How do I encourage another user? How do I get credit for encouraging a new or existing rider?

When a user logs their first ride (and first ride in a challenge), they're asked if someone encouraged them to ride. If they type in your name, you get credit for encouraging them! So you can encourage a user any way you like (by sending them high fives, messages, or being there in person to guide and support them) - just make sure they credit you when they sign up and log that ride.

Who is a new rider? Who is not?

When someone joins the site they fill out a baseline survey - everyone is then designated a new rider or existing rider based on the information they provide during that survey. New riders are folks who've rarely ridden in the last 12 months. 

How do I sync with an app?

You can sync with apps like Strava, Endomondo, MapMyRide by visiting your profile page settings, and following the relevant link and instructions there. 

Why aren't my app rides showing up yet? Why are some of them missing?

Our system pulls data in batches and relies on the other app to push those batches, so it may take time for your rides to show up in Love to Ride. Rest assured, your info will be pulled over - it just may take a couple of hours. If it's not there the next day, send us an email and we'll take a look.

NB. Stationary, indoor and virtual rides (logged with Zwift for instance) are not imported to the Challenge site.

What counts as a commute?

All rides tagged as rides to/from work count as commutes. Rides to/from other destinations should use some of the other tags. 

Individual Top Commuter leaderboards count all days tagged as rides to/from work and add them up for the given period. The same thing applies on the the Group leaderboards for Most Commute Days. All team members' rides to/from work are added to see get the total. 

How do I log a ride to/from work?

  • Go to your profile
  • Scroll down to your rides
  • Find the ride you want to edit and click the little pencil icon
  • Choose 'transport to/from work' in the dropdown and click 'Save'. 
  • The ride will update after you refresh the page. 

If you use Strava, then you can tag your ride as 'commute' and then it will come across as ride to/from work on your Love to Ride profile automatically. Please make sure you only use the commute tag in Strava for rides to/from work to keep the leaderboards fair for all riders :)

Can I see more stats?

Yes! At the top of your profile page you can specify the year, Challenge, or get all-time stats on how far you've ridden, how many trips you've logged, and more.

How do I find my friends?

You can find folks by looking at the team list and finding their workplace, then scrolling down to them on the roster. We're working to make this easier in the future though!
