IBA Party Ride-In
For riders choosing to ride their own ride to the party, the MTF will offer end witness services in Jacksonville. For riders riding a pre-planned route, the MTF will provide both begin and end witness services. For all riders, the MTF will offer validation services in Jacksonville. If your ride passes validation, we will submit your ride to the IBA for certification. To make the process even easier for all riders, we will accept and make a copy of your paperwork in Jacksonville.
Current pre-planned routes include:
Additional pre-planned routes are in the works. If you'd like to organize and promote a pre-planned route, please send an email to Jason Jonas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In years past the IBA Party has been restricted to IBA members only, but this year it's open to all IBA members as well as MTF members and Ride-In participants. Seats for the party are restricted to only those who are registered. These tickets will go quickly so please click the "IBA Party Details" link in the menu above and secure your IBA Party reservations as soon as possible. You can register for the Ride-In by clicking the "Register" link.
One way or another, we hope you decide to join the party in Jacksonville. Mike and Lisa have organized another doozey!
Group riding typically refers to large groups of bikes riding together in a pack. MTF Long Distance rides are not "group rides." Rather, each ride is a "mass ride." Mass ride is a term coined and used in the long distance community and refers to a ride where all riders start from the same location, begin at roughly the same time, follow the same route and end the ride at the same destination.
For various reasons the MTF does not encourage groups of more than three riders while particpating in an MTF Long Distance event. The major reasons deal with safety, but in the end, each rider makes his/her own decision to ride with others or not. If you're riding with others, here are some things to consider:
