The Santos Great Bike Ride for Homeless Youth is an ideal event for companies, social clubs and families to participate by registering as a team, volunteering, fundraising or taking advantage of the corporate hospitality.
No matter what type of bike you ride, or how little riding you have done, we invite you to join as a corporate or social team and enjoy the benefits.
People who enter as teams are usually corporate groups, training groups, or families who are entering into the 98km Ultimate Ride or 52km Challenge Ride. Entering as a team allows the Team Captain to easily manage the team, tracking who has entered and, if they wish, managing the team payment through one easy transaction for all members.
A team is considered a group of two or more people that rides in the event. Not all team members have to participate in the same distance. Each team member can choose which distance they want to enter and can manage their entry individually to the rest of the team.
If you enter as a team you also go into the running for some fantastic awards and prizes.
There is no limit to the amount of members per corporate or social team but a minimum of five is encouraged. When registering a team you will need to choose an average speed or the slowest speed for your team. This will help alleviate congestion along the course and ensure your team stays together.
All registrations are completed online, making it easy for you to enter the event and providing the option of paying for your team as one or for team members to pay individually. Download how to register a team and enter into a team form for instructions.
Please note: online payment only accepts VISA or MASTERCARD; if you do not have either forms of payment, please contact us to make alternate payment arrangements. Please note that all team payments must be made by close of business Friday 13 November and therefore if you have minimum processing times, you must contact us with your requirements prior to this date.
You can also join with friends, workmates or family to form your own fundraising team and raise funds for our charity, St John of God Horizon House. To maximise the success of this event you can become a Santos Great Bike Ride Hero by making a difference to young people in need.
On completing the ride, there is nothing better than the opportunity to relax, unwind and share stories with your team members, fellow riders, family and friends. Corporate teams can book hospitality packages of various levels; for more information please visit our Corporate Hospitality page.
Have you thought of encouraging your staff to volunteer and play a key role in the Santos Great Bike Ride for Homeless Youth? We are seeking more than 300 volunteers to act as marshals along the route and fulfil various other roles on the day and leading up to the event. Volunteers receive an official t-shirt and refreshments on the day, and the chance to support their colleagues involved in the ride! Please click here to find out more about volunteering.
