ONLINE PRE-REGISTRATION FOR RIDES – Easier than Ever!
Thunder Roads Ohio has teamed up with ReasonsToRide.com to offer event organizers and riding organizations the ability to offer riders and bike show exhibitors the ability to quickly and easily register in advance of shows and rides.
In 2020, RTR introduced a new system that allowed riders to simply and easily sign up for events without ever leaving the event website – and without having to register on another service. Pre-registration allows organizers to more accurately plan and prepare for the event by having a listing of participants already committed to it. And in return, many organizers offered discounts and extra incentives – such as FREE T-shirts – to riders making the early pledge.
Many ride organizers reported that their 2020 rides went easier and had better attendance than ever using the RtR system – and RtR has kicked things up even more for 2021 with DIGITAL CHECK-IN and TICKET SCANNING!
This new system allows hosts to quickly and easily scan in riders using scanners provided by RtR or simply their own phones or ipads. Hundreds and even thousands of riders can quickly and easily be scanned in by just a few people using this system.
This SAME system was initially designed by RtR Developers to handle concert and music festival tickets and has proven itself efficient and reliable over the last 5 years – processing over $5 MILLION in ticket sales.
Riders and event organizers can check out the system by heading to ReasonsToRide.com and selecting EVENT TICKETS at the top of the page. For more information on hosting your upcoming RIDE REGISTRATION or offering DIGITAL TICKETING / SCANNING – email Events@ReasonsToRide.com
