    🛣 (20 points): for each 100 total miles
    ⛰ (10 points): for every 2500 ft total elevation gain
    🚴 (10 points): for each single ride of 30+ miles

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

  • May: Complete The Calendar (and EDIM)

    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: Save the low milage 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:

    • complete your calendar: 10 points
    • choose a Duo Team Name: 5 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

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

    In addition, register for Bike for Humanity, make a $25 donation, and ride at least 15 miles on May 1 to earn 20 additional May GOGO points. Bike for Humanity’s May 1 event will raise funds for Free Bikes 4 Kidz and the challenge of putting a million bikes in the hands of underserved youth. During registration make sure to indicate that you are part of Team ElliptiGO!
