Yes, WCCG Distance Challenge is back 🙂
Do commit a distance and ride it out from 15th Sept to 15th Oct. We ride to commemorate the World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th of Sept and World Mental Health Day on 10th of Oct
Regular cycling isn’t just good for your physical health: it also benefits your mental wellbeing. Riding a bike is relaxing. If you’re stressed at work, you can often burn it off by cycling home. And if you’re dealing with a more serious problem, cycling can help you regain some balance in your life. Let's encourage everyone to start their cycling journey !!
Categories are 300km or 500km or 1000+km, choose any one as you like. Complete the distance from 15th Sept to 15th Oct, 2021 and track it on strava (should be linked to chennaicyclists website) and add the last hex badge on your trophy case for this season.
