September Touring Challenge Results

Written by Steve Pequinot

Congratulations to all 32 riders who participated in the Three Rivers Velo Sport September Touring Challenge. September was a near-perfect month for such an event, not too hot, not too cold and not much rain during the day. Many of the challenge riders took advantage of the Labor Day Club Century Tour to kick-start the challenge month.
 
Each day the participants uploaded their daily rides to Strava and could instantly see how they were doing on the challenge page provided by Strava. The numbers became staggering.  By the end of September 32 riders logged 26,021 kilometers. The top female rider for the month was Deborah Watts with 1,744 kilometers and the top male rider was Rob Hentz with 2,428 kilometers.
