Ride le Tour, right here in So Ill, with your friends from the Surgeon!
We are using the tried and true BS metric conversion system, move the decimal over one and call it miles, right? Yep! So for example, the stage from Granville - Angers, 222km, we will ride at least 22.2 miles at a fun B group pace.
Monday-Friday, the rides roll at 6PM, Saturdays the ride rolls 8AM(B Pace) and 10AM(C Pace) and Sundays the ride will roll at 5PM.
Now for the FUN part, you can WIN cool stuff by riding in Tour de Surgeon. We are putting in "pro like" rides so we should have "pro like" rewards! To keep track of our herculean efforts we will sign in just like the pros. For each day you sign in and ride with us at the shop you get 3 points. We will tally up the points at the end of the month and the winners will win BIG.
Can't make the shop ride? That's ok, do the ride out your own back door or you can even do it virtually. That's right, NEW for this year you can participate from anywhere in the world, so no more excuses just because you are out of town or you live in Japan! Do at least the same mileage for that day grab a screenshot of your ride from Strava/Garmin/Zwift/Your Bike Computer or any other ride tracking site and check in on the Bike Surgeon Facebook page with that photo and the hashtag #tourdesurgeon for 1 point.
But wait there's more, include a good photo of you and/or your bike on your ride in a post to Bike Surgeon's Facebook page and get an additional point for that day. Each and every photo posted up with the hashtag #tourdesurgeon will be up for nomination as the most epic Tour de Surgeon photo of this year's event, get that nod and you earn a rocking 15 point bonus.
The top three point's earners each week (Sun-Sat) get in on some cool prizes, $20, $10 and $5 in shop credit respectively. Overall the top three point holders at the end of the Tour WIN a limited release Tour de Surgéon jersey FREE. The rest of the top 10 can grab one of these jerseys at 50% off and anyone with at least 10 points can grab a jersey at 25% off. These jerseys will be available to Tour de Surgéon riders exclusively for the first three weeks of August.
