Ride the March Mile Challenge

Return to latest news
March Miles 2012 It's that time again. Spring is just around the corner it's time to dust off the bike (if you haven't already) and put in some base miles to get in shape for 2012 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 Team Sky adidas jersey signed by the pro riders and other goodies from Gatorade and Map My Tracks

The challenge is simple: ride hard and ride long in March and be in with a chance to win a Team Sky adidas 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 includes:
Team Sky adidas jersey signed by the riders of the team
One year subscription to Map My Tracks PLUS
Team Sky Gatorade bottle and starter pack
Map My Tracks mobile wallet

The two runners up will receive a one year subscription to Map My Tracks PLUS, Team Sky Gatorade bottle & starter pack and Map My Tracks mobile wallet. Everyone that enters will receive a memento of their efforts with a new badge for their Map My Tracks profile.

This year we are also looking for some photos of you in action. Upload photos to the Map My Tracks Facebook page with details of your rides.

How to participate

To participate in this challenge simply upload evidence of your rides to Map My Tracks and tag them ‘MarchMiles2012’. All tagged rides will be featured on the MarchMiles2012 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 2012 and tagged with ‘MarchMiles2012’. 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.

Good luck to everyone. Stay safe on the roads.
