Return to Earth 30 Day Challenge

The time is now. Are you ready to take on the 30-day Ride Challenge? This isn’t a juice cleanse. Nor is it some caveman devolution diet. This concept is simple; ride your bike - every day - for 30 days. Sounds easy, huh? For some, it might be. For others, it might force an upheaval of daily habits and routines. But if we focus, we can all conjure a little bit more time in the day to turn the cranks.

In partnership with Trailforks, Pinkbike Trek, Shimano and EVOC, Anthill Films are throwing down the gauntlet for the 30-day Ride Challenge. We know it will be hard work, so to give you an extra reason to get up 45 minutes earlier to ride, Trek and Shimano have teamed up to build the ultimate prize - the Return to Earth bike.

Yep, that’s a full custom Trek Slash with Shimano XTR. Enter the 30-day Ride Challenge and it can be yours, along with daily prizes from EVOC, Bontrager and Lazer.








How does it work?
From July 1st to July 31st record your rides on the Trailforks app. Record a ride every day for all 30 days to be entered to win the Trek Slash. If you don’t ride every day, no sweat, you’ll still be entered to win sick daily prizes on the days you do record a ride. Trailforks software will automatically generate your contest entry, and notify you with a badge; a 30-Day Challenge Badge, and 30 Daily Badges are up for grabs. Trailforks does the leg work and provides online leaderboards to see how you stack up, so you can focus on your rides. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

Contest Rules
• All recorded rides must include at least one trail as mapped on Trailforks to count for the contest.




How to Enter?
Sign into the Trailforks app and search for the 30 Day Ride Challenge in the "Badges & Contests" page. Or join the contest on the website here. Once you’ve joined the contest, your daily rides will be automatically accounted for in the Ride Challenge, so all you have to do is keep riding. You can record your rides using the Trailforks app or connect your Strava to Trailforks. Let us handle the rest.
Get out there and shred.

Sign up here.



What’s at Stake?
Grand prize: A 2019 Trek Slash with Shimano XTR drivetrain and brakes.

Daily prizes: Prize packs will consist of prizing from Pinkbike/Trailforks, Shimano, Trek, EVOC, and Anthill Films. Daily winners will receive a prize pack consisting of a custom Evoc Return to Earth Mission pack filled with: Lazer Impala MIPS helmet, Shimano Saint PD-M828 pedals, Bontrager Bat Cage water bottle holder made from reclaimed ocean plastics, Bontrager XR Elite Grips, Trailforks tee and socks, Return to Earth hat, tee and socks.

 A sanctioned trail every day? That's going to be a tough one for anyone not living at the trailhead. Nice idea guys!
  • + 26
 Yeah - my dreams of attempting this were quickly ended. Shame, and whilst I get why they did it they're denying a lot of people from participation...
  • + 17
 @slimboyjim: I guess its also promoting that you can add bridleways/sanctioned trails to trailforks!
  • + 23
 Need to spend the rest of June adding every local to TF and hit it hard in July.
  • + 6
 @bigbluebike: But not outside of the already designated 'MTB' areas. I just tried to add a local bridleway but wasn't able to as it's outside of their yellow boxes.
  • + 3
 The good news is I'll live just 100m from the start of a trail starting from 1st of july. The bad news is I won't have my MTB available until august and will have to use my gravel bike. Will somewhat limit the fun,
  • + 19
 @opignonlibre: Apparently gravel bikes are 90s mtb bike reimagined for people who weren't riding back then. Go ride on your gravel bike and remember the halcyon days of the 90s when everyone rode 1 bike for everything!
  • + 3
 this is a bit depressing.. i feel like a better idea would have been to require a ride for each day of the month, so you have to hit 30 rides total in a monthly period, so you can miss a day and hit 2 trails the next. At least then people who live far from trailheads can plan and then make the long trip and get more out of the free time they have in the week. Alas, this prize is out of my reach.
  • + 5
 Yea, it's not a 45-minute extra wake up for me, the nearest trail is over 2 hours away by train, and I don't think it's sanctioned by trailforks... The closest trailforks trailhead is like 3 hours away. Dang...
  • + 2
 @ShoodNoBetter: I agree. However the way we ride MTB has always evolved. I'm not sure I would want to ride some of the gnarly stuff I currently ride with a rigid MTB from the 90s.

