How To Prepare For The Tour


The Wahooligan Tour 2023

1.  How Do I Register

In order to participate in The Wahooligan Tour, please register with the  Davis Phinney Foundation. We ride the Tour each year in order to raise funds for the foundation to assist them in their work to help people with Parkinsons live better today.

You'll be registered as an official participant for the Tour and you'll also be able to set up your personal fundraising page. We have an event goal of $350,000 this year, please help us achieve this by letting your family and friends know that you are taking part in this event and asking if they will donate. We also have a fantastic prize pool and every $10 donated to your account will give you an additional chance to win something!

*We would love you to come and experience RGT with us and close out the Tour in some group rides. However if you would like to complete the Tour just on SYSTM, you can Ride the To Get To The Other Side workout there and still get your Wahooligan Tour 2023 Badge.
