Ride Individually or On a Team:

You will be riding with the best instructors from across Houston!  A different spin instructor will be leading each hour.  When registering you can sign up as an individual or join a team.  Individual riders are on the bikes for the entire 6 hours of the event.  Most riders choose to ride on a team.

Select a team captain from among your friends!  Have them use the “Create a Team” link on the registration page to create a team and register.  Once a team is created, other team members can use the “Join the Team” link on the registration page to register and join the team.    Team captains will coordinate with their team members to determine how many hours each team member would like to ride and what time option is best for them.  Teams can be any size as long as there are 2 or more members.  Our Wheel to Survive Director will coordinate with each team captain to determine how many bikes each team will need.  Team bikes will be positioned close to one another at the event.

We encourage teams to be spirited!  Dress up, decorate the bikes assigned to your team and work together to fundraise!  Take team photos and most of all have fun!

Contact Jon Mize (jmize@bethedifferencefoundation.org) if you have any questions or would like to be placed on a team.

Why You Should Ride:wheel_warriors_in_action_for_corp_challenge

Women with ovarian cancer need your help. Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynecological cancer affecting 1 in 70 women. Today more than 70% of ovarian cancer patients will die of their disease, compared to less than 20% of breast cancer patients. When ovarian cancer is detected and treated early, the five year survival rate is greater than 92%. Sadly, symptoms are vague and subtle, so most patients are diagnosed at later stages. Less than 50% will survive more than 5 years after their diagnosis. It is time to change these statistics for our Mothers, Daughters, Sisters and Girlfriends! 

100% of Funds Raised By Riders Supports Programs To Help Women Battling Ovarian Cancer & Research for a Cure

Funds raised at Wheel to Survive support the following organizations and programs:
