Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register for the 2018 Little Red Riding Hood?

This year we will again choose the 3500 riders for Little Red Ride through a lottery process. The Little Red rider lottery will open January 8th and close on January 21st. During this time you can enter the lottery as an individual or as a team, with a group of your friends with whom you want to ride. We will then select the team and individual participants through a random drawing process.  You will be notified no later than January 29 of your selection/non-selection status.

How do I find out if I was selected in the lottery?

You will be notified via email of your selection/non-selection status by January 29th.  If, for some reason, you don’t receive an email you can check the results of the lottery by going here  and following the instructions.   NOTE:  You can also check the selection status of a friend or an entire team. If you don’t receive an email please check your spam folder.

Is there a way that if I get in, my friends get in too?

Yes, you can register with a group of your friends as a team (maximum of 10 riders). The lottery process for teams will be by team, not individual, so the entire team is either in or out.
To register as a team first select someone as captain. The captain must be the first member of your team to register for the lottery as they must enter the team name so it will then be available to other team members to select from the list of teams as they register. Each team member must register themselves under the team name that the captain chose.
Tandem riders and mothers riding with their daughter should enter as a team.

Can a male rider ride Little Red with me?

NO!  We don’t allow men to ride for any reason.  This is a Women’s Only Bike Ride!

Can my family follow me on the course in their car?

NO!  Little Red provides all of the support you need.

How will the Lottery Work?

We will calculate the percentage of riders vying for a slot in each distance and as an individual or a team.  Based on that percentage we will then calculate the number of riders allowed to participate at each distance.  We will then randomly select the teams and individuals to fulfill the quota assigned to each distance.

Can I change my ride distance after I have registered?

Yes. You can update the information you provided when you registered by going back to the imATHLETE web site and changing critical information such as the distance you intend to ride, your address, the size or selection of the complementary t-shirt etc. These changes can be made through March 31st. After this date changes will not be accepted. (Note: A change in t-shirt style or size is subject to availability.)

Can I transfer my registration to another rider if I cannot make the ride?

Yes, but only through March 31, 2018.  After that date transfers will not be allowed.  Note that riders registering after March 31st will not have a personalized bib and t-shirt sizes will be subject to availability.

Here are some quick steps to transfer your registration to a new participant:

  • Go here to transfer your registration.
  • Enter in your confirmation code (found next to the participant name on your confirmation receipt)
  • Select “Transfer your registration to someone else”
  • Fill out the form and click “Send”
  • The new participant will be contacted directly by imATHLETE with instructions to register for the ride in your place.
