Virtual Rider

What is a Virtual Rider?

If you are not able to ride but you want to join VeloSano by fundraising for the cause, register as a Virtual Rider. It’s a great way to be involved and do your part to help raise dollars for cancer research.

Becoming a Virtual Rider is also the perfect solution for people who reside in remote offices who can’t ride but want to fundraise for a team. If you are VeloSano Volunteer, we encourage you to also register as a Virtual Rider and fundraise for cancer research.

What’s involved with being a Virtual Rider?

Register as a Virtual Rider, donate $25 to yourself at time of registration, personalize your fundraising page, and then ask every friend, family member and co-worker possible to donate to you in support of cancer research at Cleveland Clinic.

How do I register to become a Virtual Rider?

Visit velosano.org, click the “Register” link and select the Virtual Rider participation type during registration.

Can a Virtual Rider create a team?

Yes, while we encourage you to join a team of Riders if your family, friends and colleagues are starting a team, you can create a team. Simply gather co-workers, friends and family who will fundraise, create a team name, then register by selecting “Start a Team” and fill out the appropriate information. By starting a team, you become the Team Captain. Teams can be comprised of Virtual Riders and/or Riders.

Is there a registration fee to be a Virtual Rider?

No, there is no registration fee to participate as a Virtual Rider, but there is a Required Self-Donation of $25 at the time of registration to help kick-off your fundraising. This donation is tax-deductible.

Do I need a credit card to participate?

Yes, but only for your Required Self-Donation of $25.

What is the fundraising commitment to be a Virtual Rider?

There is no fundraising commitment for Virtual Riders; just the Required Self-Donation of $25. However, VeloSano is focused on raising as much money as possible for cancer research at Cleveland Clinic.

We encourage you to go all-out, maximize your fundraising potential and become a Big Wheeler by raising $1,000 or more!
