    NOTE: Trainer miles are allowed for the distance and days categories.

  • May 1-31: EVERY DAY IN MAY: DUO and SOLO

    Points levels are the same for DUO and SOLO. The same maximum 250 point total is available to DUO and SOLO riders.

    Each partner of an EDIM DUO pair who contributes at least 25 total miles gets the specified points, even if one rides much more than the other.

    In addition, any individual (whether a DUO team member or a SOLO rider) who rides at least 5 miles on 25 or more days will receive 25 bonus points.

    Point levels

    20+ miles Every Day in May = 225 points
    10+ miles Every Day in May = 175 points
    5+ miles Every Day in May = 125 points

    28 Days in May

    20+ miles for 28 days = 200 points
    10+ miles for 28 days = 150 points
    5+ miles for 28 days = 100 points

    25 Days in May

    20+ miles for 25 days = 100 points
    10+ miles for 25 days = 75 points
    5+ miles for 25 days = 50 points

    Trainer rides are allowed BUT contribute a maximum of 5 miles per person per day. That is, if a rider does a 12 mile trainer ride, he or she gets credit for 5 miles. If that rider also does a 16 mile outdoor ride, 21 miles would be credited for the day.

    Examples:
    1) GOrider1 of a DUO pair rides 12 miles per day for the first 10 days of May, and GOrider2 of the same pair rides 15 miles per day from May 5 through May 31, yielding 31 days of 10+ miles for the pair. GOrider1 receives 175 points for team’s successful completion of 10+ miles every day in May GOrider2 receives 200, gaining the 25 point bonus for riding at least 5 miles on 25 or more days.
    2) an EDIM SOLO rider completing 31 days of 10+ miles per day would receive 200 points.
