Our Event

Our Event

A Bike for Tykes day brings together teams to participate in four exhilarating hours of spin relay on stationary bikes in the Toronto financial district. Over 200 teams and over 1,400 participants take part, while our child ambassadors cheer you on!

Our 2017 Cause: Coast To Coast Against Cancer Foundation Translational Clinical Cancer Research Initiative at SickKids

Our 2017 Fundraising Goal: $350,000

Every dollar you raise in support of Bike for Tykes, goes directly to the cause we support. Grab a group of friends or colleagues and join the fun!

Event Date: Thursday June 15, 2017

Event Time: 10:00am-2:00pm

Event Location: TD Courtyard, TD Centre (Southwest corner of King Street and Bay Street)

Who can participate: Sign up a team of up to 4, 6 or 8 spinners, or as a solo cyclist and cycle the whole 4 hours. No prior spinning or training required. First-class spin instructors will lead you from the centre stage while music, refreshments, prizes, technical t-shirts, and more await you!

Registration Fees: Thanks to our generous sponsors, there is no registration fee to participate. However, Bike for Tykes asks each team to meet a minimum fundraising requirement of $1000. On average our teams raise $2000. Every dollar raised by our participants goes to support the Coast To Coast Against Cancer Foundation Translational Clinical Cancer Research Initiative at SickKids.

Team Size: Teams range from 1 to a maximum of 8 team members.
Team members spin as a relay so if your team consists of:

Our Event

  1. one participant, the solo spinner spins all 4 hours continuously
  2. two participants, each spinner spins 2 hours each, either one after the other or alternating over the 4 hour period
  3. four participants, each spinner spins one hour, one after the other
  4. six participants, two spinners spins for one hour and 4 spinners ride 30 mins each, in any order you want one after the other; and
  5. eight participants, each spinner spins for 30 mins, one after the other.

Event Day Action: On event day teams will convene in the TD Courtyard and be assigned to a team bike. Spinners will have divided the 4 hours of spinning time between their members and arranged for pass off of the relay at the time mark accordingly. The first spinner will jump on the team's bike at 10:00am and the last spinner will dismount the team's bike at 2:00pm. For the time in between, top notch spin instructors will lead the spinning fun from the stage, rotating on the hour. Our child ambassadors are also there, at the centre of the corral, energetic and eager to cheer spinners on while distributing fresh towels, water, bananas, and prizing to participants.

Best Team Costume: Take home this amazing trophy and our fabulous prize simply by getting your team to be creative and come dressed in your best costumes. Great for team bonding!!
