See our updated cancellation policy and waivers.

In order to register for any event, you must agree to Cascade’s waiver and refund policies at the time of registration. Please review our refund policy for details.

Where are masks still required?

Masks are not legally required on Washington state ferries or indoors, but when there is a high community spread of COVID-19, we recommend that you please mask up when in crowded groups, at aid stations, or when riding with a SAG support vehicle. Cascade cares about the most vulnerable among us.

What are the registration limitations?

There are currently no restrictions from the state on rider limits, but events still have rider limits.

Will vaccination or COVID testing be required to participate in the event?

As of March 1, 2022, King County no longer requires us to check vaccination cards or test results.

What measures are you implementing to ensure the health and safety of your riders?

Hygiene stations and supplies will be made available at the event. Riders may pick up a mask at starting point help desks.

 

General FAQ

Can I register my friends for an event?

No. You can not purchase registration for your friends, but you can purchase a gift registration for them! The only exception is that adults can register one immidiate adult (a spouse or partner) family member. Individual accounts do have permission to register minors, but you will not be able to register other adults.

Do I need to register my children, and how do I?

Yes, all children (even in seats and trailers) over one year old need to be registered for liability reasons. You can make accounts for minors, under your account by going to "My Account" -> "Profile" -> "Manage Household" and then create a new household member. Be sure to enter their ages accurately, so they can qualify for youth pricing. Children under the age of one are not recommended for our rides for safety reasons.

Is group registration allowed?

No. Group registration is not permitted. We do sell gift registrations for situations like this! Your friends or colleagues will need to register for events individually or by household if applicable.

Is STP inclusive and welcoming?

There is no one type of STP Rider. The ride is open to all who register, and because of that, we make sure that anyone that wants to do the ride is welcome and included. We do that with lots of rider support, encouraging volunteers, and a community value that all bodies deserve to be on bikes. We have families training for STP together, as well as many different affinity groups. We encourage you to reach out to your fellow riders and help them along the STP journey.

Where can I find my membership number and expiration date?

You can find them on your membership card. You may also sign in to your online account to find your membership details under the membership tab.

Do I need my membership number to register for major rides?

No. You do not need to provide your membership number when registering for major rides. When you successfully sign into your Cascade Bicycle Club account your account information including membership status will automatically reflect.

I have purchased membership, but my member price is not showing?

First, verify you have signed into your account. If you see My Dashboard listed in the top right corner this indicates you are properly signed in. To note, non-member pricing is going to show for both members and non-members as you complete the intial part of the registration. Importantly, after you have agreed to and checked the consent/waiver agreements and also reviewed the optional items for purchase click the add to cart box located in the bottom left corner. Your member pricing will show once the registration is in the cart.

What is household and how many people can join?

Households include two adults and any minor dependents living at the same address.

How can I add family members to my account?

Requires membership. Sign into your account, and navigate to the "profile" tab, and look for the "manage household" sub-tab. Here you can add family members. If you don't see this tab, send an email to info@cascade.org, as it's possible your account will need a new permission to act as a family primary account.

I have a premium membership, can I register my family and friends?

You can register your family only. An individual membership only allows you to purchase registration and receive the paid member discount for yourself. Individual member accounts cannot purchase ride registrations for more than one adult at the member price. The only exception to registering more than one adult is to purchase a family membership.

Can I change the pace group I selected or do I have to start in that pace?

Please start with the pace where you feel most comfortable. You are not locked into that pace and can change at any time.

What food and drink will be served on STP?

At every stop there will be a myriad of grab-and-go individually portioned snacks for you to either eat at the aid station or take with you as you are riding. There will also be sandwiches and fruit, as well as water and electrolyte options. There will always be gluten-free and vegetarian options included. Many aid stations will also have special treats provided by some of our sponsors as well as delicious options sold by local charity groups running the aid stations. We recommend bringing cash while riding in case you come across a craving.

Can I ride my e-bike on Cascade rides and events?

If your class of ebike is permitted to ride on the roads that our route takes us through, then it is permitted on our ride or event. Check out the Washington Bikes page on state e-bike laws for more information.
