It’s April and Classics time, a whole month dominated by one day races including the legendary Paris Roubaix, Amstel Gold, La Fleche Wallone, and Liége-Bastogne-Liége. These races have two things in common; they’re incredibly tough and they’re extremely long. So with the days getting longer and the evenings getting lighter, it’s time to test members with the Velozone One Day Classic Distance Challenge – how far can you ride in one day?
This month, we’re challenging members to go long during April and achieve up to four individual ride distance targets – 25 miles, 50 miles, 75 miles & 100 miles. Each time you achieve a target your name will be entered into a random prize draw at the end of the month to win £100 e-vouchers from Wiggle, complementary Velozone premium training plans and new 2014 Velozone challenge t-shirts.
So if you achieve one target, your name will be entered once into the random prize draw. If you achieve all four targets, your chances of winning will increase fourfold as your name will be entered into the prize draw four times!
Plus each time you achieve a target you will be rewarded with one of these badges that will sit proudly on your profile page.