I might just add a dropper on the gravel bike in the meantime to keep doing some stupid shit.

 I live next to trails, but I’d have to pretty much ditch work to make that happen. 48hr shifts don’t let me ride daily.

Too bad because that paint job on that Slash is sexy as all get out. So dope!

 My trail on my own land won't count either. Worth it.

 This, and being a dad squash my chances. But seeing my kids having fun riding bikes is all that matters Smile

 Sorry about the confusion! If it hasn't been clarified already, this is actually meant to read a legal trail currently logged on Trailforks. There's different verbiage for trails in N. America and it tends to get confusing as we speak more globally.

 @slimboyjim: Don't let your dreams be crushed! You can absolutely do this. I have faith. Pull up TF and see what trails are near you and ride those every day! Big Grin

 @Koin: Do you have any nearby trails uploaded to TF? You can always upload submit routes with your GPS head unit if they haven't already been done so. This gives you a month beforehand!

 @sarahlukas: Ha ha! I wish! Nearest trail is an hour drive away, as I live in the middle of a city. Factor in a family and work and every day becomes somewhat impossible...
I'll try and channel some of the enthusiasm though!

 Neat way to collect a whole lotta location tracking data on users this July...in time for Q4 shopping season. Seeing marketing from the mtb industry doesn't bother me but folks should be aware of what's going on. There are data metrics to hit for multiple reasons, one of which is monetization. Nothing wrong with that and I'm a business person too but, again, folks need to be aware. I'll surely try to ride every day in July, just like I do every month, but will keep location tracking turned off on all apps until I truly need it for a specific event.
  • + 4
 Agree with you on this. I think people are becoming more aware after the whole Facebook mess. I am doing it because it will be a fun challenge with friends but eyes are wide open to what Trailforks is doing. But props to Trailforks for providing a fun platform to do challenges like this.
  • + 3
 Absolutely i truly don't believe most people understand the underlying business model of social media and tracking apps.
  • + 27
 Except Trailforks doesn't make a profit, certainty none from Ridelog data. We use it as a resource to generate anonymized trail usage statistics for local trail associations. Valuable data for trail advocacy and planning. We also use ridelog data to determine the most popular rides, routes, suggest rides and our heatmap feature. We do not sell user ridelog data and even if we wanted to, it would be a tricky thing to do now with GDPR.
  • + 2
 @canadaka: do you provide that data to trail groups for free? Asking for a friend (curious if our local group uses this data)
  • + 12
 @dtimms: Yes, it's all public on the Trailforks website, example: www.trailforks.com/region/squamish/ridelogstats
There is some other tools we have that use the data that are only visible to trail association admins, like a heatmap of where people most often start rides, so they can plan where to put more trailhead/parking funding.
  • + 2
 @canadaka: thank you guys! Good to know
  • + 2
 @canadaka: Interesting. I'm surprised, genuinely, as it could be a source of valuable user and advertising data even at a macro level and could easily be monetized as a stand alone app.
  • + 1
 @canadaka: To be eligible for the contest, does the entire trail as shown on trailforks have to be ridden? Or could it be just a portion of it?

