    Default Rapha Black Friday Ride

    I'm doing it. If only because I need something to run interference on all the other things on the horizon. And I need to ride. This does both. Plus it is for World Bicycle Relief, so I'll probably throw a few shekels into the pot as well.

    At the risk of sounding un-evolved ... I would take part in many more challenges like this if there was an option to the electronic requirement (Strava et al). I took the computer off my bike years ago and I like it that way.

    Well, there sorta is. You can ride and then make a donation. World Bicycle Relief is a good org. Or you can just ride!

    Yes, it's true, and I haven't investigated Strava at all. I can just ride and donate.

    Cool.
    I was actually just mapping out the presumed days/dates for the Festive 500 this year.
    One of the first years in a while that I'll probably be taking the entirety of the the holiday week off (because I haven't used any PTO this year), and we won't be traveling (because COVID.)
    my name is Matt

    72 Jimmy, I salute your instrument-free riding. You can sign up for a free Strava account and just enter the mileage manually.

    Maybe drop an email to Strava to ask if it will still count, as I know that manual entries don’t count for KOMs and monthly challenges for miles and vertical. Let’s hope they count for charity.

    World Bicycle Relief is a great org. Count me in.
