New monthly color! Go on a 120 km ride for access to our totally redesigned Gran Fondo kits.
Challenge Ended: October 31, 2015
Complete a Gran Fondo this season and you’ll gain access to our new Road Rhythm kits, inspired by the street signs and road markings we fly past every day.
September, October and November will each have unique colors of the same design. Finish a fondo at any time this season and you’ll gain access to this classic black and white color scheme, while October and November will have special colorways in addition to the good ol’ B+W.
Ride for the jersey, or just ride for yourself. Either way, grab some friends and go for a big ride.
Complete the Challenge and you will unlock the ability to purchase a limited edition Gran Fondo Jersey. This jersey will only be available to those who complete the Gran Fondo Challenges.
The 2015 Strava Challenge jersey features a sweatproof zippered pocket for your mobile device, reflective tabs to ensure visibility, and textured stretch fabric on the sleeves and side panels for improved aerodynamics.
The purchasing window will close 5 days after the Challenge ends. The expected delivery time is 6 weeks.
Athletes who complete this Challenge will receive a Gran Fondo digital finishers badge in their Trophy Case.
You have to ride 120 kilometers in a single ride, and the elapsed time of the ride must be under 24 hours.
To ensure you meet the Challenge goal, we recommend you ride a small amount over 120 kilometers during your activity (about 3 km / 2 mi). This will give you a buffer in the event your activity distance is shortened after upload to Strava due to the cleanup of GPS irregularities. You can learn about how distance is calculated for our app by reading this Knowledge Base Article.
The Challenge period starts and ends based on each riders local time zone.
Manual entries or trainer rides will not count towards your Challenge effort.
All activities logged during the Challenge period must be uploaded to Strava no later than three days after the Challenge ends.
Ride hard and be safe. Use common sense when it comes to traffic, weather, or other conditions while taking part in this Challenge. Remember to take care of your hydration and nutrition needs when you’re out on the road.