Edit: just found a response to my question in a lower thread. Thanks!
  • + 2
 @aarontherider: Trailforks trail matching is similar to Strava's segment matching. You do need to ride the entire trail, but we allow a 20% deviation or missed point. We also crop in the trails matched "segment" 20 meters from the start and end, for better timing results.
  • + 1
 @canadaka: I appreciate that you are transparent about what you do with the data you collect. But is it sufficiently representative? When I go to a new area to ride, I usually download routes to my watch from the manufacturer website and I use that for navigation together with the signs on the route itself. Others may use another platform (other watch brand or cellphone app), buy a paper map or just follow friends who know where they're going. So the number of people using Trailforks as an app are probably a small subset of all riders out there. Do you know how small that subset is and compensate for that? It probably differs by region too. Sounds like a real challenge! Either way, keep it up. It sounds like you're doing a great job!
  • + 1
 @canadaka: Thanks, I appreciate the information! Trailforks is probably the last app I worry about sharing that data with, but still, folks need to understand what it means to have location tracking on to decide if they want to give a 3rd party a permanent record of their movements.
  • + 1
 @vinay: We do, it does very from region and is continuing to grow. But we've compared our numbers with various economic impact studies with trail counter and survey data. It's often between 5-10% But more important is our percentages for things like demographic or when rides take place are pretty much right inline with the survey data percentages. So our numbers can be pretty reliably extrapolated. And some newer economic studies have done just this.
  • + 1
 @canadaka: Man either locals don't Strava or that is a serious amount of tourism generated by riding bikes in the woods. Cool stuff

 So, what is a "sanctioned trail" is it one that just been added to Trailforks no matter where it is, or is it one that's part of an official bike park/trail system, and thus has been verified by Trailforks?, I don't use the app so i don't know what their terminology means

Also, it says ...

"• All recorded rides must include at least one trail as listed on Trailforks to count for the contest."

.. isn't this just the same thing as the first point?, the trail has to be on Trailforks.
  • + 3
 I was confused by the two seperate conditions for rides also. But as for your first point, I believe it will be legal, sanctioned trails only - no unofficial lines. Those aren't published on ridelogs to protect them. I just tried adding a bridleway close to me but because it's not close to already recognised trails I wasn't able to.
  • + 5
 I also have no idea what it means. But maybe it's good if you live in a place where you can just ride your bike wherever you want and don't have to worry about these things. I at least wouldn't trade that for the chance to win a free bike.
  • + 0
 @cvoc: Me too - I have an amazing place to ride, its outside my door, but non of it is official, and its an hours drive to anything thats remotely "sanctioned".

Anyway, was just wondering what all their terminology meant, I have no intention of using any apps or entering, but it does kinda narrow down to those that can actually enter for the full 30 days of official riding ... maybe if one literally lives in Whistler, then boom .. !

Anyway, also, that paint job and look of that bike is awesome,.
  • + 1
 In my case I live in Madeira and ride lots of times the gamble line, this trail was part of the EWS and starred in Loic's Bruny movie, but even though is an unsanctioned trail wtf
  • + 2
 @demo7jumper: Thats a bummer for sure - so, is the trail on Trailfoks then? and if so does it have a status that states its "sanctioned? is that how people know a trail is official or not?


Also, while they are trying soo hard to be "understanding here", but this statement is a very detached ...

"For others, it might force an upheaval of daily habits and routines. But if we focus, we can all conjure a little bit more time in the day to turn the cranks."

.. just seems so detached from reality .. yeah, let me just lock the kids in a cupboard every evening while I ride, or maybe we can skip off work just like in the movies, easy !!

The more I see this comp the more pissed im getting and I hate irrational behaviour like this, I am down-voting myself just to make me feel better now .. !!! and maybe I should not come to this page anymore ....... then I wont be so gosh-darn tooting triggered!!!
  • + 2
 Ride logs on actual trails help trailforks produce heat maps and recommended trail directions. I also love browsing them for loop ideas. It makes sense Trailforks wants to promote that. Having to ride an actual trailforks trail might be a requirement their software is looking for to automatically make the magic of the contest happen.
  • + 1
 @demo7jumper: and somehow my small mischigan trail is on it. waddoyouknow?

 You just have to ride at least 1 trail as mapped on the public Trailforks map. To get a trail segment "match" you usually have to ride the entire trail as it's mapped.

