Trust me, you're going to get much more than whats listed, from your day at the Chino Grinder!


Outside of registering prior to 06/01/22 under 'Reservation', there are NO REFUNDS.  No exceptions.  We understand things happen or come up and that is why we encourage you to purchase the Insurance offered on BikeReg.  Participant Registration Insurance – Alllianz Registration Protection. Bikereg offers Allianz Registration Protection to participants registering for the Chino Grinder (cost is approximately $8.00). Allianz Registration Protector gives you an opportunity to get reimbursed for up to 100% of your entry if you can’t attend the event for a qualifying reason. Claims are handled entirely by Allianz Global Assistance.


There is no charge for a category transfer unless the category you are transferring into is more expensive than the one you are currently in. If a category you would like to transfer into is not available it is because that category is full, or no longer available. Category transfers are allowed starting August 5th and ending midnight September 15th. Instructions will be provided at that time.
