We know that not every rookie is a beginner
Many rookies are avid cyclists and/or experienced fundraisers and don’t need any coaching from us. No matter what your skill level, or fundraising experience, we have the extra support you will need to reach your goals. Rookies are very important to us. Around 35% of Bike MS cyclists are rookies every year and we expect over 600 rookies to join us this year. You are not alone.
Rookie Game & Bonus Bucks
The Rookie Game will enhance your first experience as a cyclist in the Bike MS: Tour to Tanglewood. Aside from being a great way to meet other people involved in this fabulous event, it’s easy, fun and gives you the opportunity to win prizes!
Stop by the Bike MS HQ table at any of the official pre-ride events and you can sign into the rookie binder. Rookies earn 25 Bonus Bucks for every event they attend. Rookies can earn bonus bucks for up to 10 events earning you $250 dollars that will be added to your fundraising total once you reach the $200 fundraising minimum.
The Rookie that checks in at the most pre-ride events will win a GRAND PRIZE (2011 Tour to Tanglewood Jersey, Bike MS Cycling Socks & Bike MS Waterbottle).
