Sprocket Fuel Mountain Bike Challenge

Wed July 15 - Sat August 15
Ditch the Pavement, Upgrade to Trails
Description

Calling all Mountain Bikers -

Get pumped for a summertime mountain bike event that will test your endurance and motivate you to ride more - the Sprocket Fuel Mountain Bike Challenge.

Ride any open trail, at any time between July 15th and August 15th, with the goal of accumulating a TOTAL of 100 or 200 miles over the monthlong period.  For each ride, track your distance on your GPS device and upload to our online platform.  In addition to distance, our super cool data platform will allow you to upload elapsed time and elevation gain, but both of those data points are optional.  Each ride's progress is added to the totals of all earlier rides to make up your one month total.  Compare your miles completed with others on the leaderboard and at the end of the event, download your digital finisher certificate with your stats.  You can also create a team and invite your friends to ride along with you, virtually or in person.  

In addition to the personal challenge and digital tracking of this event, your registration fee includes a comfy t-shirt, a colorful head wrap, and a beautiful 5" magnet to remember your accomplishment - all shipped directly to you.  All participants are eligible to win prizes and random giveaways distributed at the virtual awards ceremony.  

If you're looking for a fun MTB challenge this summer.  Here you go.  Let’s do this!

You have questions, we have answers

Email your questions to info@roadlessraces.com and we will get back to you with answers.  Below are answers to some common questions we think you might have.  We will expand this section as we get more questions that might be helpful to all riders.  

This is a challenge, not a race - so why am I able to input distance, time, and elevation?  While distance is the main goal with this challenge, this is your personal challenge and we want to give you the ability to track as much data as you would like.  Feel free to forgo inputting time and elevation if you do not care about those details.  'Results' will be sorted by distance only.

Do I have to complete all 100 or 200 miles on one ride?  No, no, no - ACCUMULATE those miles over the monthlong period from July 15th-Aug 15th.  Of course, if you want to crank out those miles all in one go, have at it!

Do I have to ride on trails only?  We think trails are the bee's knees, but this is your challenge.  So, if you want to ride on roads, green ways, gravel, or on a trainer in your garage - go for it.  Have fun, challenge yourself, and ride more, that's what this is all about! 

What happens if I do not complete my miles?  Nothing.  This is your personal challenge.  Do your best to complete your mileage and if you don't succeed, hey, you gave it your best shot and that's an accomplishment in itself.    

I didn't learn about this challenge until after it started on July 15th, can I still participate?  For sure, you have until July 29th to sign up.  But remember, the more days you have to ride, the easier it will be to accomplish your goal.

Create a team and have fun with friends

Adventures are more fun with friends so create a team and invite your friends to join you in this challenge. Track the progress of your teammates and cheer them on!  Creating or joining a team is simple during or after registration.  NOTE:  This is not a relay so all team members will still be shooting for their individual goal of 100 or 200 miles.
