Here’s How Logging Hours on Your Bike Could Earn You Some New Gear

Fitness tracker Strava and online retailer Competitive Cyclist come together to incentivize riding

Cyclists ride because they love being on a bike—they love the feeling, the community and the power that they have on two wheels and now they’ll have something else to love about riding. Fitness tracker Strava and online retailer Competitive Cyclist have joined forces to reward cyclists with store credit, just for riding their bikes.

The concept is pretty simple, riders sync the Strava and Competitive Cyclist apps and then through tracking their rides on Strava, they earn credits on Competitive Cyclist. Riders earn one credit (which is equal to $1) every hour they spend riding, which is measured in time spent moving. The credits are then automatically added to the Competitive Cyclist account, within 24 hours and all of your credits are used on your next order.

There are a few stipulations, though. Riders can earn up to 40 credits ($40) each month, but can’t exceed that number. The credits also expire on the last day of the next month, so if you earned 40 credits in May, those credits would expire on June 30 if unused.
