When is Pelotonia Weekend?
Pelotonia weekend is August 6-8, 2021.
Will Ride Weekend be in person or virtual this year?
We're committed to hosting a world-class, in-person event for the Pelotonia community in 2021. We have spent much of the last year working with experts and putting plans in place to deliver the experience you deserve under new safety and health protocols. Safety will always be our first priority, and we’re excited to bring an unforgettable experience to you this year. We also have great ways for people to get involved virtually by setting their own goals as a Challenger.
What safety measures are you taking during Ride Weekend in response to COVID-19?
The Pelotonia team, in collaboration with our partners at The James and the Wexner Medical Center, are putting plans in place to protect participants to the best of our ability. Stay up-to-date on this year's health & safety protocols on our Safety Page.

The minimum age to ride will continue to be 14; however, any age can participate in Pelotonia as a Challenger.

first need to determine if your employer accepts matching gifts. Utilize the search tool on the
