The Rules of RPI Remote

  1. Your route must meet the minimum requirements to be official, but you can go more. You MUST hit at least 62 miles and 4,000 feet of climbing on 50% gravel surface for the leaderboard results. This may mean you'll have to go a longer distance to hit the elevation. Click here for our tips on planning your Remote route.

  2. Your ride must be completed on Sunday, September 3, rain or shine. 

  3. Your ride must be recorded on Strava so we can verify the ride. Feel free to join the Join the Rusch! Strava club and the official RPI Challenge!

  4. Your ride and route must be submitted here after the challenge for leaderboard consideration, and we encourage you to submit immediately after you ride. Even if you're just out for a great day of riding and not aiming for a podium spot, please submit your results so we can keep track of the total number of miles and elevation we rode together around the globe!  

  5. Route must be 50% or more gravel or dirt. This is an honor system, but we will review winning routes to ensure that 50% gravel or dirt is met.

  6. Gravel, road, and mountain bikes are allowed.

  7. You must pedal with your own power; no e-bikes for final official racing in leaderboard scoring.

  8. Adhere to the Gravel SHARK rules, as well as your local cycling rules and regulations.
