Friends, there are still 7 weeks of bike riding and brain supporting! Below are a couple of options on how you can be involved in a way that suits your 2020 summer style:
Option 1. TACKLE A CLIMBDURO CALGARY CHALLENGE
Option 2. CREATE YOUR OWN UNIQUE RIDE
Option 1: Tackle a Climbduro Calgary Challenge
On August 1st, three (3) new cycling challenges around Calgary and area will go live on our partner cycling app, Climbduro.
Challenge 1. SPRINT - 58KM | 560M Elev. | 2 - 3 hrs
(Starts on Lower Springbank Road just past the intersection at 17th Ave SW and ends just before that same intersection)
Challenge 2. ENDURANCE - 105KM | 1250M Elev. | 3.5 - 5.5 hrs
(Starts and ends near Granary Road Market and passes through Black Diamond, Turner Valley and Priddis)
Challenge 3. ADVENTURE - 142KM | 1490M Elev. | 5 - 8 hrs
(Starts on lower Spring Bank Road and goes out by the Springbank Airport, then through Bragg Creek to Elbow Falls Campground and back through Bragg Creek to Springbank Road)
Option 2: Create Your Unique Ride
Using an app not your thang? Are your cycle legs not quite ready to peddle 60KM? Social-distancing summer plans filling up? NO PROBLEM!
Let's not over complicate things. Simply make up your own ride! Whether you ride 10KM or 100KM, ride for an hour or all day, it's entirely up to you.
Step 1: Pick a date between now and August 31st to complete your ride.
Step 2: Let your friends and family know about your plans and invite them to support you with a donation on your personal fundraising page.
Step 3: Ride your ride, solo or with friends and show off your biking and brain supporting accomplishments on social (#BikingForBrains)!
However you decide to participate, congrats in advance for helping to accelerate tech and non-pharma solutions to neurological disorders like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and many others.
