Frequently Asked Questions

About The Remote Ride X CCC Challenge

How can I help to ensure that the critical programs and services continue?
Due to overwhelming support for CCC, we have seized an opportunity to create the Remote Ride Challenge to be known as RR X CCC Challenge presented by Amgen. The Remote Rider option enables us to extend the CCC experience to anyone who cannot join the CCC Tour in person. The RR X CCC offers a way to stay involved with your CCC Family on your terms by riding your favorite local roads or even your trainer.

Should I still train?
Yes, train up to ride 525 or any miles you choose for the RR X CCC 2021. We encourage you to continue riding, as your local guidelines and safety allows, or even ride indoors. Staying connected to other riders will also help you as we will be sharing inspiration and resources to keep you pedaling and also help to keep you connected to your CCC Family.

How can I help?
The best way to support the Arthritis Foundation is to continue to raise funds. The CCC provides a significant and vital funding source for the Foundation. We also work with corporate partners and foundations. The Arthritis Foundation is powered by volunteers and welcomes your help. We would love to talk about how you can give your time, open a door to individuals or organizations who can make a difference or are able to make a major gift.

What events will take place the month of October for the Remote Ride? 
We will have a training challenge for the lead up to the RR X CCC. An app will be made available to track your progress, take on challenges and see the progress of other riders. The RR X CCC will include opportunities to connect with friends and teammates and honor the traditions of the CCC while staying safe and healthy. 

Can I still earn incentives?
Yes, stay tuned for all the awesome gear you can earn!

Will we celebrate Top Fundraisers for the RR?
Our top fundraisers go above and beyond in the fight to conquer arthritis. We are so grateful for their relentless work and leadership. We will celebrate Top Fundraisers during the scheduled week of the ride and the orange 2021 Top Fundraisers jerseys will be sent to our Top Fundraisers Club members who are riding remotely.

How can I stay involved with my CCC Community?
The CCC Leadership Committee will be sending out training challenges and giving you information how to track your progress and giving you information on how to track your progress and stay involved. There will be virtual CCCBYOB events, prize drawings, leaderboards and other opportunities to connect.

Share your RR X CCC miles and success online to keep each other motivated and see what friends are up to. We can’t wait to see where and how you ride! Let’s share videos and pics of how we are making a difference.

I want to volunteer to help the event organizers. Are there any opportunities for me?
YES! Volunteers are essential to the AF and CCC success. We’ll have opportunities for helping in person and things you can do from home. Call or send a note to Shannon Marang Cox 213.634.3772 to see what might be a good fit for you.

What about in-person events?
We are looking at a variety of options to gather once it is safe to do so. Training rides may still continue but we encourage all cyclists to follow the recommendations of their local public health agencies and practice social distancing when deciding whether to train in a group.

I still have questions! Call Shannon at 213-634-3772 to chat.
