Two Individual Ride Distance Competitions Plus a Personal Goal Challenge - Go Long in November for your chance to win prizes worth over £100

If you’re looking for something to keep you motivated during November then why not join us in this month’s inaugural Going The Distance Challenge?

The easier part: Simply log at least one individual ride over 25 miles long (40KM) to be entered into a random prize draw to win BikeRadar Challenge t-Shirts.

The harder part: The riders who log the 20% longest rides over 25 miles will also be entered into a second random prize draw to win £100 of e-Vouchers from Wiggle. The interesting aspect to this challenge is that you determine what the top 20% distance threshold will be! We will let you know on a weekly basis where the current mark is set. This could be REALLY hard or just relatively hard, depending on how far everyone rides. Good luck.

Example calculation: If the longest ride logged is 100 miles the top 20% distance threshold would be 80 miles.

Why Not Set yourself a personal individual ride distance target? Post it here, share with the group and report back when you’ve achieved your target to get well deserved plaudits from your fellow challengers!
