My Tour De France Challenge

Ride for 21 days during July and stand to win great prizes!

It’s the middle of winter and it’s not only the average temperature that’s dropped… Motivation to keep riding plummets this time of the year. We’re all in the same situation. So why not join us and tackle the Cycle Lab My Own TdF Challenge?

Here’s how it works:

1. Join the Cycle Lab Official Strava Club. If you don’t have a Strava profile, create one, it’s free. You need at least a smartphone to be able to download the Strava app.

2. Ride each day of the 2018 Tour de France (21 rides in 23 days)

3. Make sure your ride is recorded on your Strava profile

4. Upload at least one image of your ride each day of the challenge on either your Instagram or Facebook profile (or both) and use the hashtags: #myowntdf #cyclelabactive

Everyone that completes the challenge as per the rules will go into the draw to win a Wahoo Kickr 3.0 home trainer worth R17 999! Because there should be a podium worth of prizes, we’ll give away 1x R5000 and 1x R2500 shopping vouchers too.

How long must each ride be?

On your bike outdoors, at least 1 hour; on an indoor trainer, 45 minutes. No exceptions.

When does the My Own TdF Challenge start and finish?

It follows the 2018 Tour de France schedule starting on Saturday 7 July and ending on Sunday 29 July. There are two rest days: Monday 16th and Monday 23rd. You may rest on those same days. You need to record via Strava and social media images 21 rides in 23 days.

What kind of images should I upload each day?

Anything that represents your ride or trainer session. You MUST ensure both hashtags are used with each post so we can find them. The most creative images will be shared via our Cycle Lab social media accounts. Those that have been shared will also go into a draw to win a R2500 Cycle Lab Shopping Voucher.

Even if you don’t win any of the prizes, you’ll have joined many other South Africans on the Cycle Lab My Own Tour de France Challenge in building your cycling fitness during July. And that, friends, is already a winning advantage…
