FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I have to be onsite to participate?
Indoor riders can participate at our RIDE HUB at the Golden Circle, at home, at the gym… wherever makes sense for you. Outdoor participants choose their own route and can visit 4 participating local locations for cool swag and treats.
Do we need to ride/run for 12 hours?
Last year’s challenge was to ride for 12 hours, which riders could complete solo or share among team members. We want to make the event more accessible this year, so we encourage individuals and teams to create their own goal. Your personal goal can be a grueling endurance challenge or a kind-to-the-body pledge to raise funds; it is up to you.
How do I fundraise?
Once you complete your registration, a personalized link will be provided to you to create a fundraising page. You will receive two emails to help you set up, customize and share your fundraising page. Hold tight, these emails aren’t instant.
Does each team member fundraise individually?

What is Strava?
