A Padres Pedal the Cause team is a great way for friends, family members, and colleagues to ride, spin, and fundraise to share their experience. In addition to individual rider profile pages, teams automatically get a page as well that lists all team members and displays cumulative raise. Team members can share donations made to their team as a whole. Funds may only be shared with fellow team members.

You can select to join a team during the registration process. If you have already registered, log into your profile and click the "Join a Team" link in the left submenu, then select the team you wish to join from the list. The team captain will receive a notification email when you join the team.

You can create a team during the registration process. If you have already registered, log into your profile and click the "Create a Team" link in the left submenu.

If you are creating a team for your company, for example, create a Corporate Challenge team; if you are creating a team for friends and family, create a Friends and Family team.

The team's general funds may be shared among individual members who still require funds to reach their minimum fundraising commitment. This is done at the discretion of the team captain in November/ December, just prior to the close of fundraising.
