The Big Bike is ‘pedal powered’ and therefore requires at least 14 people to get the Big Bike rolling. Ideally, the bike should be full, so that’s 29 riders.
The ride itself typically takes 15-20 minutes. You should arrive 15-30 minutes before your scheduled ride time to hand in donations, have a team photo taken and enjoy the fun warm-up games. Some teams plan post-event activities—hopefully yours is one of them!
Have your friends, family or teammates get involved in your fundraising efforts, you’ll see that it doesn’t take a lot to make a difference. Fundraising amounts for your team can be between $1,500 to $5,000. A good team goal to set is between $3,000 and $4,000. If your team raises $5,000 or more, you will all receive a Big Bike Medal on event day!
Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death for Canadian men and women. As a matter of fact, every 7 minutes, someone in Canada dies from heart disease or stroke. Our team is riding the Heart&Stroke Big Bike to help change that.
All of the money raised through Big Bike helps support the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Donations are used to help fund critical research that’s preventing heart disease and stroke, saving lives and supporting survivors and their families.
