Reese Ruland, George Simpson and Gavin Mannion are organizing a road Strava segment hunting series. The three-week series runs from June 8th until June 28th. A weekly $10 donation to the charity of your choice is requested. Full details below.
Concept-No racing is happening, we get it. Social distancing is a thing. We want to give everyone a challenge during the month of June. Each week race Strava segments, lowest time wins some prizes and the knowledge that you're the fastest person in town. We are asking that everyone donate $10 a week to a charity of their choice as an entry fee. This is the honor system, but if you feel like posting a photo of your donation to your Strava ride. Weekly winners who are 21+ will get a case of FatTire. Overall winners will get a Velocio gift card or FatTire swag and more beer if they want it.
-Name your ride- Stage #, FoCo SSH
-This is intended to be done as a Solo ride, #socialdistancing. No team time trials please.
-Each week starts on a Monday morning and ends on a Sunday night, you must ride the designated segments between those days.
-Stage 2 is TT bike optional but road bikes are perfect too, but stage 1 and 3 are road/gravel only, no aero equipment.
-Stage 1 and 3 are enduro style, can be ridden in any order, but must be done during the same ride. Segments are named "Stage 1 FoCo SSH a" and then "b" to make it easier to follow. Segments are described below.
-We will go through at the end of each week and create a results sheet to share with everyone. Planning to post on the club strava page.