 Sanctioned trails I think that puts most people out of the running. How do trails become sanctioned, around my way there are litterally hundreds of trails and hundreds of miles of riding, yet trail forks has hardly any noted. Shame as it would coincide with my goal of commuting off road every day.
  • + 2
 Can you not upload your rides/routes to Trailforks and get them on the map?
  • + 2
 "Sanctioned" isn't maybe the right word... Are those trails around you loaded into the Trailforks app? You can definitely record your rides and submit them to be included in the app if they aren't already.
  • + 1
 Looking at the content page (now published), it just says any trail on Trailforks, so there aren't any 'sanctioned' as in marked specifically for this contest, so get out and ride your rides and get them logged and see if you win.

 This is a great idea for a contest. Got offline and get out there.

 I did this few years back. Made it extra hard because it was winter and a full time job. Could ride from home and with lights. Still had to do silly things like take my bike on out of town work trips and ride at night in the middle of nowhere.

 I'll hopefully manage to ride every day a Trail... To win the Trek Slash would totally change my life, because I've ever ridden more "hard" stuff than my Scott Spark could manage. Indeed, it's nice to ride every day for a month, so you can shred with your friends and have a good time!
  • + 1
 Just a ride a day, doesn't matter how long? I noticed someone even uploaded an isolated local rockgarden, a few meters at most. Hit that once a day and be done with it. I'd feel guilty if I'd win it that bike! Don't worry, I won't. I don't use trailforks and just like many on here probably part of July I'll be away with gf and kids (and without bike). Do something like this in November or so so that people on both the northern as well as the southern hemisphere have equal opportunities to give it a shot.
  • + 1
 The rides needs to be a completed trail on Trailforks - so depending how long that trail records, that would then give the "completed trail."
  • + 1
 @sarahlukas: It says 52m on Trailforks. It is just a rockgarden descent built off the main route so that people don't have to ride it if they're just riding the regular loop. So it became a separe trail on Trailforks, apparently.

www.trailforks.com/trails/snake-bite-hill
  • + 1
 @vinay: From my understanding, that would count. We have segments like that where I live too...
  • + 2
 @crazyXCsquirrel: actually the Trailforks "badge system" only counts trails greater than 100 meters.
  • + 1
 @canadaka: Yeah, I was just kidding of course. No one rides just that rockgarden. You just get off the main loop, roll down there and then get back up and continue the loop.

I think the Trailforks app is really great but I've never used it. Just wondering, could I even upload rides if I don't have a fancy cellphone? I do have a Suunto Ambit 2 watch that records my rides, but to get it logged in Trailforks would that require me to export it from the Suunto software and then manually import it in Trailforks?
  • + 1
 @vinay: Yes, we don't currently have an automatic link with Suunto, not sure it's something they offer. You could go a round about way, and connect Suunto to Strava, then Strava to Trailforks, if you wanted to automate.

 I'm one of the lucky ones that has a trail in my back yard. However we often get heavy rains during july and to be good stewards of the trail, riding afterwards is not a good idea and sometimes it takes a few days to dry out. I'll also be on vacation for a week in july and pretty sure we don't have any trails at the local beach.

 Tough to enter, but sweet prize.
  • + 1
 Agreed. It makes sense that you have to use the app and the trails that are in it, etc. But it is very hard. I would have to spend hours a day and hundreds of dollars in gas for the month to get to sanctioned trails for a chance to win. And that assumes that any are actually open. We are a good month behind on opening trails because it simply has not stopped raining. Technically the closest sanctioned trail to me is always open unless there is trail maintenance. The worst thing for me is there are unsanctioned trails at the end of the block and I ride my bike to work so it seemed doable until I read the fine print.

 @vapidoscar: yeah but honestly- who cares about winning a sweet new bike when you already won the grand prize- you get to live in Cleveland Ohio every day. (I can make that joke because I’m from Cleveland, shout out Ray’s)

 @vapidoscar: This isn't for the faint of heart, which is why the prize is SICK. But, the daily prizes are perfect if you can't make it out for the big dawg.

