Gather friends, family and colleagues and inspire them to raise funds to ride the one and only Heart and Stroke Big Bike!  Riders on a team solicit pledges and gear up for a great spectacle. This wacky, fun event is a great way to build team spirit and profile in your community. A Big Bike Team Captain rallies and recruits a team of up to 29 participants who ride on a 30-seat bike and raise money in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
