“I couldn’t have asked more. We truly are blessed to be able to send our child to such an amazing camp. The counselors were awesome. Our son felt very close to them as they had a lot in common. I couldn’t thank them enough! When you go pick up your child and his face has a smile ear-to-ear and he says, ‘This year was even better than last!’ you know as a parent, God is present.”

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I register?

You should complete your bikeathon reservation before July 13, 2018 in order to be eligible for a free jersey.

Registrations can still be completed after that date, however, the cool BR2RB jersey will not be available.

 

What deposit is required to reserve a spot?

A $50 deposit is required when making a reservation, along with a commitment to raise or donate an additional $200 or more.

What is the bikeathon reservation process?

You can complete the online registration or contact us by email or phone at (717) 529-3232 or (800) 858-9299.  Once you’ve paid the $50 non-refundable registration fee, we’ll order a jersey for you, hold you a spot on bus for return transportation, and add your name to the meal count. In addition to the $50 registration fee, all riders are required to donate or raise an additional $200 or more to cover the cost of the event.  Any monies raised over and above the costs of this event will support the ministries of Black Rock Retreat including our Summer Camp for children.

Can I ride with a group?

Riders are encouraged to invite friends to join them in this ride.  Even if all riders are not riding the same distance, all riders of any distance will end at the same location Camp Arrowhead, so you can all celebrate your accomplishments together.  If you are not able to bring a friend, be encouraged that BR2RB bikeathon riders are a friendly bunch and welcome other riders to join their group for encouragement and support.  The key to making this a win-win for everyone is to find a group that rides at your same pace.

Can I provide my own transportation back home?

Some riders have friends or family drive to Camp Arrowhead to meet them and give them a ride back home.  If you will not need return transportation, please let us know, e-mail or call us at (717) 529-3232 or (800) 858-9299.
