Things you should know...

Great Cycle Challenge Canada's mobile app is available for iOS (Apple) and Android (Samsung et al.) smartphones and can be used to track your miles throughout August. The app is compatible with iOS 7 onwards plus Android Version 4 (Jelly Bean) and above.

Here are some things you need to know about the mobile app:

  • Select 'Canada' from the country drop down before trying to sign-in - regardless of whether you are signing in with a username or via Facebook Login.
  • You must log in to the app using the same username and password you created for your ride account (when you registered) or via Facebook Login if you signed-up using Facebook.
  • Make sure you have the GPS on your phone enabled in order to track the distance you ride - the app will notify you if it is not enabled.
  • For the most part you don't require an internet/data connection to use the application - you will, however, need a data connection when you first log in and also when you 'save a ride.'
  • Each ride will be automatically added to your ride profile page.
  • The app is only available for iOS and Android platforms - Windows, Blackberry and other platforms are not supported.
  • Those using an exercise bike or similar to complete the challenge can add their rides using the 'add ride manually' function.
  • While you can record a ride prior to August 1 using the app, we will be removing all rides pre-11:59 pm on July 31.
