When and where are the 2021 YSC Tour de Pink events?
The 2021 YSC Tour de Pink Lisa J. Frank Memorial events will be single day rides.
East – Sunday, October 3 with the start/finish at Jenkinson’s Inlet
in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ
West- Saturday, October 23 with the start/finish at San Buenaventura Beach
in Ventura, CA
What are the COVID-19 restrictions?
YSC Tour de Pink will comply with prevailing local COVID-19 regulations at the time of the event. We will follow CDC guidelines and best health practices to mitigate any exposure during the rides. The safety of our riders and TDP community is our greatest concern, and we will update everyone as soon as possible if there are changes necessary.
What are the registration fees?
Early-bird registration is $75 for anyone who registers before August 15, 2021. The registration fee after August 15th is $100. Registration fees are non-refundable, non-transferable and do not count towards a participant’s fundraising minimum.
Is there a fundraising minimum?
Yes, there is a minimum. All riders commit to raising $1,000 to go to Young Survival Coalition
, the largest nonprofit dedicated exclusively to providing education, support and community to young adults impacted by breast cancer. This year, there is not Team Fundraising. You can still join a team, but each rider will need to raise at least $1,000 to ride in Tour de Pink.
What’s different this year?
So much! But the supportive community and joyful vibe has not changed. First, we have renamed the entire event to the YSC Tour de Pink Lisa J. Frank Memorial ride to honor Lisa J. Frank, TDP co-founder and young survivor who passed away in 2020.
This year is also now a 1-day ride instead of 3 days. To ride in TDP, each rider will need to raise the $1,000 minimum by the event date in order to ride in Tour de Pink.
What is included in my registration fee?
Once you reach your fundraising minimum, the registration fee provides amenities during the ride including branded jersey, YSC Tour de Pink t-shirt, printed bib, pre-ride snacks, fully stocked rest stops and a post-ride celebratory lunch.
How many routes are available to ride?
This year, we are excited to offer a 20-mile, 36-mile and a 62-mile ride.
There will be a staggered start time for each route. Should you choose and if time allows, you can combine routes for longer distances. Note that there may not be immediate support services available if you combine routes. Refer to the Event Details section of the website for East and West for more detailed route information.
How difficult are the routes?
Remember, YSC Tour de Pink is a RIDE, not a race. This means you should ride at your own pace. Time will not be kept, nor are any prizes awarded for finishing first. Even without timed routes, all cyclists should train before participating. Refer to All Things Bikes for training information.
Is the event held rain or shine?
Yes. In the event of dangerous conditions (i.e. lightning, flooding, etc.) we will delay or cancel the event as appropriate.
Yes, you can ride on your own during any of the rides.
How do I join a team or start my own team?
You can search already existing teams from the website under FIND A TEAM. YSC Tour de Pink is a welcoming community, and many teams would be happy to have additional riders. You can also start your own team
and recruit your friends and family to join you.
Please note this year there is no Team Fundraising. Each rider must raise at least $1,000 to ride.
Does each person on my team need to register separately?
Yes, each person registers separately.
Is there an age restriction to ride on your own?
Yes. You must be 18 years or older to ride in TDP. Unfortunately, anyone under the age of 18 will not be allowed to ride even if they have registered.
Will bikes be given to survivors?
Unfortunately, this year we do not have survivor bikes available. However, we will have bikes to rent at both TDP East and TDP West. Learn more at All Things Bikes

Will lunch and refreshments refreshments be provided?
Yes! Ride appropriate snacks (bars, fruit etc.) and beverages (water, sports drink) will be available before, during and after the ride.
A catered post-ride lunch/party is included with your registration. If you'd like to bring someone who is not riding, you can purchase additional lunch tickets (coming soon).
Can I bring guests to lunch?
Yes! Additional lunches can be purchased as the event gets closer. We’ll send out a notification once meal tickets are available to purchase.
Are there rest stops and other support?
During the ride, there will be 1-3 rest stops depending on the length of your route. Rest stops are prepared with food and beverage, as well as mechanical and medical assistance. The routes are well marked with event signage. SAG vans (support and gear vehicles) will also patrol the route to provide assistance, if necessary. Law enforcement will work to ensure rider safety on the road.
Will there be ride marshals on the roads in case I have a problem with my bike or I need assistance?
Yes, we will have both ride marshals and SAG vans (support and gear vehicles) to assist while you are out on the road.
