About Us

Get Your Guts in Gear (GYGIG) is an independent, national, not-for-profit organization that raises awareness of Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and related conditions through multi-day cycling events that benefit and support inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) organizations and patient advocacy groups. GYGIG creates and produces well-organized, participant-centric events so that participants feel empowered, accomplished, and part of a greater community. Since creating and producing its first Ride in 2004, GYGIG has raised over $1.5 million in proceeds to support empowerment, research, awareness, and advocacy efforts for people with IBD and ostomies.

Each of GYGIG’s Rides is a new opportunity to connect with patients, family, and friends who are affected by Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Join in the fun this year as a volunteer or take a stand for empowerment by taking a seat on a bike. Come along for the Ride!

Whether you are an experienced cyclist looking for a great ride for a worthy cause or a novice rider who is affected by one of these diseases, you’ll enjoy our scenic, fully supported rides.
