The 30-Day Ride Challenge is now done and dusted! With poached legs, gripped forearms and aching backs we’d like to congratulate everyone who participated in this month-long endeavor-in-the-saddle. Thousands of people across the world rode their bikes every day from July 1 to July 30, all while encouraging their friends and inspiring strangers.

With that, we bring you the news that we have an official winner for the 30 Day Ride Challenge!
Tim Falvey is now the proud owner of the Return to Earth custom Trek Slash with a Shimano XTR build. Here's what he had to say about it.

When I first heard the news I was so relieved I had finished all 30 days. On day four I went into the park after work, had a good crash and split my elbow open. It was pretty sore for a couple of weeks until another crash opened it back up again. Also, on day 12 I had to drop my brother-in-law at the airport so had to do a ride in Vancouver in the dark to get the badge!— Tim Falvey, 30 Day Challenge Grand Prize winner

Note: All winners are drawn at the Pinkbike office location using a ‘Pick A Winner’ generator that randomly draws from all the eligible entries that completed the daily challenge (for Daily Badge winners) and all 30 days of the challenge (for the Overall 30 Day winner). Each winner is then cross-checked to ensure the days of riding is featured a complete Trailforks trail and there were no disparities.

The overall response to the 30 Day Ride Challenge was nothing short of amazing. Countless photos and videos were posted on a daily basis from participants on trails all over the world, more than we’ve ever seen. The best part was hearing participants’ testimonials; how people were riding more, riding stronger and generally just feeling better on their bikes, despite the time and energy that this challenge took.

And just like that…. 30 days flew by and I rode every day! It was not about riding the longest most epic trails, but reminding me I have the willpower and I could trade my usual after-work naps for laps. —@jelodotch

I’m a busy guy/girl and I don’t necessarily live next to any trails. How do you expect me to carry out this challenge? 


I never expected I would feel so good mentally and physically doing this challenge but the benefits have been unreal! —
