The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

registration issues

I have been trying to register since last night with no luck. I already have a username and password from numerous years past and it doesn’t recognize it and then I try to create a new one and it says I need to be logged in to do that, WTH?? anyone register since last night?

pj – Your username and password for this forum should not be the same as the registration login username and password.

I know that thangamalang, that is why I made a point of saying I have registered for several years, in the hopes people would realize I am not an idiot, just a slight blonde not a full blonde

I would never judge you, I just met you. I had to create a new username and password last year(2012). My old ones would not work from 2010 and before. If you did not register last year, you may have to create a new registration profile.

My guess is the site is overwhelmed with activity as I was able to log in recently but username not recognized today.. Will try again later!

There must be some issues with the registration portal. I just tried to log in to check who else in my group had registered and my username was not recognized either (and I registered about a week ago). Could be a website problem….

Same issue. 2012 credentials were not recognized. Any downside to just starting over with a new sign on?

I just couldn’t remember my sign in so I hit that button and they sent me new stuff. Same username as 2010 and I could set up a new password. Simple.

Having the same problem…says to login but username doesn’t come back as recognized/valid. I guess I’ll wait for a few hours.

The Registration site is not working. Had the same problems when I just wanted to check into the status of our group and see how many had registered so far. Maybe it’s been swamped – this “shortest route ever” thing is going to be bringing people out of the woodwork.

We are having the same issues. It won’t let me register under my old (last year and before) name and password, NOR will it let me register as a new rider. Ugh. I do hope its because the site is overwhelmed.
