Two Rides, Two Life-Changing Events!

The Midwest / Wisconsin:  August 23-25, 2013
Signature 2-Day Ride:
140 miles with an option for back-to-back century rides
Join us on Friday evening and ride with us on Saturday and Sunday.  Ride 140 miles, 170 miles, or add a century loop on both days for 200 fully supported miles.
NEW: 1-Day Cycling Option:
62.5 miles with an option for a century ride
Join us on Saturday afternoon and ride with us on Sunday. You can choose 62.5 or 100 fully supported miles.
In order to participate in our century option on either day, you must average more than 15mph over varied terrain.
Don’t want to ride?  Join our volunteer support crew from Friday evening through Sunday and become an integral part of this supportive community while providing the backbone of the event.
Each of GYGIG’s fully supported Rides provides two overnight camps with indoor accommodations where participants stop to relax, build lifelong friendships, and recharge with catered meals and hot showers.  GYGIG provides route support, including fully-stocked rest stops, sweep vehicles, and baggage transport.
Get Your Guts in Gear’s riders and enthusiastic volunteer crew participate – and keep coming back – because they find physical strength and emotional resolve they never knew they had, and are awarded with an accomplishment they can share with their new friends long after the Ride is over.  These cycling events offer the IBD and ostomy communities a positive, life-altering experience in their journey.  Participants also draw support from fellow riders, many of whom are touched in some way by inflammatory bowel disease or who have had ostomy surgery.
For the full 2- Day Ride, rider registration is $85, with a fundraising minimum of $1,250 per event.
For the 1-Day cycling option, rider registration is $65, with a fundraising minimum of $650 per event.
For crew members, registration is $85, and fundraising is optional, but supported and encouraged.
Fundraising supports Get Your Guts in Gear, Inc. as well as the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, the United Ostomy Associations of America, and Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness, Inc.— organizations committed to supporting patients, conducting research for inflammatory bowel disease, and raising awareness.

  1. My life is beautiful thanks to you, Mein Helfer. Lord Jesus in my life as a candle light in the darkness. You showed me the meaning of faith with your words. I know that even when I cried all day thinking about how to recover, you were not sleeping, you were dear to me. I contacted the herbal center Dr Itua, who lived in West Africa. A friend of mine here in Hamburg is also from Africa. She told me about African herbs but I was nervous. I am very afraid when it comes to Africa because I heard many terrible things about them because of my Christianity. god for direction, take a bold step and get in touch with him in the email and then move to WhatsApp, he asked me if I can come for treatment or I want a delivery, I told him I wanted to know him I buy ticket in 2 ways to Africa To meet Dr. Itua, I went there and I was speechless from the people I saw there. Patent, sick people. Itua is a god sent to the world, I told my pastor about what I am doing, Pastor Bill Scheer. We have a real battle beautifully with Spirit and Flesh. Adoration that same night. He prayed for me and asked me to lead. I spent 2 weeks and 2 days in Africa at Dr Itua Herbal Home. After the treatment, he asked me to meet his nurse for the HIV test when I did it. It was negative, I asked my friend to take me to another nearby hospital when I arrived, it was negative. I was overwhite with the result, but happy inside of me. We went with Dr. Itua, I thank him but I explain that I do not have enough to show him my appreciation, that he understands my situation, but I promise that he will testify about his good work. Thank God for my dear friend, Emma, I know I could be reading this now, I want to thank you. And many thanks to Dr. Itua Herbal Center. He gave me his calendar that I put on my wall in my house.
