VIP Team

Want twice the fun? Share your VIP perks with your friends and family! Register as a VIP team and everyone on your team will receive a Ride for Heart cycling jersey or technical tee and be treated to valet bike parking, catered breakfast and lunch, and a parking pass. Plus, you’ll receive one-on-one fundraising support from our Heart & Stroke VIP coordinator, including best practices, fundraising tips and technical support.

What do you need to qualify? As a team, you’ll raise an average of $1,000 for every adult participant (that means your team of 4 will collectively raise $4,000 or more!). Not to worry, if your team does not reach the average fundraising per participant, those who do raise $1,000 individually can still enjoy the complete VIP experience!
