Here is the fee schedule:
Sign up early & save!
August 1st - December 31st: $15
Now - March 31st: $20
April 1st - May 15th: $25
May 16th - June 9th: $30

My plans have changed and I cannot make the ride, can I still cancel my registration? Can I keep my registration and participate virtually? Do I still have to fundraise?
From the Tour De Cure Website:
"Yes, we can cancel your registration, and you are not required to fundraise if you will not be riding in the event. We appreciate your contacting us so we can release your space to another rider. Your registration is nonrefundable and nontransferable. Alternately, even though you will not be able to ride, we can keep your registration active on our website to allow you to continue fundraising for our important cause to stop diabetes. This way you will be participating as a virtual rider, and if you meet or surpass the fundraising minimum, you will be entitled to receive the event t-shirt as well as a thank you gift of your choosing."
