Registration Opens April 1st, 2024! 

About the Ride
Cyclists from all over gather at Stewart Park in Ithaca NY to Ride around Cayuga Lake while fully supported by a contingent of volunteers at the seven pitstops placed strategically around the lake! Riders will also be assisted by vehicle safety and gear support, bike repair techs, a lunch pitstop at the halfway point, and a great celebration to follow at the finish line! You can also register for smaller routes instead of the 90 or 100 miles around the lake, we have smaller options ranging between 14 to 42 miles that begin at specific pitstops and require a short bus ride from Stewart Park.

Registering for the Ride starts at $25 when registration opens on April 1st, 2024 and will periodically increase as the event gets closer, this fee goes towards Rider amenities and event costs. Additionally, we ask all riders that are 22 and older to fundraise $200 in order to participate on Ride day, younger riders (21 and under) are asked to fundraise a minimum of $100; all money raised by our Riders goes back to STAP to fill the gaps in the funding required to serve folks living with HIV/AIDS, others with two or more chronic illnesses, people who are LGBTQ+ Youth at Identity Youth Center, or Syringe Exchange participants. All registered riders will get their own fundraising page as well as some tools to help them fundraise including the ability to create their own fundraising events, the ability to text their donors thank you, livestream fundraising, and more!

About Hair Warz
Hair Warz is an annual avant-garde hairstyling event where skilled stylists engage in a creative competition to showcase their unique and innovative hairstyling talents. The event is characterized by its runway-style showcase, wherein models present the meticulously crafted hairstyles to an audience and a panel of distinguished judges.

Stylists participating in Hair Warz invest months of dedicated preparation to conceptualize and execute avant-garde hairstyles that push the boundaries of traditional hairstyling. The event does not involve live hairstyling on-site; instead, participants complete their artistic creations beforehand, and the finished looks are then presented on the runway.

A notable aspect of Hair Warz is the esteemed panel of judges, comprised of renowned hair masters who evaluate and critique the hairstyles based on creativity, originality, and technical skill. This competitive element adds a layer of excitement and prestige to the event, encouraging stylists to push their creative limits.

In addition to the hairstyling showcase, Hair Warz offers a dynamic and engaging entertainment program. While the judges deliberate on the winning entries, the audience is treated to performances by singers, drag queens, and dancers. This interlude provides a lively and entertaining atmosphere, enhancing the overall experience for attendees.

The combination of avant-garde hairstyling, expert judging, and captivating entertainment establishes Hair Warz as a distinctive and memorable event within the beauty and fashion industry. The event seeks to celebrate and elevate the artistry of hairstyling.
