Strava Club & Challenges

G’day,

Since March and the start of our event hibernation we have received a lot of messages and ourselves experienced the comfort to know that fellow mountain bikers from our Rocky Trail Community are thinking of each other when they go out riding. Let’s stay connected in spirit and we are working hard to put things into place that we’ll be up and running events very quickly, once we are allowed to do so again. Why not motivate your families, friends and that mate that just bought a bike these last few weeks?!?

Join us in the brand-new Rocky Trail Racing STRAVA CLUB!
Let’s log kilometers, vertical meters and smiles to send positive energy and good thoughts out to each other!! We are also launching some specific challenges together with Double Strength, which was developed by one of our Rocky Trail racers, Luke Beuchat!

1. Strava Club
2. Special Challenges

Join the Rocky Trail Racing Strava Club and get highlights of what, where, how far and long fellow #rockytrailracers are riding.

Sign up for special Riding Challenges – Members of the Rocky Trail Strava Club can additionally sign up for special challenges we put out. With thanks to Luke from Double Strength we will be running a number of challenges over the next few weeks to keep us all connected and active and RIDING until we can race again.

Basically you

  • (1) have to have a Strava account and follow/be a member of our Rocky Trail Strava Club “Rocky Trail Racing” and then
  • (2) sign up to the Double Strength platform to be ranked on the leaderboards with your Rocky Trail mates. This was developed by Luke Beuchat, one of your fellow #rockytrailracers – it will grab all your activities in the timeframe we set from Strava and create leaderboards for the challenges!

Get started – scroll down to get instructions how to get connected!

# 1 Distance: The Bruce Willis ‘Ride’ Harder Memorial

The first one is a distance challenge. This is for the so-called hard men and women out there:

How long can you keep the pedals turning over in a single hit out? This Challenge looks for your longest single ride or virtual ride by KMs travelled over the challenge period.

For those who have too much time on their hands during Lock-Down!

This is aimed at those who just love riding their bike for a really long time! This Challenge looks for your longest single ride by moving time spend for the challenge period eg. do an Everest attempt or 24-hr Solo and you win!

#3 Pain: The Ramp Test

This is 60 seconds of pure, undulated pain.

Well maybe it’s more like 15 mins of physical and mental anguish. This challenge is designed to test pure fitness ie it is effectively and FTP Test. It is best done on an indoor trainer using Zwift but this is not mandatory.

IMPORTANT:

Please include the following in your ride name: #ramptest
