RIDE MORE – RIDE BETTER (RMRB)

  • We will host an array of clinics for rider development throughout the season in conjunction with rec rides. Some examples of focus area would be bike handling drills, climbing, drafting, CX, cornering. If there is something you’d like to work on shoot me a message and I’ll do my best to line it up.
  • Challenges and Winner Category changes for this year!!! We will focus on getting folks out on their bikes as much as possible. This RMRB season we will try getting new folks and seasoned folks out as much as possible then move to more challenging efforts. We will start the first 3 months with most rides in a month. Doesn’t matter if it’s a mile or 100 miles, JUST RIDE! Then we will switch to longest rides and perhaps a wild card month, stay tuned. Male and Female winners will receive a $25 gift card to Sussex Bike Shop plus one lucky draw will receive a Sussex Bike gift card or a surprise swag gift.
  • Again this year!!! Real-time mileage and ride tracking through Strava. For those of you with a little competition in your blood, or just a data geek, you can use Strava for tracking your mileage, rides, and elevation gain throughout the season. You do not need to have a Garmin or GPS enabled bike computer. You can use your smartphone by downloading the FREE Strava app or just log into Strava.com and manually input your ride information at the end of your ride. If you’re interested in joining the club page, please do so! We’d love to have you! If it’s not your cup of tea; don’t worry just send me your results at the end of each challenge period.
  • NOTE: For Skylands Cycling team racers, we also provide a Rider Reimbursement program. For more details on this program click here.

PURPOSE

  • The purpose of this initiative is to provide incentives for beginner and intermediate riding members to strengthen their riding fitness and cycling skills.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

  • To encourage club recreational riders to ride more often.
  • To acknowledge club members who volunteer to lead club recreational rides.

PROGRAM GOALS

  • To monthly reward club recreational rider members who partake in the various challenges and riding outside of their comfort zone over the course of the cycling year.
  • To recognize club members who complete charity and century rides. Send us your pictures! We’d love to see them and share with the group!

PROGRAM GUIDELINES

  • All recreational riders are eligible to participate (sorry racers.)
  • Miles reported as ridden is underscored by the HONOR SYSTEM.
  • Monthly prizes will be awarded to the top male and female per challenge cycle.
  • Only actual road or mountain bike miles ridden count (sorry, no indoor trainer miles.)
  • You can only win two consecutive months. If you win a third month in a row, we will still log your achievement for the year end award, but the gift certificate will be awarded to the person who logs the next highest achievement. However, you will be eligible for the monthly award the following month.

AWARDS

  • Multiple awards given each month.
  • Exception: Members who did ONE race with a one-day license for the experience and never raced again are eligible.
