Australian bike site CyclingTips is challenging the rest of the world to ride fifteen hours next week and help your country rack up the most miles, all logged via Strava. Here’s the official blurb: “From Monday, February 25th to Sunday, March 3rd, CyclingTips and Strava are challenging you to lay down a 15 hour week (or more) on the bike. For cyclists in Australia, this is your chance to spice up the February lull. For the rest of the world, this is your chance to get some base miles in before your season begins.” More info here, and get the Strava link here.
