Throughout May, riders everywhere are joining forces and creating Teams to ride more, encourage new riders, climb leaderboards and win amazing prizes.
Your Team can be formed of your friends, family, co-workers, riding club, dance class, book group - you name it! Teams can consist of up to ten people and you can ride anywhere, any time in May.
🎳 Teams are limited to a max of ten riders
🧑✈️ The rider who creates the Team is designated as ‘Captain’
🏊 Teams will compete in pools of 10 - the pools will be randomly selected
🏅 During the challenge, you’ll rack up points to climb your pool’s leaderboard
🚲 Every mile and day you ride and every person you encourage earns you points
🎁 The more points you have, the more prize entries you gain
⭐️ New riders* on your Team? Great! They earn double day and distance points
*A 'new rider' is someone who doesn't ride at all (yet), or less than once a month when they sign up to Love to Ride.
Apart from being a completely excellent human, as Team Captain, you are responsible for rallying your riders and cheering them on. By creating a Team, you are automatically the Team Captain.
Team Captains can access lots of helpful tips, tricks, and advice to get their Team excited in the Promo Pack. Click below to get you and your riders pumped about the Bike Month Challenge.
Mini leaderboards (aka pools) of 10 teams give every team a real chance of getting a podium finish, thus helping to drive competition and motivation throughout the month.
For the Bike Month Challenge, we’ve limited teams to 10 riders. This helps create a level playing field on the leaderboards. A massive team of 100+ people would accrue a lot more points than a team of 10. Also, smaller groups = more accountability, and getting people biking in small teams of friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers is an ideal opportunity to build confidence and community.
If you belong to a riding club or workplace with more than 10 people, you can create multiple teams. You can ignite some friendly competition among the teams or go for gold and each try to achieve a podium position in your pools’ leaderboards.
