From June 20 to 22, teams of up to 29 riders (and a driver provide by the HSF) will cruise around in the flashy red bike to help raise funds and awareness for heart disease and stroke research. The rides last for roughly 20 minutes to complete a 2km to 4km drive. The best part about Big Bike is that it's free to participate, with no registration fees. The minimum requirement from each individual rider is to raise $50 worth of pledges, and aside from doing a good deed, there's opportunities to win tons of prizes too!
