What is a Custom Ride?

The typical custom rider is someone who wants to be part of the Empire State Ride, but cannot participate for the whole week due to a hectic schedule or responsibilities. When you join as a Custom Rider, you can decide when, where and how long you want to ride. You can choose a city along the full route and meet the Empire State Riders there for that leg of the journey. Ride for as many days as you want!

How Do I Become a Custom Rider?

Just complete the normal registration process. When you’re asked to select a registration option, choose the second option – “Custom Ride.” There is a $100 registration fee and a $750/day fundraising minimum for Custom Riders.

No matter how you commit to being part of The Empire State Ride, you’re raising funds for life-changing programs and research endeavors at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.
