What makes a team, you ask?
Any group of 8 or more riders qualifies as a team. Friends, family, bike clubs, race clubs! Whatever! In addition, individual team riders can choose any route to ride – regardless of what the rest of the team is riding. Team Registration is available online only. Youth discount registration does not apply. Follow these steps to register as a team for the MIBR:
- Select a Team Name and a Captain. Team captain must e-mail us to receive a Team Password. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Team Captain must be FIRST to register online; He/she enters the Team Name and the password.
- Team Captain shares password and official team name with each team member.
- Now each team member can register on his/her own. It’s that simple!
Mail In Your Registration (2015 form available)
We do not offer refunds on registration. You may however transfer your registration to another rider. Sign your registration papers (from the Confirmation Newsletter) over to the other rider. Inform the new rider to check in on the morning of the ride with your Rider Number.
