It's important to log your kilometres for every ride you complete throughout the month of August. You can log your kilometres in the following ways:

The Great Cycle Challenge Canada app

The Great Cycle Challenge Canada app allows you to easily record your kilometres and will automatically add each ride straight onto your rider profile page (including the kilometres ridden, date and journey).

The app is available on iPhone and Android.

Connect to Strava or MapMyRide

If you already use Strava or MapMyFitness (which includes MapMyRide and MapMyRun) then you can simply connect your account to take part in the challenge.

  • Strava: To sync your Strava profile, visit the Ride Activity page of your Great Cycle Challenge Canada dashboard and press the orange 'Strava Connect' button. 
  • MapMyFitness/Ride/Run: MapMyFitness/Ride/Run integration is also available and can be located on the Ride Activity page of your dashboard.

Your own GPS device

Already use a GPS enabled device like a Garmin to track your rides? No problem. You can upload your ride file to your Great Cycle Challenge Canada account and have your rides (and kilometres) added to your rider profile page.

If you don't want to upload a file, then you can easily add your kilometres manually.


If you are using a standard odometer or taking part in the Spin Bike Challenge, you can add your kilometres manually into your Great Cycle Challenge Canada dashboard.
