The Ride the Rock Challenge is an event to give cyclists and triathletes a focus for training and a goal to achieve. The Challenge is to ride the equivalent of the length of Vancouver Island during the month of May.

It is 571 Kilometers from the Mile Zero Monument in Victoria to Cape Scott at the northern tip of Vancouver Island. You can ride outside, on a trainer, rollers, your spin bike, or on anything that is human powered with pedals. Log your distance and submit proof to us via the link.

Proof can be in the form of device files or simply a photo of your bike computer screen or watch face. It just needs to include the date and distance.

Everyone who enters the Ride the Rock Challenge will receive a commemorative plaque. As you reach your goals you will receive medallions that mount on the plaque to reward your progress. There is a medallion for reaching the halfway point (roughly Campbell River) and a finisher medallion for completing the 571K. There is a special medallion for anyone who is able to ride the equivalent of there and back, or 1142K in the month.

You can track your progress on the Ride the Rock Challenge progress page listing participants and their total mileage, updated daily. This page will be accessible to the public so that your friends and family can follow your ride.

These are challenging times for everyone, particularly for athletes. Covid 19 has caused the cancellation of races, events, and training camps. Physical Distancing makes it impossible to train with our teammates or training partners.
