Welcome to the 2020 #ridelocal challenge!

We are hosting 8 weeks of challenges to help keep our Tour de Victoria community engaged and on their bikes this summer. Each week, we’ll have a “fun” challenge, and a “pro” challenge, so we welcome everyone to take part.

A big part of these challenges is to promote the beauty of cycling. We want to see you out on your bike and exploring your backyard and supporting local businesses in your community.

You can ride any kind of bike for these challenges.

Have fun!

Each week on Monday we will release the challenge of the week along with the prize incentives for participating. So stay tuned to your email and our social media for all the details.

  1. Sign up to Race Roster to be eligible for prizes.
  2. Go ride using your favourite tracking app.
  3. Post your result via your participant dashboard or send them to ridelocal@tourdevictoria.com
  4. Post on your social media and tag @tourdevictoria and use the hashtag #ridelocal
