Coming in May 2021
Ride The Park Trifecta
Ride the parks your style. You select the trails and collect the mileage. Ride any of the 3 parks as much as you would like during the month and self report your total mileage to by May 31. Top 10 will need to provide proof of mileage.
Making Event History, SWAMP proudly presents the
SWAMP MONTHLY CHALLENGE SERIES
Admittedly, 2020 was a year packed with challenges that we are all doing our best to conquer. Let’s take it to the trails!
Since Covid has blocked all our in-person fundraising events, our event Dream Team has come up with a series of self-motivated “Get Out and Ride” fundraising challenges that will be offered monthly. We invite you to participate on any level, new rider, endurance, or race pace. SWAMP is working closely with a company called TerraQuest, a phone app that assists riders learning or improving their time on the trail systems using custom turn-by-turn voice prompt technology. This cutting edge technology, currently in its infancy, is being developed to eventually run on wearables such as Apple or Samsung watches, Google Glass, among other devices.
Think of TerraQuest as your personal trail guide! Swamp is proud to present our virtual concierge service. Don't know your way around our trails? What a great way to learn them. Voice guided prompts will take you through a series of trails that are designed for your riding skill or selection. Enjoy an endurance experience, focus on more technical trails or do a combination of both technical and enduro. Our voice prompted queues will allow you to navigate through our trail systems, concentrating on your goals or just taking in the beauty that surrounds you. Leave the directions to the prompts!
A host of volunteers have made this project a reality. However, special thanks go to Karen Bickford, who has worked tirelessly mapping routes, changing data, and accommodating all the input from our testing team. It truly takes a village to raise a child and this event is no exception. Hats off to all of you!
On behalf of Swamp Mountain Bike Club and our famous Dream Team, it is my pleasure to invite you to help us make history by supporting our very first challenge in the series. Registration is and will remain open until the challenge closes. Coming from out of town? No problem, you have the whole month to participate and can ride the route as many times as you wish. Details can be found on the Registration page.
