How do the challenges work?

  • The tougher the challenge, the higher the number of points. (Please note: the points allocation is by no means perfect). 
     
  • “If it’s not on Strava it didn’t happen” – most challenges require a Strava file and all race challenges require a result on Zwiftpower.com
     
  • Join the Cycling Victoria Let’s Zwift Strava group here
     
  • Follow Cycling Victoria on Strava here
     
  • Complete and submit your registration
     
  • Please read the Event Guide to make sure you submit your challenges correctly
     
  • All challenges must be named as follows to be included in the competition: Full Name (As shown on CA Membership) – CVZwift/Challenge number e.g. Cadel Evans – CV Zwift/34
     
  • All challenges must tag @cyclingvictoria in the comments
     
  • One ride - one challenge – a rider cannot attempt multiple challenges in one ride or in one day
     
  • While you can do a challenge at any time, there may be special challenges announced on our social media pages, so keep an eye out for those!
     
  • You know your challenge has been verified if you get a kudos from Cycling Victoria!
