Cycling is all about fun, exercise and enjoying the outdoors – but it’s also about camaraderie, and riding the Bobbo is a wonderful opportunity to team-up with a group of friends, colleagues or family and have fun together.
It’s also a lot easier to fundraise with encouragement and inspiration from your team-mates. This team-synergy has been responsible for generating well over half the funds raised from riders in previous years for our charity partner Lifeline and the other charities we support.
Any team which has 10 or more riders, or any team with at least 5 riders which has raised at least $1,500 will be given free entry to the Corporate Marquee at the start/finish area where you can enjoy a BBQ, cold beer, coffee and tea, cakes, juices, fruit salads and a physiotherapy service while your team winds down and shares experiences after the event.
A few points worth noting if you’re about to set-up a team or join a team:
Method 1 - you are the team captain – not yet registered to ride
If you want riders to enter a password to join the team, tick the checkbox below Team Goal
If the box is not ticked, any rider in the event can join your team!
Let your team-mates know the team name and password!
Method 2 - your team has 10 or more riders - we do it for you!
Email us your team name, team captain contact details and expected rider numbers. firstname.lastname@example.org
We will send you a form to enter registration details for each rider, and a copy of the event Terms and Conditions (T&C)
Please forward the form and T&C, and team name and password to each rider.
The team leader or company pays by direct deposit when all riders have registered.
Please email our registration coordinator here: email@example.com
Once your team captain has set-up your team. riders in the team can register themselves:
If you didn’t select a team when your registered, Please advise our registrations manager and we will join you to the team.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and last name, email and mobile and the name of the team you wish to join
Each team has its own page which shows who is in the team, their fundraising targets and who has donated. This can be accessed from the Fundraise tab at the top of this page. There is a standard introduction on the page which explains why you’re raising funds for the Bobbo. It’s a good idea to amend the text to make it personal.
Your team page has a dedicated link which you can copy and paste into an email to send to potential sponsors. To make a donation all they need to do is follow the link and enter their payment details.

If you’re trying to get a team together at work it helps to advertise the event on a communal notice board or by email, so we’ve produced some useful posters and sample text which you can use for emails. You can download these below:
