Team FAQ

1.  Can we form teams?  Yes. You can form a new team or join an existing team at the time of registration. If you decide to become a team member after registering, contact the Ride office to make the change to your Ride status.  Return to top.

2.  How can I see and contact who is on my team? Login to your Participant Center using your Username and Password. On the right side, you will see a "Email Team" and "View Team Roster" link.  Return to top.

3.  What is a team message?  Team captains can simply go to your Participant Center and click the edit button under "Message From Your Team Captain". This will allow you to make all necessary changes to your team message.  Return to top.

4.  How do I join or create a team?  If you haven't registered as a Rider or Volunteer for the Ride yet, you may register online using the black and yellow "Register" button/link above, and select “Start a New Team” or "Join an Existing Team." Search for the name of the team you want to join and select it. Or call 651-571-2873 to register and indicate that you would like to join a team. Let us know the team name and we will be happy to get you started.  If you've decided to join or form a team after you've already registered, call 651-571-2873 and let us know so we can update your record.  Return to top.

5.  Can team members share or split donations?  Each team member must raise her or his minimum fundraising requirement on their own, however, team fundraising will be pooled (this "pooling" is tallied offline). An example of "pool your fundraising" is as follows: Team Springsteen has 2 Adult Riders, 1 Minor Rider and 1 volunteer on their team.  As a team, their fundraising minimum they have to meet is $700, which is $350 (Rider #1) + $350 (Rider #2) + $0 (Minor Rider) + $0 (Volunteers are not required to raise funds)=$700. Let's say Rider #1 on Team Johnson raises the entire $700 on his/her personal fundraising page, the entire team will be able to Ride because the team, as a whole, met their fundraising minimum. This calculating is done offline by the Ride office as the website is not set up for team fundraising like this. For the sake of the cause, we hope each team member will raise even more than their minimum to do their part. The purpose of a team is to support each individual in doing more, not less, than they could do on their own. Donors can donate to your individual fundraising personal page, or to your team page.  All team funds, whether on an individual page or team page, will be pooled to go towards the entire team (Volunteer donations will count towards the team amount as well!).  Team Captains, please contact us at 651-571-2873 for additional instructions.  Return to top.

6. How do I find a team to join?
If you are participating alone but would like to join a team you can do so by contacting the Ride office.  Return to top.

7. How do I register my team?
If you haven't registered as a Rider or Volunteer yet, you may register online and select "Create a Team" or call 651-571-2873 to register by phone and indicate that you would like to start a team. Let us know your team name, and we’ll be happy to get you started.

If you've decided to form a team after you've already registered, contact the Ride office and let us know what team you’d like to create and we’ll take care of it for you.

Once the team name is registered, all registered team members can join the team by contacting us and let us know what team they’d like to join.  Team members who are not yet registered can select the “Join a Team” option when processing their registration on this website.  Return to top.

8. How do I add members to my team that are already registered?
Contact the Ride office and let us know what team members to add and we’ll take care of it for you.  Return to top.

9. Can a Volunteer join a team?
Yes. If you are registered as a Volunteer, you can join a team with your friends/family but you will also be  assigned to a Volunteer Team to fulfill a specific function on the event (e.g., Motorcycle Team, Pit Stop Team). You can still form a team for the purposes of fundraising and support with other Volunteers and Riders.   Return to top.

10. What is the incentive for being on a team?
On a team, you are surrounded by other people who are also on this great event. Many teams support each other by doing fundraising events, doing training rides together, having meetings to check in and see how all the members are doing, and much more.  Return to top.

11. Can one team member raise the money for all members?
Team members are allowed to pool their fundraising IF the team captain wants their team set up that way (keep reading...). An example of "pool your fundraising" is as follows:  Team Springsteen has 2 Adult Riders, 1 Minor Rider and 1 volunteer on their team.  As a team, their fundraising minimum they have to meet is $700, which is $350 (Rider #1) + $350 (Rider #2) + $0 (Minor Rider) + $0 (Volunteers are not required to raise funds)=$700.  Let's say Rider #1 on Team Johnson raises the entire $700 on his/her personal fundraising page, the entire team is able to Ride because the team, as a whole, met their fundraising minimum. This calculating is done offline by the Ride office as the website is not set up for team fundraising like this. If your team does NOT want to pool their funds, we do not have to calculate it that way. Contact us with questions. Return to top.

12. Can I host a team meeting for my team?
Yes!  Team meetings are a great way to share ideas, stay motivated and help each other with fundraising and training.  The more active the team, the more fun the experience will be.  Team meetings are also a great way to recruit new teammates!  Return to top.
