Ride with road.cc on RGT Cycling this week

We've done a race and there's still a week long challenge for you to get involved with, and there are also prizes to be won!...

Been enjoying the lovely UK spring weather? Well after all that sunshine some of us have seen snow today, so hope you haven't put the turbo trainer in the loft just yet! This week we've had a couple of events going on with RGT Cycling that you can get involved with, and you can sign up and ride them on the app for free! On top of that, there is office schwag to be won for taking part!

Plenty of virtual riding has took place already, with hundreds of you completing the Sa Calobra climb, and on Tuesday riders battled it out on the Race to the Cap. Our winner was Manuel Palmar in a super speedy time of 38:35, nice work Manuel! You can find the full results here

If you haven't already signed up for RGT Cycling, here's what's happening for the rest of the week...  

RGT Sa Calobra

All this week: Sa Calobra Challenge

This week, road.cc is challenging you to take on the Sa Calobra, probably the most famous climb on the island of Mallorca, using RGT Cycling’s Magic Roads function that allows you to make a route on the platform with just a GPX file. Gaining a devilish 666m over its 10km length, it's a stern test for any rider, and one that the pros can complete in well under half an hour. How will you get on? Brad will be riding this climb in real life too, and we'll see how the virtual times posted over the week compare with his real-life effort. Watch out for a video about that challenge too.

As with the race, we'll select one rider at random that completes the challenge and that rider will receive a goody bag of cycling schwag from the road.cc offices. Good luck!

How to get on RGT Cycling

To get set up with RGT Cycling simply head over to the RGT Cycling website and download the app; it’s available for PC, Mac, iOs, Android and Apple TV. Once you’ve set up a free account you’ll have access to a limited number of features in the app, but those include joining races and group rides, so you’re good to go if you want to get involved with our challenges this week. Premium costs £6.99 a month and for that you get lots more content on the app, including extra training and riding options and the ability to make your own races and group rides.

See you on the (virtual) roads!
