Ok I'm tired of the fundraiser requirement on rides. Okay I get the big rides that are two days and thousands of entrants, but there are 12 rides I have seen locally and 10 have fund raising requirements of $250+ and $40-50 entry fees. 3 of the rides do not even offer 60+ mile routes and one will shut down after 4 hours.
If you aren't one of the "big" rides, you really need to think more about the fundraising requirements. Do some of you really ask people every month for donations to ride in these?
