How many days a week can you ride? This month, we’re going to find out!
Your challenge: ride as many days during the week as you can. Reward? One male club member, one female club member, and one non-club member will be receiving a gift certificate to the top cycling shop in southern Illinois, the Bike Surgeon of Carbondale!
So how do you compete? Every day that you ride, post a picture of yourself (pre-, post-, or during ride) to our club facebook page (or email) and share how many miles you tackled. Rides must be at least 10 miles long and only one ride per day will count. At the end of the week, the rider with the most days ridden for the week will receive an entry to the drawing being held at the end of the month. Five weeks, five chances to gain an entry. Every Sunday at midnight, the board is reset and the new week begins.
Since we’re awesome and the Bike Surgeon is awesome, we’ll actually be giving away three entries every week for one male and female club member and one non-member because…all cyclists are awesome! Alright, new challenges require rules and here are ours:
One. Rides must be at least 10 miles in distance.
Two. Riders must submit a picture of themselves each day they ride, posting on either club Facebook page or sending image to club email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Image should be accompanied by distance rode that day.
Three. All rides must be completed outdoors.
Four. Riders may submit only one ride per day.
Five. At the end of each week, the male and female rider with the most days ridden will receive an entry for the month’s prize. A separate entry will also be given to a non-club member with the most days ridden each week. (Three riders given an entry each week)
Six. In the event of a tie at the end of the week, the rider who first submitted a ride that week will receive the entry.
Seven. At the end of the month, there will be a random drawing for a male club member winner, a female club member winner, and a non-club member winner. Each category will have five possible entries, one for each week of the month.
Eight. Prizes will be awarded as follows: male club winner receives $25 gift certificate to the bike surgeon of Carbondale, female club winner receives $25 gift certificate to bike surgeon of Carbondale, and non-club member wins $15 gift certificate to the bike surgeon of Carbondale.
Nine. Contest will begin Monday, October 1 at 4:00 AM. Weekly time frame will begin every Monday morning at 12:01 A.M. and will end each Sunday at midnight. Posts/emails must be made during that time. Entries made outside of that timeframe will not be counted.
Ten. The final week will consist of Monday, October 29 through Wednesday, October 31 and will close at midnight.
