1. Join this race for FREE by clicking the “join” link above (you’ll need to be a registered member – click here to sign up if you’re not already a member)
2. Go for a ride, covering the specified race distance - 25 miles. You can ride any route at any time you like.
If you complete a longer distance than the specified race distance our computer system will calculate what your race distance time would have been. So, for example, if you log a 50 miles completed in 120 mins, your 25 mile time will be calculated as 60 mins. This is the time that will be displayed in the race leaderboard.
3. Login to BikeRadar Active and Log your rides by midnight GMT 31st December 2013
There are a number of ways you can log runs. Download the BikeRadar Active mobile training app for iPhone and sync your run directly to your BikeRadar Active training diary; Sync your BikeRadar Active training diary with Nike+; Upload an activity directly from a Garmin device or upload a GPX, TCX, .FIT or Polar .HRM file. Manually log an activity - You will need to specify the distance you completed and your time. If you have mapped the route you rode, you can also add this to your logged activity.
We’re aware that it’s possible to cheat if activities are logged manually but there's not much point in cheating - you’re only cheating yourself by putting down a faster time than you actually completed. Plus, where prizes are available, all applicable winners will need to be able to verify their time to qualify for a prize (the easiest way to do this is to use one of the other logging methods described above that involve uploading a GPS verified activity).
4. Share all your progress and updates from the race series on BikeRadar, Facebook and Twitter using the #bikeradarvirtualrace hashtag.
