IMPORTANT GOGO RULES CHANGE due to impacts of the coronavirus: For many of us the GOGO season is a great stress reliever and something to look forward to. To keep us moving and physically active, GERC is making the following change to the GOGO rules: Effective Monday, March 16, until further notice (through at least the end of April 2020), ANY non-ride form of timed Strava activity, including manual entries, will contribute to GOGO at the conversion rate of 10 miles per hour of activity. For example, if you post 75 minutes of weight training, yoga, or walking on Strava, you’ll be credited with 12.5 miles of riding for GOGO purposes.
Are you ready to Get Out and GO?
Get Out and GO (GOGO) is an eight-month riding program full of a variety of fun, social individual and community riding activities.
