Record your rides

Record your rides and log your miles throughout the month for every ride you complete for the challenge. You can log your miles in the following ways:

The Great Cycle Challenge USA app

The Great Cycle Challenge USA app allows you to easily record your miles and will automatically add each ride straight onto your rider profile page (including the miles ridden, date and journey).

The app is available on iPhone and Android.

Connect to Strava or MapMyRide

If you already use Strava or MapMyFitness (which includes MapMyRide and MapMyRun) then you can simply connect your account to take part in the challenge.

  • Strava: To sync your Strava profile, visit the Ride Activity page of your Great Cycle Challenge USA dashboard and press the orange 'Strava Connect' button. 
  • MapMyFitness/Ride/Run: MapMyFitness/Ride/Run integration is also available and can be located on the Ride Activity page of your dashboard.

Your own GPS device

Already use a GPS enabled device like a Garmin to track your rides? No problem. You can upload your ride file to your Great Cycle Challenge USA account and have your rides (and miles) added to your rider profile page.

If you don't want to upload a file, then you can easily add your miles manually.


If you are using a standard odometer or taking part in the Spin Bike Challenge, you can add your miles manually into your Great Cycle Challenge USA dashboard.
