The Global BDOVELO Personal Challenge Ride is a unique event designed to demonstrate how active our BDOVELO community is and enjoy a little fun at the same time. The aim is to replace our current ride programme now postponed until further notice due to Covid 19 with your own personal challenge. To take part, register your own personal rides over the course of a 4 week period (16 May - 14 Jun) using the Map my Tracks website and App. Remember to follow the current cycling advice.
As rides are completed and recorded a global "heat map" will grow showing where our BDOVELO community is riding.
