Why form a team?
Since the dawn of time, history has shown that humans enjoy doing things together, as part of a group. Therefore, we developed a team program that focuses on this. We provide materials, incentives and staff to help you form and motivate a team. All you need to do is recruit three teammates who want to join in the movement towards a world fee of multiple sclerosis
Teams can consist of friends, family members, co-workers and a variety of other groups. A team is any group of coworkers, fellow students, religious/civic organization members, friends, or family members who pre-register, raise money, and ride together on the weekend of Bike MS.
