Ride for Life Chicago family
A Ride for Life Chicago team can consist of two or more participants and can be a combination of Cyclists, Virtual Riders and Crew. Anyone can join or start a team! Below are some frequently asked questions (and answers) about how teams work.

What are the advantages of being on a team?
Being a part of a team gives you access to training and fundraising support, keeping you strong, inspired, and creative during your training and fundraising journey in the months leading up to event weekend. For a first-time participant, a team is a great way to get involved with the Ride for Life Chicago community.

How do I join a team?

Join an existing team or create a new one when you register for Ride for Life Chicago!

Already registered, and feeling inspired to start a new team?  Contact event staff and we’ll help you set up your team and walk you through all the tools available to you as a Team Captain.

What is the fundraising requirement for team members?

Each Cyclist on a team is responsible for raising the required minimum of $1,200 by event weekend. While fundraising is optional for crew members, we are a fundraising event so we do ask crew to fundraise at least $500.

Can someone donate to a team?

Donations can be made to individual participants and teams. You can also split donations among team members or transferred from one participant to another.
