2021 Participation Options

2021 Participation Options

The Tri-State Trek offers several options to accommodate varying abilities and fundraising levels. This year, we are offering three unique registration options: In-Person Tri-State Trek, Virtual Tri-State Trek, or Trek Your Way. In order to observe COVID-19 restrictions in the state of Massachusetts and respect the need for social distancing, we will be offering a condensed version of the traditional Tri-State Trek for 2021.

The In-Person Tri-State Trek is a fully stocked, 100 mile experience designed to offer experienced cyclists an unforgettable weekend of athleticism, comradery and dedication to ending ALS. The In-Person century ride will take place on Saturday, June 26, 2021 and feature the new ALS TDI lab in Watertown as the Start and Finish Race Line. As we anticipate having more registrants than spots available, in an effort to offer equal opportunity to all who wish to join the live event, ALS TDI will be holding a drawing to select 2021 in-person participants. Deadline to enter the drawing by registering is April 16, 2021. Registrations not selected in the drawing will be automatically placed in the Virtual Tri-State Trek unless otherwise indicated.

*Please note, we will be following strict protocols to ensure the safety of each individual and the community. All participants, cyclists and crew members are required to follow our strict requirements including daily temperature checks, standing 6 feet apart and our “Feet on the Ground” protocol: When not actively cycling or eating, all must wear protective face masks covering nose and mouth. To maximize appropriate social distancing, this event will be held entirely outdoors and all meals will be catered as “grab and go”. Sanitation stations and resources will be on-site to ensure a clean and sanitized gathering. Additional guidelines may be added and mandated by ALS TDI based on recommendations by the CDC. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will not be able to allow spectators or guests of any kind at this year's in-person event.

Important Note on Teams
Please note, those selected in the drawing are awarded an individual slot for the in-person event, not a slot for a team. Priority will be given to cyclists who have historically participated in the annual Trek. If given the opportunity to open the event up to additional cyclists, we will do so. That said, we still want Trek teams to register and fundraise together this year. We encourage team members who are not selected for the in-person event to ride with us through the Virtual Trek.

Virtual Tri-State Trek participants can choose to ride in their homes using a stationary bike/trainer or ride outdoors while practicing social distancing. Riders can cycle up to 270 miles to replicate the traditional Tri-State Trek mileage from Boston to Greenwich, or they can choose the shorter 2021 ride option of 100 miles. While not required, we encourage all participants to log their rides on Strava as a way to connect with others, compete with friends, and enjoy the virtual company of your Trek family!

Not a cyclist? No problem! We've added the Trek Your Way participation option so that you can get involved in whatever way you want! Get creative! As a Trek Your Way participant you can choose to ride, walk, run - Whatever you like! The Trek Your Way option allows for total flexibility and makes it easy for anyone at any age or stage to get involved!
