Status: The date for the event has not yet been confirmed.

The Midwest Cycle Club has teamed up with USA Cycling and the MDA to put together this annual charity bike ride. This is a timed non-competitive road cycling event.

This is a USA Cycling sanctioned Gran Fondo. Each rider will be covered under USA Cycling's liability insurance policy. Riders will not be required to have or purchase a USA cycling license? to participate. However, CAT 5 license holders will receive 1 point for completing the event.

The Ride for Ray mission has always been to first and foremost raise money and awareness for ALS. Your registration fee helps to cover the cost of the event. Once that obligation has been met, all proceeds along with any additional donations will go to the MDA in honor of Ray Spooner. If you would like to make a donation of $250 or more, please send a check payable to the MDA and mark it Ride for Ray in the memo section and send it to MDA 102 E Main St #201, Urbana, IL 61801.
