2021 3RVS Approved September Touring Challenge Rules

3RVS Members - The 8th Annual Three Rivers Velo Sport September Touring Challenge begins Wednesday, September 1 and runs through Thursday, September 30, 2021. Below are the official rules from Touring Director Michael Souers. Please read and be aware of the rules.

Awards will be presented at our annual End of Season Party to club members who join this club challenge and log their cycling distance on Strava. Awards will be presented to 3RVS members who bicycle 500, 750, 1000, or 1610 kilometers (1,000 miles) from September 1 through September 30, 2021. Your distance for any bicycling event, either a club tour, race, off road, riding by yourself, on a virtual program such as Zwift which auto-transfers your ride from a smart trainer to Strava will be accepted as long as the ride is uploaded to Strava. E-bike mileage will not be counted for this event. No manual entries will be accepted unless your recording device fails during your ride, in which case you may enter your lost miles as a manual entry along with the portion of the ride that was recorded offering an explanation for the lost distance in the description box. Your Strava account must be opened to accept 3RVS members to follow you without asking for a request. To join the 3RVS September Touring Challenge, go to www.strava.com/clubs/3rvs and sign up. The Strava September Touring Challenge page is a closed group for club members only. After you apply to join the challenge your 3RVS membership will be verified. Once verified your place on the roster will be approved.

If you were a 3RVS member last year and joined the 3RVS September Touring Challenge you are likely already pre-registered for this year’s challenge provided you are still a 3RVS member. If you are unsure if you are signed up go to your Strava Profile, look under Clubs for the Three Rivers Velo Sport September Touring Challenge logo. If it is on your Profile you are registered. Non-3RVS members may not participate in this challenge and have been removed from the group page. Non-members may join 3RVS then sign up for the challenge. Only kilometers ridden after joining 3RVS will be counted in the challenge. In addition to the awards mentioned above, podium awards will be presented to the top 3 female and male finishers. To view the daily kilometer leaderboard go to: www.americanclassicgroup.com/3rvs/3rvschallenge.htm it will be activated Wednesday, September 1, 2021, about 8:30 PM. The leaderboard page will be updated each day about 8:30 PM. If you do not see your miles recorded on a particular day, you likely updated your ride after, or your information did not migrate to the September Touring Challenge page by the cutoff time. Not to worry your miles will be picked up the following day with the exception of the final day, September 30. If you visit the Leaderboard page daily please click the refresh button each visit to ensure you are viewing the most recent update.

Your weekly distances must be posted on your Strava page at least once per week, but no later than 11:59 PM., each Sunday. Questions may be directed to Touring Director Michael Souers, via email at: touring@3rvs.com, or Steve Pequignot at: spequignot@aol.com. Distance entries will conclude at 11:59 PM., September 30, 2021. Results will be finalized and posted October 1, 2021. Please be aware of our privacy setting requirements during the challenge. All members are asked to have their Profile Page, Activities View, Group Activities and Flyby set to Everyone. All podium finishers MUST have all rides open for review during the challenge.

Any ride(s) not open for review will be deducted from monthly distance totals before the results become final October 1. Members who do not have these settings in place may also lose the mileage for distance awards.

To check/set your view settings open your Strava account, click on the second from right icon (your photo if you use one) along the top bar, select Settings on the drop down menu, select Privacy Controls in the left column, select Everyone in the Profile Page, Activities, Group Activities, and Flyby settings.

Using these settings everyone can view each of your rides during the challenge. Once the challenge ends you may change your settings as you see fit.

Daily rides must be entered to Strava and migrated to the September Touring Challenge by 8:30 PM to be included in the daily update. Keep in mind, when Strava has heavy traffic it sometimes takes up to 30 minutes for a ride to migrate from your page to the club’s September Touring Challenge page.

If your ride is not included in a daily update it means that ride has not migrated to the club page by the time of the update (usually about 8:30 PM). That ride will be picked up during the following daily update except for Sundays. All weekly Strava mileage must be posted and migrated to the club’s Strava page no later than 11:59 PM each Sunday. After that time all prior weekly mileage is locked.
