"The best time to train for an event was 6 months ago" or so the saying goes. Well, if you start training now, you'll be in great shape for summer!
CRW wants to help you get ready for the 2024 season by once again offering our winter ride challenge.
This year the challenge is time based; how many hours can you ride between December 15th to March 15th? We have three levels of accomplishment:
25 hours: Recreationalist
50 hours: Weekend Warrior
100 hours: Racer
Anyone who reaches any of these levels is entered into a raffle for some cool prizes. We're giving out bike lights, ear buds, and official CRW gloves. Five entrants from each level will win a prize.
We count both outdoor and indoor riding.
To log your miles:
Log into the crw.org website,
Click on your name at the top of the home page,
Click on Edit Profile,
Scroll down to the Time and Mileage Tracker and enter the numbers of hours of your latest ride in this field:
Scroll to the bottom and save.
Raffle drawing will be at the end of March. By then you'll be ready to tackle a new cycling season. Note this is all based on the honor system, and we are comfortable that you will all abide.
Embrace the challenge!"
