I’m not able to race, can I volunteer in any way?
We really welcome volunteers. We are severely short staffed during the race as well as before and after the race. We give every volunteer a infant thermometer as a gift.
I have just registered for ‘Race’! Now, what?
Now comes the tough part! Start training for it!! After you register for an event, we will see to it that you are assigned a jersey number and we will inform you a week in advance about the scheduled race and give you details like place, time, type of event etc. Typically we also send a follow-up email a few days later which has driving/riding directions to reach the start point. And on race day, you match your skills with the other bikers in Namma Bangalore!!
I’ve been slightly late in joining the BBCh train. Can I start racing mid-season?
Of course, you can start racing whenever you feel like it. You will start accumulating points as and when you start racing.
I don’t intend racing anymore, how do I take my name off the riders list?
That is an unfortunate thing to happen! Nevertheless, please send an email to email@example.com requesting your name to be removed and we will update the records.
Please note that your jersey number will be allotted to the next newbie in line and in case you come back to the racing circuit it will not be possible to give you the same number.
How do I contact the concerned people for further clarifications, comments, suggestions etc?
