Rally for the Y


Expresso Riders Unite! Ride to Raise Money and Awareness for Your Y!

The Rules: Get on the Expresso Bike and ride as many miles as you can! Your friends and family will be able to pledge to your ride. Pledges can be fixed or based on how many miles you ride during the event with all proceeds going to the Y. Register online at RallyForTheY.com to receive your personal Rally for the Y pledge link. Share this link to raise awareness and gather support.

Individual & Team Prizes: Riders who raise $100 or more will earn a Rally Badge and will be entered into a lottery for a chance to win an extra $1,000 for their Y. Riders under the age of 20 who earn their badge will be entered into a second Youth Lottery for a chance to win $500 for their Y. Expresso will donate an extra $0.10/mile to each participating Y.* At the end of the event, Expresso will donate an additional $1,000 to the top money-raising team. 

More Details: 1. No more than one rider per ID. If it’s determined that more than one rider has used the same ID for the event, then that rider will be disqualified from the challenge and the totals will be removed from the team totals. 2. For a ride count, it must be started and finished during the challenge. 3. Bikes must be connected to the Internet with eLive and all rides must be reported directly from the bike. Neither team nor individual totals will be adjusted for rides not reported by the bikes, crashes, flat tires, missed workouts, or any other downtime. *Your YMCA will receive a donation from Expresso if the team’s total number of pledge donations yields $25 or more.
