Form or join a Bike MS team and get ready for the ride of a lifetime—together. From the moment you register, you'll feel a spirit of camaraderie and support like you've never experienced before. With every team training ride and every dollar raised toward your fundraising goal, you'll form a bond with your teammates that will last long after you cross the finish line.
Teams participate with us in one of three ways: National Teams, Corporate Teams or Friends and Family Teams.
Corporate Teams: Corporate teams have a corporate affiliation and are traditionally made up of employees of the company and friends and family members of employees.
Friends and Family Teams: Friends and Family teams are just like they sound - a group of people participating together to create a world free of MS! Sometimes these teams are walking in support of a loved one living with MS or coming together to simply support a great cause.
National Teams: National Teams are teams that participate in four or more markets OR have a team in more than one market and raise over $50,000. We currently have over 100 National Teams and they are making a powerful difference for people living with MS. Click here to learn how to become a National Team.

Riding as a team is an experience like no other, and here is what it is all about:
Bike MS is a great opportunity to bring employees, families, friends, customers and suppliers together to raise money and awareness for the National MS Society. The Bike MS event is also an opportunity to encourage health and wellness activities throughout the company not only during the ride, but also the physical training activities leading up to the ride. Our employees feel an overwhelming sense of pride when the event begins and they are surrounded by more than 100 JM Team members."–Mary Rhinehart

Recruit. The more the merrier. Team members can be anyone: friends, family, coworkers, neighbors... pretty much anyone you can think of. And here's the thing: They don't even have to be cyclists. Teams can always use additional support along the way. There's no limit how big a team can be, so get out there and start asking. Our online tools, like our mobile apps (Fundraise with Facebook / Apple App Store / Google Play) and Participant Center, help make this easier than ever.
Fundraise. This is the big one. It's also why the first one is so important. The bigger your team is the more you're able to collectively raise; and the more you raise, the more your team is doing to impact MS. Fundraising parties are always a great idea and even more successful (and fun) when each member of the team contributes their talents and resources to help make it happen. Get more ideas on fundraising from experienced Bike MS fundraisers.
Celebration. You won't believe how many reasons you and your teammates will have to celebrate together: Enjoying a few pints at the end of a long training ride; hitting a fundraising milestone; meeting team goals; and, of course, every mile ridden to create a world free of MS.
Support. Bike MS Teams receive a tremendous amount of support. We provide many resources to ensure your whole team has an extraordinary experience. Take a look at the Team Resources tab to learn more.
If we are going to end MS, we can't do it alone. We need collaboration. We need connections. We need each other. We need teams. Let's ride!

Our team of was formed because I was diagnosed with MS in March 2012. Since then, our team has grown to over 100 participants and over 27 living with MS. It's not about the distance, it's about the fundraising, and the ride is a celebration of your fundraising success."–Chris Potter
