Are You Up For The Challenge?

Just like that, we've completed week one of the Trailforks Winter Challenge. In this first week, 1,241 participants rode 35,085 miles over 2,209 rides. Now that's some impressive stats for November! See below for who won this week's prize and don't forget to record your rides with Trailforks for the next seven weeks for a chance to WIN awesome weekly prizes courtesy of SRAM and RockShox.

How much riding can you do in 8 weeks?





WINTER TRAIL CHALLENGE:

From now until Tuesday Jan 12th 2021, challenge yourself, challenge friends and get out and ride your bike!

Prizes:

Weekly prize packs (8 total) featuring RockShox Reverb AXS Seatpost and SRAM GX Eagle Boxset.


WEEK ONE PRIZE WINNER: @mappermook



Weekly Prize draws will be held every Tuesday from now to Jan 12th 2021


How it Works:

Each week, for every mile you ride you will earn an entry point. It’s open to anyone recording a ride, so MTB, Road Bike, Gravel Bike etc. So your commute to work can count!

But, by riding trails you double your chances. If you ride trails on your ride you get a 2 x Entry points for every mile ridden. And if you use the Trailforks App to record your rides you also earn 2x Entry points per mile ridden.




Every week, all entry points are put in to a random prize draw with winners drawn and announced on Trailforks.

Note: Points earned per week count for each weekly prize drawer. Points do not roll over.

Given it is often wet during the winter months in the northern hemisphere, please make smart ride decisions! Choose trails that can handle wet weather riding if it is wet, or choose a road ride instead.
Also adhere to your local COVID restrictions and best practice.

 Why are we measuring in miles and not kilometres? PB is based in Squamish ffs. The mathematics involved for our southern neighbours would have them feeling they are getting bonus points.

 devastating, I was pretty sure I would win. Not statically, or for any real reason, but I was feeling good about it this morning. oh well, back to the drawing board. Those drivetrains are going to be worth their weight in gold pretty soon if Covid keeps up.

 @sarahmoore: I have trail forks synced with strava, if I use the strava app will the rides be counted for the purpose of this contest, or do I need to record exclusively on the trailforks app?..

 @slickwilly1: You can sync your rides to Trailforks from Strava.

 I don't understand at all what you're complaining about. I am from the Czech Republic, more precisly from Prague where I have a very limited number of official trails and I ride almost every day in 0 degrees Celsius on a 10 year old freeride/enduro bike (Specialized BigHit 3 180mm coil travel) And guess what, I'm winning this week and I'm not complaining about anything. Stop crying, get dressed and go enjoy the ride on your bikes!

 Well done winner! Riding in Nelson, it would be great if the contest counted elevation gain, rather than mileage. The trail count doesn’t seem to work as expected, the TF App counts the individual trails, but the contest just says ‘1’ trail, even though the App suggests several.

 Thank you very much. I'm shocked (no pun intended) and overjoyed that I won.

 @mappermook: Congrats man, winning stuff for riding you bike! Does it get any better??

 I would say that’s on purpose that the trail count is once. Doing a single trail, which is 15miles long would give 30 points but 5 trails over 5 miles should give you 50 points? And you can’t use the trail length, because that would give you uneven points.

 @mitochris: It seemed to count more than one trail for some riders/rides though, particularly those at the top of the leader board. Looking at it again this morning I see one rider got 4x trails, but if you take a look at the ride-log there were 26 trails on the 40km ride, so I guess there’s a minimum distance per trail before it’s counted by the contest. Makes sense. Smile

 @Danksi: Agree. I did a detour this morning to try to include a tiny trail (not really a trail, don't know who put that in) but it didn't count it for the competition but indicates I rode one trail on TF. So yeah, a certain distance might be needed. But still, would a 13km trail give more multiplications in comparison to 2x 1km?

 @Danksi: You only get the trail 2X bonus once per ride. The people with higher trail count numbers on the leaderboard did multiple rides during the week each including trails on those rides.

 I did not really understand one thing... If weekly prize winner is chosen randomly in a random prize draw, what is the point of collecting points and leaderboard..if the weekly leader with most points will not win? Please somebody explain me how it works cuz the biking this week cost me lots of time and energy (because i wanted to win obviously) and all for nothing ?

 Kinda cool to see a dedicated Trailforks user pick up the first win. Congrats.

 Thank you so much. My mapping addiction and oath to ride every day that the weather allows finally paid off. LOL!

 Too bad my phone’s GPS is more inaccurate than a 13th century map of the world.
