Our monthly challenges are always free.

Running from Saturday June 30th to Sunday July 22th 2012, the 99th Tour de France will be made up of 1 prologue and 20 stages and will cover a total distance of 3,479 kilometers.

This is an indoor/ outdoor challenge. So indoor trainer, stationary bike or outdoor rides. I will post once a week on the FB group page and you will post your mileage. We will cycle everyday that the tour is going on, you decide how much you ride. Time bonuses for outdoor rides. All miles logged during the tour count. If there is a rest day, no miles count. Prizes for the top 2 male and female from our sponsors.

Guidelines & more details TBA.

Invite all your friends. The top finishers, male and female, will receive prize packages from our sponsors (this contest its VEGA & LARABAR) as well as Team Green items. Or you could just do it to stay in shape and challenge yourself. =)

Good point, fitness goals should be higher priority than winning free stuff. Although that's not always the case. The competition sounds good though!

Sounds pretty awesome. I have a 68 mile ride on the 30th, so a good way to kick off the challenge.

I do 8 mile round trip office/home bike commute, grocery shop & take kids to bus stop.
Only thing is, I use two different bikes. Both have "sport odometers" can I combine
the milage?

Ted, you should make a Strava group for this! Anyone with an android or iphone can download it for free.
That would help keep people on track and see how everyone else is doing also.
