Creating a team is easy! Gather ten or more people of any age and register to Ride. You can select different Routes or all the same Route. Your team can consist of anyone you enjoy spending time with; friends, family, people you work or volunteer with or those in your professional network. Register your team of ten people or more by the team deadline of May 8 and get your team name and logo printed on your Ride t-shirts!
