Self-Guided Registration

Self-Guided Registration: The DIY Pay-As-You-Go Option

If you register as a self-guided rider, then you are completely connected to us yet totally independent…you’ll pay an event fee to participate, then pick and choose what you want to participate in. This way you only pay for what you’re interested in – not the whole shebang.

After you register, we’ll send you a form on which you can let us know what nights you’ll be with us and your billing details, and we’ll send your booking details directly to our hotels (thereby saving you having to call all 11 hotels). They’ll charge you directly for any deposits and fees and you’re responsible for any changes to your reservations. (Note that because we are in some big cities with lots of events going on at the same time as ours you may have to pay a deposit well in advance – our contract with each hotel is different.) We’ve tried our best to negotiate breakfasts to be included in your discounted room rates, but there will be some hotels where we did not (like those $38 breakfast buffets at big-city hotels) so you can make that choice on your own.

Once you’re registered you’ll be able to find your own roommate (if you want one to help reduce costs) in our closed Facebook Group for Centennial Ride riders.

Self-Guided Registration – What’s Included:

  • Event Fee
  • Hotel Room Reservations (so you don’t have to call all 11 hotels)
  • Route Information
  • Information on and access to any and all “free” events we’ve negotiated along the way
  • Any “free” lunches at dealerships or partner venues along the way
  • Any “free” evening happy hours we’ve negotiated for the entire group
  • Daily Briefings (if desired)
  • Route Book
  • Goodie Bag
  • Centennial Ride Keepsake

Self-Guided Registration – What’s NOT Included:

  • Centennial Ride Experiences
  • Sturgis Biker Belles Registration
  • Women’s Motorcycle Conference
  • Professional Ride Guides who lead you and smooth over obstacles (most are MSF instructors)
  • Chase Vehicle Support
  • Roommate matching service
  • Tips
  • Incidentals at the hotels
  • Accommodations (Hotel rooms)
  • Meals (some breakfasts are included)
  • Breakdown Assistance and Pickup (we strongly suggest you purchase your own)
  • Logistical Support (You carry all your own luggage and schlep it inside the hotel)
  • Automatic Check-in at hotels (keys ready and waiting for will need to check-in and pay yourself)
  • Parking
  • Any event activities
  • Gas
  • Tolls
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Museum entry fees
  • National Park entry fees
Your registration fee includes a $50 donation to Final Salute, Inc., our event charity that supports homeless women veterans.
(As a self-guided rider you will need to register for the Biker Belles Celebration and the  Women’s Motorcycle Festival and Conference if you want to participate in either.)
