The central ideal behind Peaks to Plains is the Summer Moto Mileage Challenge. Simply put, we love to ride, let's see who can clock the most miles in the season! Spanning from May 12 to September 22, let your tires roll and your odometer tell the story.
We've taken initial registration forms for the challenge, but if you missed our Clock-In party, don't worry. We're still accepting entries, so follow these steps to get on the board:
Take a photo of your odometer with a time stamped gas receipt
Post on your Instagram feed, tag @PeaksToPlains, and include the tag #PeakstoPlains2017
We'll put you on the challenge!
What about our friends who've customized their machines past the point of having an odometer? Our Bonus Challenges are there for you! Earn miles by completing different tests and objectives. Depending on the difficulty, we'll award miles to your score. From proof of National Park visits, to nights spent outside camping, you'll be able to stand a chance against that guy who's probably going to ride to Alaska and back. Maybe.
The following (and growing, so check back often) list of challenges can be used to supplement your mileage through the summer, and in the case of the No Odometer Class, will constitute the entire challenge. You MUST follow the following steps to get credit for your completions:
Take a photo of the proof, with your bike in frame
