2020 has started in a very unique way. Because of that, we have decided to follow suit and do something unique as well. We are moving our annual Climbing Challenge from October to May. Usually, we promote the Climbing Challenge by saying, "As the race season winds down, many of us are stuck looking for something to do. We have great fitness and no event to use it in." Not anymore. May 22-24 will be year 6 of the ALP Cycles Climbing Challenge.
For this year's Challenge, we will have 3 days and 7-8hrs max (depending on age) to climb as much as possible (the contest will be kept track on Strava). We will have prizes and a photo contest!
The 3-day challenge is open to ALP, non-ALP, and wanna be ALP athletes/riders/racers (so invite your friends, family, and teammates).
For the first time ever, we're going to include virtual climbing. You read that right: repeats on Alpe du Zwift are now allowed. Just make sure to synch your Zwift account to Strava in order to have it count towards the challenge.
The Details: Starting Friday, May 22, and running through Sunday, May 24 we will conduct a social distancing appropriate Climbing Challenge.
