WAYS TO JOIN THE MACA CANCER 200 RIDE
Most people experience the Ride as part of a Corporate or Community team. It often makes it easier to train and fundraise as a group. Rally your colleagues or put the word out to your mates and over two days ride 200km to beat cancer together.
If you prefer to ride solo, that’s great too! You’ll still be a part of a supportive community riding with one purpose.
There’s an option to suit everyone.
The community teams are a strong, loyal group – many teams have been with the Ride since it began. Usually made up of family and friends, community teams come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life.
You might form a team that includes local sports club mates, cycle club enthusiasts, extended families, or your nearest and dearest – the options are endless.
Forming a community team starts with asking someone to join you. Remember, asking someone to ride with you will be more powerful if you have already signed up.
The community teams are a friendly lot. They’re always happy to chat about how to get started on your Ride journey and can provide great tips and hints to help you along the way.
The MACA Cancer 200 is fortunate to have long-standing teams from many of Australia’s leading companies. They believe in giving back to the community in which they live and work. When a corporate team comes together to fight cancer, it’s extremely powerful. Many of corporate teams are open and invite their family and friends to join them on their fundraising and cycling journey.
The benefits for your workplace and employees by joining the MACA Cancer 200 are profound. Many of our returning corporate teams note higher levels of workplace happiness, productivity and morale as a result of being a part of the Ride.
Forming a corporate team starts with asking someone at work to join you. And your ask will be much more powerful if you have already signed up yourself and self-donated.
We understand that group riding isn’t for everyone, so you have the option of registering as a solo rider in the MACA Cancer 200.
But don’t worry – you’ll never be alone! Our solo riders receive all the same ongoing training and fundraising event support as team riders, and the Ride team at the Perkins will be alongside you every step of the way.
There are many opportunities to meet fellow riders in the lead up to the event, and on the event weekend itself you’ll meet hundreds of like-minded riders.
There are also many teams who love to welcome in solo riders.
So, if you would like to join a team, let us know at email@example.com and we’ll find you a good fit.
