Why do I need to submit a commitment response?

When you registered for Team In Training, you committed to raising lifesaving funds in return for your participation in the America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride event weekend. Your commitment response will let your Team In Training staff know your decision to complete or drop from the season. If you choose to continue the season, you are pledging to LLS to meet your fundraising commitment and participate in your event.

After you submit your commitment and reservations, LLS will begin to confirm your event weekend arrangements.

Fundraising amounts vary depending on team benefits selected such as the no hotel option. Fundraising Commitment Levels are available with the options listed below.

    When do I need to reach my Fundraising Commitment Amount?

    For the America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride, your personal Team In Training fundraising account must contain, at a minimum, the Fundraising Commitment Amount you selected and confirmed during commitment, by 11:59 p.m. PT on Monday, June 3, 2019. In the event your fundraising commitment amount has not been reached by this time, the credit card you securely provide during commitment will be charged for the difference between what you have raised and the fundraising commitment amount you agreed to raise.

    What if I can no longer participate with Team In Training?

    If you are unable to commit, there will be a link in the invitation email for you to click on. This will let us know you’ll be discontinuing your participation this season and will save you from receiving reminder emails and calls in the future regarding this event.

    What if I commit to Team In Training and then have a conflict that prevents me from completing the event?

    If you need to discontinue your participation in the Team In Training program after commitment for any reason other than injury, deployment, or pregnancy, you are still responsible for your full fundraising commitment. If you cannot continue with the program due to injury, deployment, or pregnancy, a doctor's note or copy of military orders must be submitted to defer to a future Team In Training event (within one calendar year). In addition, 25% of your fundraising commitment must remain in your current event account. At the time you defer, if you have not raised at least 25% of your fundraising commitment, the credit card you securely provide during commitment will be charged for the difference between what you have raised and 25% of the fundraising commitment amount you selected.


    How do I obtain my event entry for the America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride?

    If you are obtaining your event entry through Team In Training, we will secure your event entry on your behalf.


    What is an Inspiration Dinner?

    The Inspiration Dinner is a time for your teammates, coaches, mentors, honored teammates, and staff to come together and celebrate all that you have accomplished this season. All fundraising team members receive one complimentary ticket.

    When and where will it be?

    Can guests attend Inspiration Dinner?

    When completing event weekend reservations, you can choose to purchase additional tickets. You will be required to pay for these tickets when submitting your event weekend reservations.


    Where are we staying?

    If your fundraising commitment level includes a hotel stay, the majority of the team will stay at Harvey's Lake Tahoe, but due to the size of the team, a few chapters have been assigned to Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel. As we get closer to the event date, a list with each chapter's assigned hotel will be posted on the hotel tab.

    Depending on the Fundraising Commitment Level you selected, you may receive a two or three night hotel stay with a Team In Training roommate. If you prefer to have a room to yourself or share with non-Team In Training guest(s), you may pay for the other half of your room.

    Who will I be rooming with?

    As a Team In Training team member your fundraising covers half the room rate. If you opt to have your own room, you will be responsible for paying half the room rate each night of your stay . The room options available to you are as follows:

    • No Room Needed:  You will need to make your own reservations for the event weekend.
    • Own Room:  You do not wish to share your room with another Team In Training team member since you would like your own room and/or are bringing guests. You will be responsible for paying half the room rate per night at the end of the reservation process.
      • Will you be sharing your room with any guests? If yes, you will be asked to provide the names of your guests. (max 4)
    • Team In Training Roommate: If you and a Team In Training teammate would like to be paired as roommates, you BOTH must enter the other person in the roommate question in order for the system to pair you. 
      • Please make sure ahead of time that your desired roommate knows to put your name and chapter down.
    • If you would like Team In Training to assign you a roommate, check the box for staff to assign you a roommate and Team In Training will match you with another person of the same gender who also indicated they would like a Team In Training roommate. 
    How do I check into my hotel room?

    All rooms are reserved under each teammate's name. To check into your room you will just need to provide your name and photo ID to the front desk. The hotel will also require your credit card to keep on file for incidental charges (room service, parking, etc.)
