I am an Active Trans member, Do I Get Anything Special? 

Yes! Active Trans members receive a $5 discount on event registration. Not a member yet? You can add a membership to your registration. 

Stop by the Active Transportation Alliance tent at the post-ride festival, we'd love to meet you.

We'll have goodies to thank you for your continued support, and news on recent victories for biking, walking, and transit. 

What Does the Registration Fee Go Toward?

Your fee pays for the event's costs. The event's costs include permits and food, route closures and police barricades, toilets and tents, and countless other items and services. We would not be able to produce this event if your registration fee did not offset the costs.

Donations and remaining proceeds from Kickstand Classic support the Active Transportation Alliance's work to make the region better for biking, walking, and transit. We have been making cycling better for 30 years. Learn more about our mission and work. 

Is the Event Accessible to Everyone? 

Yes, anyone and everyone! Kickstand Classic is for adult cyclists of every kind, age, and ability. We want to ensure your participation. If you have special needs and would like to request accommodations at the event, please contact our Registration Manager, Sean Blay at 312-967-1016.

 I'm Having Trouble Registering Online.

How Do I Know My Registration Was Received? 

There are three ways to confirm that your registration was received!

Immediate email update: When you submit your registration online, a confirmation screen will appear. You will receive an email confirmation entitled "Thank You for Registering for Kickstand Classic" Other adults in your registration purchase will receive the message, "Someone has Registered You for Kickstand Classic”

If these emails are not received immediately, please check your SPAM folder and/or confirm that you entered the correct email address when registering.

Final Receipt: On the Thursday afternoon following your online registration, expect an itemized receipt emailed to you for your records. Thank you for your patience while your receipt is processed.

Your credit card charge will show on your bank statement: Specifically, starting a few hours after the transaction is processed, the charge on your credit/debit card will appear as "ATA**Kickstand Classic". It will say that because Active Transportation Alliance is the nonprofit organization that produces and benefits from this event (in short, we use 'ATA').

Questions? Contact Sean Blay, Events Registration manager at kickstandclassic@activetrans.org or by phone at 312-967-1016.

Can I have a refund? 

No, registration for Kickstand Classic is non-refundable. All proceeds from the event support the nonprofit Active Transportation Alliance's work to make Chicagoland safer and more fun for all transportation users. The event will be held rain or shine.
