I am going to throw down these challenges to anyone and everyone. Pick your poison and post up you progress. E-Bikes make it so easy to get out there but maybe some additional motivation to kick this up a notch. I may go get some sponsors/prizes if activity is strong. Here are the challenges:

1) 1,000,000 footies in a year - Climb 1M feet from April 1st, 2021 to March 31st, 2022. (Avg. 2,740 feet climbed per day)
2) 750,000 footies in a year - Climb 750,000 feet from April 1st, 2021 to March 31st, 2022. (Avg. 2,054 feet climbed per day)
3) 500,000 footies in a year - Climb 500,000 feet from April 1st, 2021 to March 31st, 2022. (Avg. 1,369 feet climbed per day)
4) 250,000 footies in 3 months - Climb 250,000 from April 1st, 2021 to June 30th 2021. (Avg. 2,747 feet climbed per day)
5) Pick your own challenge and keep us posted on progress right here!!

Bikes only please.

Who's in? Good luck and post up!!

Not if you make some realistic goals :cool: Where I live I have to drive 45 mins to get hills, so I would go broke buying gas to be a champion

I want to hit a million feet total 2021, but that will include motos, gas and electric. To be fair, 80% of my moto rides get less elevation gain per hour than my ebike rides, considering my idea of fun is trying to ride down cliffs and up creek beds.

My primary goal for this will the the 250,000 footies Q2. I got 222,057 Q1 but that month was all about trail building with a bunch of moto days thrown in. I am already off to a good start with 4 rides and 18,400 footies...if I can stay injury free, I might get lucky! I need 82,410 in April to be on track.

Hope to see some challenge accepts but no biggie if not. Cheers!

Stout for one battery! Nice work. My buddy just ordered one of those, BTW. Coming in July! ;)
2 battery ride. Both had plenty of juice when I swapped them, but having 2 just opens up so much more riding possibilities. I also like to alternate which one I use to hopefully wear them evenly.

Looks like I'm flying solo and that's a-ok my friends. Half way thru April and looking solid. About 4 rest days banked so should be a-ok...as long as I don't get injured. Have a great weekend everyone...I'll check back end of month.
