How much does it cost?
The entry fee for the 2019 Brickyard to Bridge is $1,500 and the Brickyard 123 is $200. Every profitable dollar, beyond the expenses of the ride itself, goes toward the ministry of YFCI. Many riders choose to raise these funds, as it is a tax-deductible donation. Please contact us if you have questions about donating or fund raising.
Where and when is it?
The 2019 Brickyard to Bridge will be July 20-24. The trip will begin the morning of the 20th at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and finish at the Mackinac Bridge in Mackinaw City, MI on the 24th. Please contact us for more information on the route.
The Brickyard 123 will share the same route and start time as the five day ride. Please contact us for more information on the route and participation.

When did this event originate?
The inaugural Brickyard to Bridge was in 2012. This year will be the seventh annual ride.
Is food provided?
Food is provided. Part of the entry fee for the event covers all food needed throughout the duration of the event including drinks and snacks in the S.A.G. vehicle as well as lunches and dinners. Riders are encouraged to bring their own personal nutrition for cycling. Please contact us with any questions.
Where do you sleep?
Each night of the Brickyard to Bridge, riders will have a hotel room (shared with another rider). Please contact us for more details if you are interested in participating.
How do I get home?
Unfortunately, we are not able to coordinate rides home for every cyclist. Each participant will be responsible for his or her own way home after completing the ride. Participants are encouraged to coordinate with other riders on carpooling.
Why is it so expensive to participate?
The Brickyard to Bridge exists first and foremost to raise funds for Youth for Christ International. The expenses of the five day trip include hotels, lunch, dinner, and supplies for the S.A.G. vehicle. All time dedicated to the event is volunteered. The entry fee is set to have enough margin to generously bless Youth for Christ International's efforts in a South Asian country. Please visit our mission page or contact us to learn more about why we ride.
What if I don't have a road bike?
We are excited you're interested in riding! Unfortunately, we do not offer any bike rentals, and riders should be experienced and comfortable riding their own road bike.
