Virtual "Beat the Heat" Challenge

We will be introducing our new "Beat the Heat" challenge virtually and will be awarding one person who "beats the heat" with a prize pack containing members of our bike unit's favorite cycling gear. To beat the heat you must outperform one of our officers in one of two ways during the virtual event. The first is to be higher in accumulated weekly mileage on the Strava leaderboard than one of our officers (who we will select and announce the name of by November 8th). The second way in which you can qualify for the Beat the Heat award is to participate in the RGT Cycling virtual race on November 14th and place higher than the same officer, who should be pretty tired and slow by Saturday after trying to jack mileage up over the preceding week.

Anyone who has more mileage or outperforms than our officer in the virtual race will be entered into the prize drawings for the virtual event and the Beat the Heat Challenge prize pack.

Prizes

Anyone who completes at least one ride, which will be confirmed via our Strava Club page, will be entered into drawings for raffle prizes which will be shipped to the winners along with their rider packets if they are unable to pick them up from the Laurens Police Department.

Virtual Beat the Heat Challenge

To add a competitive element to the world of virtual rides, we are having a Beat the Heat challenge in which all riders who outperform our officer the week of the event will receive a special item as well as be entered into a special drawing for a package comprised of gear from our unit sponsors as well as other odds and ends we just think are pretty cool both relevant to cycling and from local businesses.

The details of the challenge will be emailed to all registered participants the week prior to the event.
