Can You ... GO ... All ... The ... MAY?
EVERY DAY IN MAY is back in all its glory! Complete the Challenge by riding your ElliptiGO each day during the month of May and you'll earn a ton of GOTM points. Think you've got what it takes?

How far do I have to ride each day?
There are three different challenge levels to choose from: 5 miles, 10 miles and 20 miles per day. You can move down a level at any time, so if you start at 10 miles per day and conclude that it's too much after a week, you can start doing 5 miles per day and complete the Challenge at that level. Also, you can miss up to three days during the month, as well as complete up to three rides as an alternative form of aerobic training, so there's no need to fret about a business trip or a few rainy days ending your hot streak.

Alternative training will be based on time. You can reach the appropriate level/mileage equivalent as per the following:

5mi challenge level = 30min of continuous aerobic training
10mi challenge level = 60min of continuous aerobic training
20mi challenge level = 120min of continuous aerobic training


Pre-approved forms of alternative training include: Running/Jogging, Indoor Elliptical, Aqua-Jogging, Swimming, Cycling and XC Skiing. If you would like permission to substitute a different form of aerobic training, please email us at challenge@elliptigo.com.

How many points can I earn?
A lot. If you successfully complete the 5-mile Challenge, you'll earn 150 points. Completing the 10-mile Challenge will get you 350 points, and completing the 20-mile Challenge will earn you 750 points. That's equivalent to doing 6 century rides! Check out the Get On The Map page to see what other rewards you can earn with your points.

How do I join the Challenge?
You must register for the Challenge no later than April 30th. All you need to do is complete the registration form on this page AND join the ElliptiGO Club on Strava so you can upload your rides.

How do I successfully complete the Challenge?
To earn your GOTM points, you'll need to:

1. Ride your ElliptiGO at least the prescribed distance (5, 10 or 20 miles) on no fewer than 28 days in May. If you skip a day, you'll have to make up the difference so that you end up averaging at least the prescribed distance for all 31 days. You DO NOT need to make up mileage for alternative training days, given you train for the specified amount of time required by your desired level of the challenge.

2. Upload your rides each week on Sunday by midnight Pacific Time.

3. If you miss a day or use one of your alternative training sessions, email us at challenge@elliptigo.com so we can update the Challenge rider board on this page.

Challenge Guidelines
1. Challenge participants must register by April 30 by doing BOTH of the following:
        • Completing the registration form on the Every Day in May webpage
        • Joining the ElliptiGO Club on Strava

2. All but three (3) rides must be done outside on an ElliptiGO. You can also do up to three (3) rides
    as an alternative form of aerobic training. Alternative training will be based on time to get to the
    appropriate level/mileage equivalent as per the following:
        • 5mi challenge level = 30min of continuous aerobic training
        • 10mi challenge level = 60min of continuous aerobic training
        • 20mi challenge level = 120min of continuous aerobic training

    If you choose to use an alternative training day, you must upload the ride manually to Strava
    and email us at challenge@elliptigo.com. No cheating. You do not have to make up indoor
    mileage, but you do have to make up the mileage for days you miss completely so that
    your average for the 31 days is at least the level of riding you have chosen for each day of
    the month.

    Pre-approved forms of alternative training include: Running/Jogging, Indoor Elliptical,
    Aqua-Jogging, Swimming, Cycling and XC Skiing
. If you would like permission to substitute
    a different form of aerobic training, please email us at challenge@elliptigo.com.

3. Riders are allowed up to three non-riding days called "NO-GOs". Riders who fail to ride on
    four or more days will be removed from the challenge and unable to earn GOTM points.
    In the event a rider has one or more NO-GO days, the rider must "make up" the difference
    so that the rider ends up averaging at least the prescribed distance for all 31 days. So, all
    5-mile riders must ride at least 5 miles on no fewer than 28 days during the month and
    ride at least 155 miles in total for the month.

4. You can upload rides at any time during the week, but all rides for a given week must be
    uploaded to the ElliptiGO Strava Club no later than midnight Pacific Time each Sunday. If you     miss a day or use one of your alternative riding sessions, you must email us at
    challenge@elliptigo.com so we can update the riderboard with the latest standings.
    Late submissions will be allowed, but will cost one NO-GO per day the entry is late.

5. To be clear, participants will not receive a point per mile that they actually ride, instead,
    they will be awarded a fixed number of points for completing the challenge at a given level
    according to the following:
        • 150 points for successfully completing the 5-mile level
        • 350 points for successfully completing the 10-mile level
        • 750 points for successfully completing the 20-mile level

6. What if I have to travel, get sick, there's dangerous weather, etc.?
    That's why we allow three alternative workouts and three "NO-GOs", giving you 20% flexibility
    throughout the 31-day challenge. If extenuating circumstances prohibit you from riding
    outdoors for more than 3 days during the month, then you can apply for additional alternative
    training days, which may be awarded on a case by case basis.
