DRT rider registration form

Class descriptions
Citizen Class: For those who are excited about proving the relevance of cargo bikes to disaster relief but have no interest in extreme performance. Riders in this class are in it for fun and adventure. A spirited hustle.

Open Class: For those who are interested in pushing the performance of body and machine. How fast can you and your vehicle go?

Electric Assist Class: For those of you who want to take it to the next level. Riders in this class must bring a dead battery (or multiple dead batteries) to the secure solar-charging station the day before to demonstrate power grid independence. E-class riders will visit one extra Checkpoint, transport one extra piece of gear, and conquer one extra hill.

Volunteer Registration
Cargo Enthusiasts! Volunteers are needed to make this year’s Fair & Trails a reality. If you want to help beforehand, out on the course, or at OMSI, we have a job for you . . . there’s all kinds of ways to help out, just fill out our handy online form.
