Team Sponsorship

As a Team Sponsor, your partnership may be utilized in the form of matching funds in our peer-to-peer format.

If a team fundraises at least $50,000 collectively, they may designate their dollars to a pre-approved designated fund. Please contact us for a full list of approved designations for 2021.

Once you select a team, your sponsorship will be utilized as incentive for our participants to elevate their cycling game, knowing that a lot of “rides” on their ability to meet their fundraising goals.
