2021 Policies

Refund, Transfer, Deferment, & Cancellations

RPI Sun Valley


Changes may be made to your registration by logging in to your BikeReg account.  Changes and transfers must be completed by August 1st.  Changes may include: 

  • Moving to a different race distance (ie from French Fry to Baked Potato)

  • Transfer your registration to a lucky friend (see below)

  • Updating contact information



The transfer of a registration from one person to another is allowed and a very simple process through your BikeReg account.  The transfer must be completed by August 1st.  All person-to-person transfers can be made by logging into your account on Bike Reg and are at no additional charge.  Changes and transfers must be completed by August 1st.


Rebecca's Private Idaho has a no refund policy. You may either transfer your registration to a lucky friend or donate the fees to the charity fundraiser. 



We will only defer in-person registrations to the 2022 event if we have to cancel the event.  In that event, you may choose to either change your registration to the RPI Remote event or defer it to RPI in person next year. Please see the details below related to cancellation due to COVID-19 health and safety concerns. 

If you received a deferment from the 2020 event, you should have an event credit in your BikeReg account. You may use this credit to sign up for 2021 RPI Sun Valley.  Your space is not guaranteed so make sure you register early.  If you plan to transfer your deferment to friend, register first with your credit and then complete the transfer process listed above. 



Cancellations and refunds for RPI BaseCamp will be given until July 1st. You must contact the team through rpi@rebeccarusch.com for a refund.  Once the program starts, no refunds will be given.



A person signed up for RPI Remote may change to the RPI Sun Valley event. You will need to email us at rpi@rebeccarusch.com so we can get you set up with the proper registration code to credit what you paid for RPI Remote ($49)  Any additional fees will be added and payment will be required to complete the change.

No changes may be made after August 1st. 



Rebecca's Private Idaho has a no refund policy. You may either transfer your registration to a lucky friend or donate the fees to the charity fundraiser. 


The safety and security of our participants, volunteers, partners, community and staff is our top priority. Our RPI team will continue to diligently monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and will follow the guidance issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), state and local officials. Our team will contact all registered riders directly by email and post updates to the RPI Facebook page and the RPI website if any changes to the in person event occur for 2021. 

In the event that Rebecca’s Private Idaho Sun Valley is canceled in 2021 due to concerns/restrictions around COVID-19 (i.e. travel restrictions, restrictions around gatherings of large groups or city, state or nationwide restrictions, etc.) we will continue to operate the RPI Remote event and RPI BaseCamp.

We will offer those registered for in person RPI the following options:

  1. Participants can transfer their registration to the RPI Remote event and receive a refund for the cost difference. 

  2. Participants can defer their full 2021 registration to RPI 2022 for the same race category. No fees will apply.   RPI 2022 will take place September 1-4, 2022. 

  3. Participants can donate their full registration fee to The Be Good Foundation™, in support of our beneficiary programs as well as COVID-19 initiatives that align with The Be Good Foundation™ mission. 

Rules and Ethics

All riders are required to stop by RPI headquarters for Packet Pickup at the Limelight Hotel.  

For the Queen's Stage Race this will be  between 6 and 8 pm on Wednesday, September 1st and on Saturday, September 4th 


Plan to be there to catch the Mandatory Rider Meeting (times will be in the overall schedule) where Rebecca will cover pertinent information for all riders and answer last-minute questions.


Packets include all the important stuff you’ll need in order to participate: your race bib with timing chip, number plate, rider shirt, maps, meal vouchers and more.

Race rules are as follows:

  • Helmets are mandatory. Period.

  • No personal vehicles or follow cars allowed on course.

  • Aid is allowed by fellow riders or RPI event staff only.

  • No e-bikes or pedal assist.

  • You can change your tires for each stage of the race, but you must use the same bike frame for all three stages.

  • No littering - this includes water bottles and other non-organic material.

  • Use the toilets provided. This is a requirement of our permit.


Above all, Be Good and be a Gravel SHARK​

S - Safe. Abide by the rules of the road. Share the road. Keep your speed in check. Your safety is YOUR responsibility and MY priority.


H - Honest. Handle grievances directly and respectfully with the riders and event organizers involved. Do not assume malice and be generous with the benefit of the doubt.

A - Accountable. Offer assistance if you come across another rider with a medical emergency. 

R - Responsible. Headphones are discouraged. If you must, keep the left earpiece out. Be prepared - the course is remote. Carry ample food, water, and maintenance supplies.

K - Kind. Respect all riders, race staff, volunteers, and public. Ride as friends, race as individuals.

The mission of Rebecca's Private Idaho is to connect people, to ride with purpose, and celebrate beautiful places.
