Everyone is a winner. Whether this is rep for coming 1st, or taking part. Push harder.
Virtual cycling is the act of taking part in an event where you complete a target value (Distance, Elevation or Time etc). When you complete the event target you are rewarded for your efforts.
For sure! We let you choose when you ride, so why not WHERE you ride? You can ride outdoors, but also on static/indoor trainers. But please note that you will be marked on the leaderboard differently if you use a static/indoor trainer.
The only requirement is that it records time, speed and distance. If the event is an elevation event it will need to record elevation also.
It's quite simple.
Definitely! These are virtual events, so anyone, anywhere can take part. The only difference is that rewards can only be shipped to UK mainland residents only, as we don't ship internationality.
Events will also be based around UK time, so if the event cut off is 16:30pm you will need to complete the event by 16:30pm GMT.
You can use any GPS cycling computer as long as it can record your required target. E.g. If your target is 50 mile, make sure that your cycling computer records distance. It's better to ensure you have full GPS signal before starting your activity.
Use your favourite GPS cycling computer/watch/app and do your ride to your target distance or elevation etc. Once you've finished your ride, ensure you end it and sync with Strava. Then don't sweat, we've got you covered... Your activity will be synced from Strava to Gain+Glory.
If your data hasn't synced contact us.
Rewards are dispatched 7 working days after the event has finished, not when you completed the event. If you finish the event with 20 days to go until the event ends, you will still need to wait until the event has finished before we process the rewards - Speedy pants.
This is because in some rare cases rewards may be custom and require a bit of extra time to be printed.
