Summer 5% Challenge Goal and Trek Century Challenge
Saturday, July 11, 2020
It's good to be back for another 5% challenge. Not going to focus on how I got back up in weight but more on ways to get healthier. To that end a shout out to any cyclists looking to earn more than just a digital badge, as nice as they are, on Strava. Every July Trek holds a Century Challenge where finishers can get real prizes. I got a T-shirt from completling last year's challenge. This year they've made it more interesting with several levels of completion. Everyone who completes the challenge gets a limited edition mug. Ride 100 miles and you earn a bronze stem cap. Ride 500 miles and you get the silver. Ride 1000 miles and you'll get the gold. Just like the Olympics :) I'm aiming for gold but silver would look great on my bike as well. Son already has 15 miles under his belt and hopefully he'll earn bronze. Cycling is like weight loss: while we like going fast it's more important to be consistent and just keep swimming. I mean pedaling :)
Ride safe everyone!
PS My goal is to hit my 5% goal.
