Grab some elevation towards the “Climb Mt. Everest” challenge with BanditZ’s banded Tronathon event! We’re also highlighting a new endurance group ride, a fast-paced training ride, a group workout, and a classic social ride.
🥇 BanditZ Tronathon (Banded)
✅ Popular Event ✅ Beginner Friendly
For those looking to do some climbing or gain some elevation for the Everest challenge, Banditz is hosting its weekly Tronathon event on Sunday. The ride is banded, meaning the group will stick together no matter how hard riders are pushing. This is a great way for newer/slower riders to participate in a group ride.
The ride takes place on the Road to Sky course and finishes at the top, so riders can descend as quickly as they’d like!
