The Riding Solo Series is a low-key high-fun factor dispersed cross-country mountain bikes held over 4 weeks on the trails in and around Bend, OR. Riding Solo enables you to race how you want, when you want, against real racers on real courses for position and awesome prizes and unlockable perks.
This year's series features 4 one-week long stages featuring a different course each week. In the spirit of the Tour de France, overall leaders (by gender + category) are awarded yellow arm sleeves to wear while riding as they maintain their lead in their respective category. At the end of the series, the gender + category champions will go "head-to-head" in a one-week long "winner takes all" shootout race where rider starts times are equalized, using their average times from the series and what we project to be their results given the shootout course requirements. The winner received an super incredible Grand Prize!
Each stage can be run as many times as you'd like during the week-long stage time window. The first time you've completed each course, you'll unlock awesome perks like a $5 pub coupon from 10 Barrel, a 12-oz drip from Thump Coffee, 2-for-1 go karting at K1 Speed, and other local sponsors.
But wait there's more, every time you complete a course, you add another entry into a weekly raffle with killer prizes K1 Speed, Banana Phone, and other awesome sponsors.
All you need is a helmet, a bike, and a GPS-enabled device like a Garmin, Wahoo, or smart phone.
