Training Schedule / Cycle School

New to cycling? Would you like to become more self-sufficient when you ride? Goldilocks offers a plethora of amazing free classes at a bike shop near you! Come make new friends, fix your bike fit problems, learn to change a flat, and how to fuel your body for a long ride. See the training and cycle school page for more information and a calendar of events in your area.

Fully Supported

Goldilocks spoils participants by providing support unmatched by any other event.

Goldilocks also takes care of her participants providing fully stocked rest stops, a dispatch phone number with operators to assist if you need help along the course, SAG vehicles roving the entire course if you need to be transported, and a delicious catered meal, and many, many Mama and Papa Bear volunteers throughout the course.

Papa Bears

papa-bear-3

Due to repeated requests from Goldilocks participants wishing to ride with their favorite male riding companions, Goldilocks now reserves 10% of ride registrations for Papa Bear riders.

Papa Bears register as any other participant, they are tracked through the ‘male catagory’. At packet pickup they are given the coveted Papa Bear jersey, tubes and CO2. They may ride along, enjoying the event with you, we only ask they help anyone in need they may come across as they ride.

If you ride with a Papa Bear who wants to ride, don’t wait to get him registered.

Rest Stops

Expect to see a rest stop with portable restrooms every 10-20 miles along the course. All cycling rest stops are stocked with fresh fruit, Swedish fish, pretzels, Wheat Thins, hard candy, Fig Newtons, Oreos, licorice, pickles, PB&J, water and Gatorade. Love and encouragement also provided.

Shirt

Goldilocks designs her own custom tee shirt every year. Expect this event tee to be your favorite! She knows just what women want and always comes through providing a soft, extra-long, women specific shirt. It’s the one you’ll want to wear every day!

If the shirt you order doesn’t fit the way you expect, you can exchange it at the event. Goldilocks orders lots of extra shirts and most the time can exchange it for one that is ‘just right’. Occasionally we run out of certain sizes, but we’ll do what we can to make it right.

Event Photos

Goldilocks thinks highlight photos should be FREE! We hire the best photographers to be at the finish line and multiple locations along the course. Be sure to smile big and strike a pose for the cameras. Make sure your event number is visible so we know who is in each photo.

Photos will be made available a week or so after the ride.

Finisher Jewelry

Goldilocks awards her finishers with a darling, sterling silver, hand-crafted finisher’s necklace as they cross the finish line. Dress up your necklace at the Goldilocks event shop with charms that personalize your finisher’s necklaces with your ride distance, birthstone or a number of inspirational phrases.

If you have completed a previous Goldilocks, feel free to exchange your finisher necklace for another variant in the store near the finish line.

Age/Equipment Limitations & Requirements

Goldilocks is open to all females who can finish the course in the allotted amount of time, and under their own power, before the course sections close. Not recommended for children under 8.

Helmets are mandatory. Please carry spare tubes, water bottles, a patch kit, and pump with you during the ride.

Road bikes, mountain bikes, beach cruisers, tandem bikes (buy two ride entries), electric assist bikes, TT bikes, etc. are all welcome! No bike trailers.

Swag

Everyone likes little surprises. Goldilocks always does her best to fit in a few little extras in her goodie bags at packet pick up. Participants love the high quality water bottle, temporary tattoos and other sponsor goodies.

Catered Meal

As you know, Goldilocks is known for a delicious spread. Depending on your event, breakfast or lunch will be served on the course or at the finish line.

Ditch Bags

Dress warm in the morning knowing you can label and bag your extra items and leave them at the start line or any of our rest stops or aid stations and we’ll transport them to the finish line for you.

SAG Services

Part of our fully supported event means if you have a problem on the course, or can’t continue, we’ll provide support to help you solve it or bring you and your bike (if applicable) back to the finish line.

We’ll have Papa Bears on the course to assist with minor problems. We’ll have marked roving vehicles if transport is necessary. Bike Mechanics will also be stationed at rest stops.

Finish Line Festivities/Spectators

No one wants to finish a race with no fanfare. Goldilocks knows how to throw a party and the event wouldn’t be the same without family and friends to cheer on participants as you cross the finish line.

Be sure to invite your family members to the finish line. There will be something for everyone!

Bathrooms

The start line and all the rest stops have plenty of glamorous, clean, pink, portable restrooms.

Transfer or Withdraw

Goldilocks understands that life is unpredictable and that plans sometimes need to be changed. Goldilocks does not offer refunds, but you may transfer your registration to another person or defer your registration to another year or event for a transaction fee.

Change Your Distance

No matter what you registered for, at packet pickup, cyclists may let the volunteer know which mileage they want to ride.

The Cause
