase the best of Kitsap County!
50 Mile Check In: 8:00am, Start 8:30am
30 Mile Check In: 8:15am, Start 8:45am
10 Mile Check in: 9:30am, Start 10am
A special thanks to our area Lutheran churches who are hosting this event! That means real bathrooms (no porta-potties at this event)! All riders will enjoy the benefits of being able to ride a course with aid stations, which include access to running water, bathrooms, and refreshments! All courses start and end at Silverdale Lutheran with food and beer garden!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? – Our insurance recommends no one under the age of 13 since riders will be on open roads however, we leave it up to parents to make the final judgement. The 30 mile ride has over 2,000 ft of elevation gain and the 50 mile route has over 3,600 ft of elevation gain to make for a very challenging course.
What can I bring into the event? – Please bring extra tubes, sunscreen, water bottle and emergency contact information written on the back of your bib. HELMETS ARE MANDATORY! Riders are responsible for the care of their bike. We will try to have swag wagons to check on our riders, however it is in all riders’ best interest to be self-sufficient on the course.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions? – Ask away! Please contact Allison at firstname.lastname@example.org
What’s the refund policy? – Because this is a fundraising event, there will be no refunds, transfers, or exchanges. The money that is contributed to this event is essential for LCSNW and they are counting on our help.
