Virtual Ride Challenge

This year we are offering both an in-person and virtual ride options! 

 

Virtual Ride Challenge Instructions

  1. Register as a rider.  If you are registered for the in-person ride on October 10th, you are automatically eligible to participate in the Virtual Ride Challenge.
  2. Join the Tour de Gem Strava Club. If you are an existing member, login to Strava, select “Explore/Clubs” from the main navigation menu. Enter “Tour de Gem” in the search field, and select “Join Club.”  To join the Tour de Gem Strava Club, click here.
  3. Track your progress. Once you have registered and joined our Tour de Gem Club, your activity will be automatically uploaded when using Strava to track your mileage and routes. As a club member, you can also view leader boards, club activity, other members' activity, and club posts. You must actively use the app in order for your progress to be tracked. 
  4. Win prizes! After October 10th, we will announce the winners for our Virtual Ride Challenge. Our prizes are listed below. 

 

Tour the Gems Instructions
