The Bike Shed Guelph

Join The Bike Shed Community Team Challenge!

When you register, you have the option of registering as an individual or starting or joining a team.

When you start or join a team, you will automatically be included in The Bike Shed Community Team Challenge.

 

What is the challenge?

The challenge is to be the team that makes the BIGGEST impact in our community by raising the most funds.

The winning team will win a team party hosted by The Bike Shed, Tour de Guelph’s official sponsor of The Community Team Challenge. And, of course, bragging rights as well as the right to feel a great sense of accomplishment in knowing that your team will make a difference in the lives of others within our community.

Anyone can start a team. Family teams, teams of friends, community groups, corporate teams – we welcome all types of groups to get involved. It’s good for you and good for our community!

If you are the one to start a team, as part of the registration process, a team online fundraising page will be created in addition to your personal page. You will be able to manage your team page as well as your personal page.

All those to join your team will get a personal page that is connected to your team. Your team page will then show all those who have joined your team plus how much they have each raised.

 

The Grand Team Challenge Prize

The Bike Shed wants you to ride your bike and feel like a kid again! At the team party, your team members can try out their smart bike trainers and experience the thrill of cycling gaming with Zwift or any other cycling app.  Up to eight people can ride at a time. The party may be scheduled for breakfast or lunch and will be catered.

PLUS, the winning team will also get a VIP seating area with reserved seating in the gymnasium where lunch is served after the ride.

 

More Team Challenge Perks!

For all Tour de Guelph registrants who are a part of a team and who have secured at least one donation, The Bike Shed will offer a 10% discount.

The Guelph General Hospital Team challenges you to try to take away their title of Top Fundraising Team in 2019!

We’re so impressed with the number of teams registered as part of this year’s Community Team Challenge, presented by The Bike Shed Guelph!

A new team that is really rock’n it this year is Team Junction. Initiated by the fine folks at Home Group Realty Inc, Brokerage and teamed up with their neighbors Granite Homes and Fixed Gear Brewing, with the goal to raise $5,000 for The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital and local Rotary projects.
 
So far, the team’s 20+ riders have raised almost $4,000! Incredible!
 
This year’s Home Group Realty Team has first-time Tour riders, families riding the Arboretum routes, and veteran riders competing in the 160K Century Ride!
 
Here’s a photo from their Spring Warm Up Fundraiser – the team participated in a grueling 1-hour Spin Class, generously donated by Goodlife Fitness Eramosa.
 
See the Home Group Realty Team on the road on June 23rd, and if you’re riding in the 25K or 75K routes, you’ll see them at the Moffat rest stop as well! Thanks Home Group Realty for being #FiercelyLocal and for supporting your community so fiercely!
