Rules of the Strava Segment of the Month (SOTM)

A Strava segment/segments is chosen at the beginning of the month and could be either a hill section, a sprint, a flat TT style section, or if deemed safe enough, a downhill section.

You can attempt the segment as many times as you like within the month.

All rider times are taken from the Canterbury Bicycle Club Strava group so please ensure you have joined this.

At the end of the month, points will be awarded for the top 15 places, with 15 points for 1st place, 14 points for 2nd, 13 points for 3rd etc.

A league will develop and eventually, if we get enough interest there will be a split into division 1 and 2 and a ladies league. The competition will run April through October.

To take part in segment of the month you will need to be a paid up CBC member and able to run Strava from a device (mobile, garmin etc). Your attempts must be uploaded to Strava website and you must have joined the Canterbury Bicycle Club Strava group – If it’s not on Strava it didn’t happen!

ALL ATTEMPTS MUST BE UPLOADED TO STRAVA BY 6PM, on last day of the month.

Best of luck!
