WKNC’s Radio Ride is an alleycat-style bike ride and scavenger hunt around the NC State campus and downtown Raleigh. With consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic, the sixth annual Radio Ride will not be held in the fall 2020 semester.

Sign up to Ride

Interested participants can sign up online at our swag store. Registration is $10 in advance and $15 the day of the event. Those unable to participate can sign up as “virtual riders” for a $10 donation. Sign up is currently closed.

Win Prizes

Prizes for the top finishers and raffle prizes include donated items from local businesses.

Liability Waiver

All participants MUST complete a liability waiver before being allowed to ride. Forms will be available on site. Those under 18 will need signed permission from a parent or guardian. Download the liability waiver (PDF).
