May Expresso Bike Challenge: Double Challenge Month

This is a double challenge month.

Lets start with King of the Mountain.

It’s simple. Ride as many mountainous tours as you can. Each tour has a corresponding number of points designated by its elevation (Mountain Points). The more elevation you climb, the more points you will receive. Riders who reach 50 points will receive a King of the Mountains Badge and unlock the ability to purchase the Official King of the Mountains jersey. Plus each rider who earns their badge will be entered into a lottery to win $100!

You can check the chart out here and see how many points each run is worth and plan your run.

Second challenge:

Fourth Annual Giro.

You can check out details.

April Expresso Bike Challenge: Dragon Hunter @PDXGym

Okay. I will selfishly admit it.

I am HAPPY to see this.

It is a simple challenge.

You ride Dragon Hunter to a million points. I know this seems hard but if you do it right you can actually accomplish this in one to two rides. (I can do it in one if done right). It is all about strategy.

Riders that earn 1 million points on the Dragon Fit games (or Proving Grounds on vintage chariots) will receive the Dragon Hunter Badge, unlock the special edition Dragon Hunter Jersey, and be entered into the Top 100 Lottery for a chance to win $100.

The fitness center – “team” – with the most points will win the official Dragon Hunter Trophy.

Expresso Ride of the Week: (@PDXGym): Lost Trail

Congratulations to all who finished the first ride of the week. Week 2 ROTW is:

Welcome to our second Ride of the Week (ROTW), where we pick one road every week for you to explore with the riders from your team and thousands of others from around the world.

This week is LOST TRAIL! Tropical trees and Mayan ruins await in the jungles of Central America, but don’t stop too long to take in the scenery!

Complete the ride to earn your badge. Every road has it’s own badge so make sure you don’t miss out or you will have to wait a long time for the ride to be featured again. Ride fast to climb the leaderboards and lay claim to the top spot in your age group and circle of friends! Ride as many times as you need to. Only your fastest will count.

You don’t need to sign up for the ROTW online. You just need to sign in on your Expresso Bike and finish your ride during the week! New rides will be announced each Sunday and you’ll have through the end of Saturday to finish them. The ride of the week starts and stops at midnight USA Eastern.

Whole Ton of Expresso News for @pdxgym

I am so sorry.

I have been in a bit of a writing rut.

First off the Janurary challenge is simple.

5,000 calories.

(Click pop out for more details)

But there are THREE new year long challenges.

Number 1:

What better way to make 2016 great than by riding 2016 km!?! You’ve got it in you. We know you do. Get on your Expresso bike and go nuts. Your legs, your heart and your mind will thank you when you’re done. Not to mention that you will earn yourself the ultimate Expresso badge of honor for going the distance. Registration is required. Only the rides you do after you register will count!

P.S. This is 1253 miles for those of us who think in English units, but we’re not stopping you from riding 2016 miles either!

Number 2:
What do 90 Big Macs, 2000 Carrots, and this challenge have in common? 50,000 Calories! Burn it and Earn it! You have the whole year to ride to reach your goal and earn your badge, but take it from us… It will be a lot more fun if you stay consistent! Registration is required. Only the rides you do after you register will count!

Fun Fact: A pound of body fat equates to approximately 3,500 Calories, so by the time you earn your badge you will be about 14 pounds lighter! Ok well, maybe not exactly, but you get the idea!

Number 3:
This is the ultimate stage race! Ride every tour on the Expresso Bike during the year earn your badge. Your best time on each tour in 2016 will make up your total time on the leaderboards! Registration is required. Only the rides you do after you register will count!

This challenge takes guts, determination and a sense of adventure. According to our checklist you have all three of these traits, so what are you waiting for? Let’s ride!

And its simple.
How many miles can we get in as a team before Thanksgiving?
