Fundo Onsite Registration Information
Online registration has closed, but we will have onsite registration at the Edgewater Park Beach House beginning at 7am on Saturday, September 7th. Please carefully read the information below to ensure you have a fantastic day of riding!
For information about the ride itself, please head to our Fundo Homepage.
GETTING TO EDGEWATER PARK & PARKING
We always encourage people to ride down if possible, so if you do the W76th and W65th pedestrian tunnels are open if you’re coming from the Detroit-Shoreway area. Car parking will be available at Edgewater Park on Saturday with most being available in the paved lot and overflow in the grassy area to the east. We don’t anticipate parking being an issue this early in the day, so simply follow the instructions from the parking crew and Metroparks Police at the site.
When you arrive at Edgewater Park please proceed to the On-Site Registration area on the upper level bar of the Beach House to sign the necessary waiver and get your official bib number. Your bib number will have your food voucher attached. DO NOT lose this! We recommend detaching it and placing it somewhere secure until after the ride. Riders can register from 7:00am-10:30am upstairs at the Edgewater Park Beach House. Please arrive about 1 hour before your suggested start time (listed below).
Save time at check in by pre-printing your waiver NOW and bringing it (signed) with you!

RIDE START LOCATION AND IMPORTANT TIMES
All routes start and end at Edgewater Park on Saturday, September 7th. The start times for the different distances are as follows:

It is important that you start during your designated time to ensure we have volunteers, aid stations, and SAG vehicles in place at the right time to support your ride – and that you have post-ride support available. We ask that all riders complete the ride no later than 4pm and join us back at Edgewater Park for food using the voucher located on your ride bib number. The rest stop for the 10 and 30 mile route located at Abbey Road Overlook will close at Noon. The last rest stop for the 60 mile route is located at South Mastick Area in the Cleveland Metroparks and will close at 3:00pm.
PRE RIDE CHECK
If you haven’t already, make sure to go over your bicycle BEFORE the morning of the ride. If you’re not comfortable working on your bicycle, take it to a bike shop ASAP to make sure it’s good to go. We recommend conducting an “ABC Quick Check” the night before the ride which goes as follows:
Air: Make sure your tires are inflated properly by consulting the recommended pressure printed on the sidewall of your tires.
Brakes: Make sure your brakes work properly, and that the pads are contacting the rim square and even without rubbing on the rubber of the tire. The hand lever should not pull all the way to the handlebar. Aim for roughly a thumb width of space between the handlebars and the brake lever when at maximum pull.
Chain: Make sure your chain is lubed correctly and your gears work. There are a few rolling hills on the routes and you’ll have more fun if you can get into the right gear quickly and easily.
POST RIDE INFO
Join us back at the Beach House for your post-ride meal that is included with your registration. The Metroparks bar will be available for you to purchase your favorite beverage. The tickets for this is integrated with your bib number. DO NOT lose these! We recommend detaching them and placing them somewhere secure until after the ride. Bike parking will be available at the finish, so be sure to have a lock handy.