 So I understand a lot people don’t have sanctioned trails on Trailforks, that sucks. I have a few, I think I can make it work.
Is it the most miles or if you ride everyday, you get thrown into a raffle?
  • + 1
 Ride everyday you get entered into the random draw at the end, Which shouldn't be a large pool of people. So I think the odds will be pretty good for a large prize like this, probably better than many of the past contests. For the daily prizes its also a random draw and your odds will be less.

 Is distance/ number of trails ridden going to matter? And what is the leaderboard for?
  • + 1
 It's doesn't matter for the contest prizes, but the leaderboard will be for fun. If multiple people have the same number of day badges, then will secondary rank on distance.
  • + 2
 @canadaka: I thought getting 30 was an enter to win, so it was a lottery/raffle/draw thing... It's based on distance? Just trying to be clear... your first and second sentences seem slightly contradicting.
  • + 1
 @mtbikeaddict: There is daily prizes, you need to join the contest AND log a ride to be counted in a daily random prize draw.

For the overall contest win, you need to join the contest AND ride everyday for 30 days, earning a badge each day. Then it's also a random draw among all the people who complete that challenge. Of course not everyone who completes the challenge can win the contest, that could be a lot of bikes! But your ods in the random draw are probably pretty good if you get all 30 days.
  • + 1
 @canadaka: Is the day for a badge determined by the time of ending the activity / your servers receiving the activity?

How does the system define a day: Is it 00:00 to 23:59 Pacific Time (UTC−07:00) - except for 1st July which doesn't start until 01:00? Or a different zone - perhaps local time of the recording device?

So to get a badge, the ride needs to be marked Public? Can it be marked Hide Map?
  • + 1
 @RichJS: So this is a bit tricky since it's world-wide. Most the time badges are regional and when creating the badge a timezone is specified. For this global contest a timezone is still specified but its the same one for the whole world, in this case PST. Which is our local timezone and where the largest MTB audience is.

The start time of the ride is what's used.

Normally to meet a badges date criteria the date-time of when the ride took places is used, not the upload time. This is like you say 0:00 to 23:59 Pacific Time. I realise this is not ideal for people on the other side of the world, something we could maybe look to improve next time, or maybe something I can get sorted before July 1.

A ridelog must be public but it can have "hide map" selected.
  • + 1
 @RichJS: I made some code changes, so that global badges should work better internationally. As long as the ridelog is from the day in YOUR OWN TIMEZONE, it will be counted.

 @canadaka: oh, Ive never use trailforks due to this, thanks alot!!!
  • + 2
 How I can filter trails to find the sanctioned out? Do I have to open every trail to check it out?
  • + 1
 You just need to ride any trail that is on the public Trailforks map. The wording of that was a bit confusing. Trailforks has lots of "hidden" trails mapped not visible to the public, just to local trail association admins.
  • + 1
 @canadaka: if a ridelog includes both sanctioned and hidden trails, does it count? And does it count if a ridelog is made private?
  • + 1
 @DMal: Yes a ridelog can include hidden trails in it, so it might be marked "sensitive". As long as it also includes a match on a public trail, it will be counted.
Private ridelogs don't count towards badges and therefore this contest. We need to be able to do some verifying of the rides for those that complete the 30 days.

 you can add them yourself, Trailforks works as a "trail wikipedia" everyone can add trails, access roads, etc. Just follow the help pages and trailfork forum to be sure you are doing it right.

 @canadaka: Does that mean 23 days before it starts, and it still runs July as announced, or is it actually just the rest of June?
  • + 2
 @mtbikeaddict: The contest itself is July 1 to July 30, where you need to track a ride each of those days that includes 1 trail. But like all our contests, you need to also "opt-in" by clicking JOIN on the contest page.

 Can you log road rides?
  • + 1
 As long as the route is on Trailforks then it will count. So if the ride has road sections in them, then it should. If you can manage a ride with just the road sections then it should be fine (I've no official part in this content, just a hopeful participant that has been reading all the comments and responses from the Mods, and come up with that understanding).

 No fucking way am I showing trailforks 30 of my favourite trails! Nice try though.

 If they aren't already publicly mapped on Trailforks, it wouldn't count towards the contest anyway Razz
