For road cyclists, organized outdoor events are one of the most enjoyable things to do. This is a chance for you to experience the fun of a long distance ride with a large group of people without having to be on the road.
HOW DO I DETERMINE MY MILEAGE GOAL?
A great place to start is to look at some of your longest rides and calculate your average speed between them. Once you have an estimated pace for your long distance rides, pick a time duration that is challenging, but achievable!
DO I NEED TO REGISTER?
Yes. We utilize heavily customized automations to provide feedback and support, as well as a centralized place for mileage tracking and submission. You can start begin you registration here.
IS THERE NON-APP REGISTRATION?
The app has been designed to provide you the best experience during the event by providing easy access to everything you may need. As such, there is no option to participate without using the SUMMIIT mobile app.
WHAT IS THE SUMMIIT APP?
The app is our custom-developed system. It is set up to handle a wide number of things, from registration and team assignment, to logging your rides during the event, training, challenges and much more. The app is home base for everything you need prior to and during the event.
WHAT IS THE LIVE DASHBOARD
The Live Dashboard is streamed during the event on Facebook Live and YouTube, showcasing real-time statistics for all riders and teams in the event. Here, you can find the total number of miles logged, how many classes have been taken, the number of people riding at any given time, the current and next class, and much more!
WHEN DOES IT START?
The event is Saturday and Sunday in your local time zone. Due to the large number of riders all across the globe, there are riders logging miles all 48 hours of the event, so the start time is based on your location.
WHEN DO I STOP?
When you've met your goal, or when you need to. Be safe, listen to your body and don't injure yourself.
WHERE CAN I FIND RIDERS WHO ARE PARTICIPATING?
The best way to find other riders is to ride with a team. Be sure to check out the team area in the SUMMIIT app. Also, if you are riding on a Peloton, add the #PeloFondo tag to find riders on the leaderboard.
HOW DO I LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT I'M CRUSHING THIS FONDO?
Add the #PeloFondo tag to your profile on Peloton so we can high five you! Also, if you are riding on a team, be sure to put your team name in your location profile.
SHOULD I FOLLOW INSTRUCTOR CALLOUTS?
We suggest against it, but this is your ride so listen to your body and do what works for you! Pushing harder will make it more difficult to achieve longer distances, but not impossible.
HOW DO I SEE MY TOTAL MILES?
The SUMMIIT app keeps an accurate total of your progress throughout the event. As you sync each ride, you will see your total miles completed, percent to goal, estimated time to completion and more.
DO I HAVE TO FOLLOW THE SCHEDULE?
Absolutely not! The schedule is there to help everyone know when and where the majority of riders will be so you can max out on the high fives. This is your ride, and you can follow the schedule or choose the classes that are best for you.
what data sources are available for syncing?
Currently, we support syncing data directly from Peloton, as well as manual entry of efforts from other systems. Additional integrations are currently in process.
CAN I RIDE BOTH EVENT DAYS?
You bet! All mileage over the weekend counts toward your PeloFondo Goal, so whether you get it all done in one day or split it between the two you can tally those results for submission!
CAN I CHANGE MY GOAL?
Yes! Your goal can be fully adjusted at any point in the app. Simply tap on the "Manage Your Registration button in the app to adjust your mileage, or unregister from the event.
WHAT SHOULD I TRACK?
Riders should track both distance and total ride time. Ride time should be calculated as moving time only, and should not include any breaks. If you are using the Peloton Sync feature, the app will help track this for you. Just tap on the "Sync Latest Ride" button to pull that data.
