We love it when people encourage each other to get out on a bike! 🚲 💚

If somebody encouraged you to join a Love to Ride Challenge, you can add them as your encourager. They'll be awarded the Encourager badge and, during some kinds of Challenges, this will earn them points.

If you encouraged somebody to sign up for a Love to Ride Challenge, great job! 🙌 Send them this article to make sure they get you listed on their profile correctly.

There are two ways to add an encourager, and they're both very simple:

1) After logging your first ride during a Challenge

2) Manually adding an encourager

A couple of things to note:

🥇 You can only select one encourager per Challenge (not one for every ride).

⌛️ If your points don't come across straight away, please give it 24 hours before contacting us. When the site is very busy, there can be a slight delay.

1) After logging your first ride during a Challenge

When you log your first ride during a Challenge manually on the website, you'll see this message 👇


Simply enter the name of the person who encouraged you, select them from the list of search results, and the system will assign you as their encourager. 🎉

Watch the demo below 👇

2) Manually adding an encourager

If you normally sync your rides from another app (like Strava), or you didn't choose an encourager when you logged your first ride, you can go to your profile page to say who encouraged you.

Note: This can only be done during a Challenge.


Simply go to your profile and click on 'Add Encourager' underneath your profile picture. Type the name of the person who encouraged you, choose them from the list, et voila!
