WINTERTIDE RISING FAQ

1. What type of riding counts toward the CCNS Wintertide Rising Challenge?
All of it! Road, MTB, Fatbike, outside or inside. Easy rides, hard rides,
and everything in between. It just needs to be tracked to count!

2. How are my hours tracked?
Through the Strava Club. The club will be the primary method for tracking all hours completed. It is recommended that ride files be saved for each ride. If any totals on Strava are deemed suspicious, we will request ride files to verify. This is serious business folks!

3. Can I upload rides to Strava at any time during the week?
No. All rides must be uploaded by midnight on the same day they are completed.

4. Do I have to do the group rides?
No. The group rides are a way to bring everyone together and rack up the hours. With that in mind, feel free to buddy up anywhere with friends, family, and teammates to help you get your hours in.

5. What happens if there is bad weather?
If the weather keeps any scheduled group rides from happening, we will notify participants via the CCNS Facebook Page.

6. Can I enter after Sunday the 25th?
No. Registration on Bikereg closes at 1:00 PM on the 25th. No riders will
be accepted afterward.

7. Can I use my bike with a "riding desk" setup or one of those under-desk cycling trainers you see advertised on public access at 1 AM?
Maybe? We will flag and investigate rides with a power output that is incredulously low. To be fair to all, riding time must be spent purposefully riding! This is serious business!
