Are you ready to Get Out and GO?

Get Out and GO (GOGO) is an eight-month riding program full of fun, social, individual and community riding activities. Last season, 270+ participants from around the world logged more than 500,000 miles and 14 million feet of climbing while having fun seeking personal achievement and GOGO swag (see the 2021 details and leaderboards). Each season, one of the most exciting events is the month-long September Team Challenge. 2022 will be our sixth season and we hope you’re looking forward to joining us!

GOGO 2022 runsΒ from March 1 through October 31, 2022.

GOGO 2022 schedule

  • March: Get GOing (175 points maximum)

    First, earn 5 points for putting #points in the title of any Strava post between March 1st and March 6th. (Why? This is “practice” for the new rule of using putting #points in ride titles for any official rides you do for extra GOGO points. See the rules page for details.)

    Throughout the month, earn up to 170 riding points from the categories below based on your riding style, schedule, and weather.

    • 5 points for every 5 days of riding (minimum of 2 miles is needed to count as a day of riding)
    • 5 points for every 25 miles cumulative distance
    • 5 points for every 1500 feet cumulative elevation gain
    • 10 points for each single ride over 20 miles
    • 10 points for each single ride over 1500 feet of elevation gain

    Properly measured trainer rides are permitted, but will be credited with no elevation. Credit for all manual entries (no GPS track outdoors, no speed sensor indoors) is limited to 5 miles per day.

  • April: GOmoji Around the World (195 points maximum)

    Individual Adventure (175 points maximum): Collect emoji in any quantity or combination you like.
    πŸ›£ (20 points): for each 100 total miles
    β›° (10 points): for every 2500 ft total elevation gain
    🚴 (10 points): for each single ride of 30+ miles
    β˜€ (10 points): for every 10 days of riding (minimum of 2 miles is needed to count as a day of riding)
    🌐 for the first 24.9 total miles ridden

    In addition, you may earn each of the following by posting a ride to Strava with the hashtag in the title along with a fitting photo. Only one hashtag per ride, please.
    🌎 (5 points): #earth 🌬 (5 points): #wind
    πŸ”₯ (5 points): #fire , 🌊 (5 points) for #water

    If you collect ALL nine emoji above you’ll also earn: πŸ† (20 points)

    Group Adventure (20 points maximum): Let’s ride around the world for Earth Month. For every 24,901 mile circumnavigation of the globe by the group (up to two), individuals who have earned the 🌐 emoji will get an additional 10 points.

    As an example, the leaderboard will display your individual emoji collection like this:
    πŸŒπŸ›£πŸ›£πŸ›£β›°β›°πŸš΄πŸš΄πŸŒŽπŸŒ¬πŸ”₯

    Properly measured trainer rides are permitted, but will be credited with no elevation. Credit for all manual entries (no GPS track outdoors, no speed sensor indoors) is limited to 5 miles per day.

  • May: Complete The Calendar (and EDIM) (210 points maximum)

    Ride alone or participate as a DUO. As a DUO you will combine your daily mileage with that of your partner. GOGO will do the matchmaking. You might make a friend halfway around the world! If you’re up for it, ride Every Day In May (EDIM) and earn individual bonus points.

    Ride daily mileage equal to (or greater than) a numerical calendar day to fill in a calendar date. You do not have to complete calendar days in order: 1 mile on the 1st, 2 miles on the 2nd, 3 miles on the 3rd and so forth. Instead, fill your calendar in any order: If you GO 35 miles on May 1st, you’ll fill in the spot for May 31st. If you ride 20 miles on May 1st, you will fill in the date for May 20th. If you ride 20 miles again, you will fill in the largest unfilled number below 20: if May 19th and 18th are filled but the 17th is not, you’ll fill the May 17th slot.

    Helpful Hint: Ride big early and save the low mileage calendar days for last or for days when work/school/life necessitates quicker, low mileage rides.

    You earn 5 points for each calendar day filled in for a maximum of 155 calendar points. E.g. 31 days yields 155 points (31 x 5), while 20 days yields 100 (20 x 5). If you have a partner, you each earn the points.

    To be eligible for May points, a rider must ride at least 25 total miles during the month.

    Bonus point opportunities:

    • participate in a DUO: 5 points
    • complete your calendar: 10 points
    • EDIM Bonus: Any rider who rides at least 1 mile each day of the month will earn bonus points based on total mileage as follows:

      • 496+ miles: 40 points
      • 248+ miles: 25 points
      • 62+ miles: 10 points
  • June: Details TBA (185 points maximum)
  • July: Details TBA (225 points maximum)
  • August: Details TBA (180 points maximum)
