Join the Dialed Health Strava Club and title your ride using: Dialed Health Vert Challenge in the month of October.  Send the link to your ride via email to derek@dialedhealth.com with the subject "Dialed Health Vert Challenge".

To be clear, THIS IS NOT ABOUT WHO CLIMBS THE MOST.  We'll choose a winner based on the ride that inspires us the most.

In your Strava Ride Description, write a short paragraph or two describing the ride.  Example of things to talk about: 

  • What was your previous PR?
  • Did you ever doubt that you could finish?
  • What did you learn about yourself or your ride performance from the ride?

Include at least 1 photo from the ride(ideally a "selfie" as your first photo and then pictures of the terrain, views, food consumed, etc.)
