Ride The Parks Trifecta
Ride. Repeat. Compete.
We've put together challenge as part of SWAMP’s 2020-2021 Monthly Challenge Series FUNDRAISER and to get our community out riding and learning the trails. All challenges are self-supported. Please be socially responsible and follow CDC guidelines at all times. Get to know the trails... and if you know them can you beat your last best time? Swamp has worked with TerraQuest to build custom turn-by-turn voice prompt guided routes of our local trail systems to help you get familiar and improve your speed or just enjoy a relaxing, stress free ride.
TerraQuest is a must for navigation and can also be used for recording the ride or you can TQ for navigation only and your own favorite app for tracking to submit your stats. TerraQuest will only record unique miles, meaning if you repeat any segments TQ won't log that as part of your raw mileage. Details will be included in the email you'll receive after registering!
Use pavement to connect dirt sections but stay off the pavement as much as possible.
We're moving to participant self reporting to build the leaderboard. Send your ride stats to Pat Sanchez by last day of each month to get on the Challenge leaderboard.
Before you ride the distance challenges
It is no secret that there are extra demands attached to riding distances. Please be sure to carry extra water to stay hydrated and extra snacks for fuel.
If you are riding with a friend, consider traveling in separate cars. Park one at the second parking lot, loaded with extra hydration and fuel. Drive the other car to the starting line.
Also, stock some first aid supplies and don't leave home without letting someone know to expect to hear from you at a designated time.
Have the necessary emergency numbers handy. Look at the kiosks in the trail head parking lots for emergency contact information.
