Versus Virtual Ride

After hosting two successful Versus Virtual Runs in the past three months, it is time to step into the virtual cycling space. With over 14,000 participants in the first virtual run and 16,000 participants in our second, we are expecting some 10,000 cyclists to get out on their bikes on 25 July.

All cyclists are welcome to enter the virtual ride and be part of something big on 25 July, with thousands of other cyclists across the globe.

 

We are also very happy to announce our event partners: Giant, Garmin, Bike Hub, and Ciovita.

 

 

 

Please spread the word and have fun on race day!

I'm getting ready to upload .fit file to Strava Manually through a PC, seriously doubt the servers will be back online today.

Entered. Will be pulling 3 kids along for 20km tomorrow.

So if GC is still down, how long will we have to upload the file directly to strava?

Not sure but I'm planning on tracking my ride directly on the Strava app on my phone.

20km+ Zwift ride for me, that goes directly to Strava at least.

ouzo, Jul 24 2020 10:09

always thought this was a Zwift race when I saw it pop up in various places, never looked into it.

I've entered, may just add a few extra km to my commute tomorrow or just go out after work and do a ride, will see how I feel in the morning.

I was feeling knackered on the ride home last night, so the plan was to take the next couple of days off the bike completely, so wont be doing both for sure.

Hopefully Garmin will be up and running by tomorrow

Did you record with a Garmin...?

Super Sywurm, Jul 25 2020 09:38

I did my fair share of 35km.

MphatiPyga, Jul 25 2020 10:32

Already have my ride confirmation from Versus, has to do a manual upload from Garmin. No 3 entries for 60km 😂

ouzo, Jul 25 2020 03:46

decided to not ride.

Its only 20km, but I know me, I won't take it easy, and the way I've been feeling the last 2 days its better to listen to my body.

8350 people registered

3600 odd people have already logged their ride.

DieselnDust, Jul 25 2020 06:19

when is the draw? I'm feeling lucky today

Pure Savage, Jul 25 2020 07:30

Only 4000 odd entrants so far, those are pretty good odds! 

 

I was pretty impressed, was painless and quick and a kiff online vibe and got my certificate quickly. 

 

Well done to Versus again.

I submitted my ride via Bluetooth from my Lezyne GPS to my phone and in less than 1 minute I got my certificate via e-mail.
