                                Derek and Brigetta Ewing, Outgoing Challenge Organizers


Here are the results of the 2017 Cycling Challenge. We had a great turnout again in terms of overall participation. A total of 70 riders qualified for the Wall of Fame, and 62 received a Gold, a Silver, or a Bronze Award. Three rode every mile achieving the ultimate challenge with 543 miles--Rick Haberkorn, Jack Hurley, and Bill Schultz.

We will continue the series in 2018. Larry and Vanessa Willmore have taken over as organizers. Thank you, Larry and Vanessa!

The Cycling Challenge is a series of five events throughout the riding season, designed to aid in your cycling fitness and accomplish the goal of completing your chosen mileage option on the Classic Capital City Century Ride in September. Each daily Challenge consists of a century (100 miles) ride with shorter options of approximately 25 and 50 miles. The first four challenges are totally self-supported.

The 5th & final Challenge event is the Classic CCC Ride on September 9th. All riders who complete the series minimum of 3 rides are placed on the Wall of Fame. Riders may receive a Gold, a Silver or a Bronze Award based on the number of points they submit. Mileage is recorded and a point awarded for each mile.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! This season’s Cycling Challenge begins on April 29, 2018.
