Join the March Miles Cycle Challenge and win a signed Team Sky jersey

Return to latest news
With signs of Spring just around the corner it's time to dust off the bike (if you haven't already) and put in some miles to get in shape for 2011 in the Map My Tracks March Miles Challenge. To help motivate you to get out riding and put in the miles the winner will receive a genuine Team Sky jersey signed by the pro riders.

The challenge is simple: ride hard and ride long in March and be in with a chance to win a genuine Team Sky jersey signed by the pro riders. The winner will be the person that logs the most miles ridden in March here on Map My Tracks.

First prize is Lars-Petter Nordhaug’s Team Sky jersey signed by fellow team mates including Bradley Wiggins, Alex Dowsett, Peter Kennaugh, Rigoberto Uran, Xabier Zandio, Juan Antonio Flecha, Christian Knees, Davide Appollonio, Dario David Cioni, Rusell Downing, Jeremy Hunt, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Kurt-Asle Arvesen and Lars-Petter Nordhaug.

The two runners up will receive a limited edition Map My Tracks jersey, new for 2011, and everyone that enters will receive a memento of their efforts with a new badge for their Map My Tracks profile. The badges are new so you’ll be amongst a select few that can brag about them.

How to participate

To participate in this challenge simply upload evidence of your rides to Map My Tracks and tag them ‘MarchMiles’. All tagged rides will be featured on the MarchMiles hub that provides a running total of everyone’s mileage so you’ll be able to keep track on what you need to do to win.

The challenge is free to enter and open to anyone that has a bike and can upload their rides to Map My Tracks. Qualifying rides will be any that are done in March 2011 and tagged with ‘MarchMiles’. Rides can be uploaded and tagged directly from a Map My Tracks mobile apps or imported from Garmin devices and any that output a GPX file. You’ll need a free account on Map My Tracks to participate so if you don’t have one already sign up now or log in with your Facebook account to get started.

We’ll be announcing the winner during the first week in April after all the miles have been checked. We’ll be making sure that only cycle rides are taken into account so don’t be tempted to jump in the car instead.
