There needs to be an update of various levels for climbing (as has previously been done with distance challenges) in the cycling monthly challenges as 7,500m can be done without any real effort depending on your location.
Hi @AdamBowman We appreciate your participation in the ideas board. Do you mind elaborating what you believe the different climbing cycling challenge tiers should be? We kindly ask that you review our Ideas guidelines, particularly the “What makes a good idea” section, to ensure that your ideas are clear, concise, and can reach as many others as possible. Thanks.
But then in other locations, 7500m might be extremely difficult to get. What really needs to happen, in my opinion, is personalized monthly challenges like Apple Watch (and likely many other fitness platforms) already offers.
If you’re in the habit of climbing 10000m every month, a 7500m-climb challenge is no challenge at all, but 11000m would be. For someone who climbs 100m a month, 7500m looks insurmountable and not even worth considering.
Hey @AdamBowman we haven’t heard back from you and will be archiving this idea unless you update us within a week. I'd also like to point out that Subscribers have the option to create elevation goals (among other types) for more personalized challenges.
Like you have 3 tiers for distance (200,600,1250km), something like 5,000m, 10000m and 20,000m would be my suggestion. Or you could reward them by setting Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum names for them all, in a similar fashion to Sony PlayStation challenges. Bronze = 2,000m, Silver = 5,000m, Gold = 10,000m, Platinum = 20,000m.
A bronze, silver, gold and platinum level would also help shake up the other monthly challenges. Gran Fondo for example. 4 levels. 50km, 100km, 150km, 200km.
Monthly distance: 200, 600, 1200, 2000km.
Your yearly round up would then tell you how many Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum challenges you achieved that year.
Thanks for the additional information, your idea to implement additional cycling climbing challenge tiers is now open to voting.
