You get 10 points for each destination + 1 point per 10 (full) miles, 2 bonus points if the ride is with another club member and 20 bonus points if you complete all 20 destinations.
There is no minimum or maximum distance and you can use any start or finish point.
Visit every destination listed, on road, gravel or mountain bike; no E-bikes though.
At least 10 of your rides should be on weekends (to make it fairer for those who can only ride weekends).
Record your ride within 2 days on Strava as DCV + destination letter (see the list below). Once recorded that’s it, you can’t do that destination again, so make the mileage count!
Complete as many destinations per ride as you like but mileage points may suffer as a result.
Prizes and a trophy will be awarded for most points and best photo.
Take photos within 50 m of the destination and post them on the WhatsApp DCV Club Rides group.
