    Default Question: What does "Manual entries will also not be accepted." mean?

    I don't do Fitbit or anything like that. Does that mean. I won't be able to record the miles I ride?

    Tracking your rides with Strava is a requirement for the competition. If you are unable or unwilling to do that, you are more than welcome to come ride with us at events and whatnot but will not be able to take part in the official competition.

    You don't need a Fitbit. There is a Strava app that you can use on any smartphone. But you will need a way of recording your miles--either a special purpose device like a Garmin, or a smartphone with Strava installed.

    Will players not be allowed to manually enter rides through the Strava website this year? (I know this has been a point of contention in the past.)

    No, they will not. Allowing them to do so was making hozn's job tougher. The start and end times of manually entered rides is often the same, so he had to compensate in things like average speeds, coldest ride, etc. It finally got banned last year.

    Yeah, it just isn't worth the hassle. The majority of the scoring (alternate leaderboards) are based on metrics that would be missing from manual-entry rides.
