Are you ready to Get Out and GO?

Get Out and GO 2018 (GOGO) is a challenge program modeled after ElliptiGO’s previous “Get on the Map.” 2017’s inaugural edition of GOGO was a rousing success. One hundred GOGO participants from around the world logged more than 170,000 miles seeking fun, leaderboard glory, and GOGO swag. The 2017 leaderboards are here. One of this year’s most exciting events, the month-long Team Challenge, ended after a very tight contest among fives teams for distance, elevation, and days-ridden honors. We hope you look forward to even more fun in the 2018 edition!

GOGO 2018 runs from March 1 through October 31, 2018.

GOGO schedule

  • July 2-29: GOGO IM (Individual Medley) and IECD

    July’s GOGO challenge revisits the March, April, May, and June challenges as a medley of one-week mini challenges, with something different each week.

    Saturday, July 21st is also International Elliptical Cycling Day (IECD), with extra GOGO points available for any rides on that day.

    • Week 1, July 2-8: DISTANCE
      • 20 pts for 25 miles
      • 30 pts for 50 miles
      • 40 pts for 100 miles

      Please note that the start is Monday, July 2, not Sunday July 1.

    • Week 2, July 9-15: ELEVATION*
      • 20 pts for 1000 feet
      • 30 pts for 2500 feet
      • 40 pts for 5000 feet

      *Alternative: INCREASED DISTANCE option instead of climbing – 20 pts for 50mi, 30pts for 100mi, 40pts for 150mi

    • Week 3, July 16-22: MINI-EDIM
      • 3 pts for each day of 5 miles
      • 4 pts for each day of 10 miles
      • 6 pts for each day of 20 miles

    • Week 4, July 23-29: #REFLECTION: 8 pts for each ride on Strava with a photo uploaded and a different hashtag in the ride title:
      • #elliptigo
      • #friends
      • #love
      • #indulge
      • #selfie

      Note: you may post them in any order.

    • July 21, IECD: 1 pt per mile up to 50 miles.

      NOTE: IECD rides may be combined with the weekly challenge, official rides and/or Idai Makaya’s Longest Ride Challenge. For example, a 43 mile official ride on IECD would yield 69 total GOGO points: 20 points (official ride) plus 43 points (IECD) plus 6 points (EDIM).

  • June 1-30: June challenges.
    Following Every Day in May, GOGO takes an intensity break in June with
    five themed weekly goals. Rather than focusing on distance and
    climbing stats, ride with an “attitude of gratitude” and reflect on
    your ElliptiGO experiences.

    During any ride take a photo that’s your interpretation of the weekly theme,
    add it to your Strava post, and include the weekly hashtag (e.g. #beauty) in
    the title of your ride. You’re welcome to share additional thoughts or
    explanation in the description of your Strava entry. How does that
    long open stretch of road represent #fun? What symbolizes #honor to you?

    WEEKLY THEMES:

    June 1-3. #beauty
    June 4-10. #fun
    June 11-17. #gratitude
    June 18-24. #energy
    June 25-30. #honor

    Earn up to 25 points for each weekly theme. Post as many times as you
    like, but only one post is required for 25 points and must be posted
    with the weekly hashtag in the title before the beginning of the next
    week. There are no incorrect posts; it’s entirely up to your
    interpretation.

    GERC and/or ElliptiGO may repost or share some or all of the photos
    online, so only post photos that you would be comfortable seeing on
    social media.

  • May 1-31: Every Day in May DUO and SOLO. Ride at least 5 miles a days on 25 or more May days to earn GOGO points. This year’s twist: meet the requirements with the help of a partner! See details and sign up for DUO here
  • April 2-30: Keep GOing.

    GOGO points available:

    50 points for a total over 100 miles or 8000 ft during April 2-30
    75 points for 200 miles or 15,000 ft
    100 points for 400 miles or 30,000 ft
    125 points for 600 miles or 40,000 ft

    BONUS 25 points for any one ride in April 2 – 30 that is your longest distance or largest elevation gain since March 1.

    BONUS 10 points if you ride a new ElliptiGO SUB (even just a test ride – you don’t have to own one) and post a photo of it with your ride on Strava (and annotate that ride with “GOGO” so that the Club’s software “notices” the ride)

  • March 1 – October 31: Longest Ride Challenge Club member and ElliptiGO-rider extraordinaire Idai Makaya is undertaking yet another epic challenge, and GOGO is happy to partner with him. Earn 100 bonus GOGO points by joining Idai’s Longest Ride Challenge (http://idaimakaya.com/events/longest-ride/) and completing it during the GOGO season. Idai’s goal is to set a new Guinness World Record for the 2,700 kilometer round trip journey between John o’Groats and Land’s End, UK. Idai will be riding in memory of his brother, the skydiver Garai Makaya.
  • March 5-April 1: Get GOing.Weeks: March 5-11, March 12-18, March 19-25, March 26-April 1.

    GOGO points available:
    20 points for any week over 25 miles or 2000 ft elevation gain
    30 points for any week over 50 miles or 4000 ft elevation gain
    40 points for any week over 100 miles or 8000 ft elevation gain
    50 points for any week over 160 miles or 10000 ft elevation gain

    For example, if your weeks were 52mi/2600ft, 26mi/4200ft, 12mi/1100ft, and 175mi/5000ft, you’d receive 30 + 30 + 0 + 50 points for a March total of 110 GOGO points.

    Properly measured indoor trainer miles are allowed if they are on an ElliptiGO.
