February Rider Challenge 2020

The February Rider Challenge is back for the fourth year! We’ve got some great prizes lined up so this is a month where you’ll want to be taking as many trips with Mobi by Shaw Go as possible!

What is the February Rider Challenge?

The February Rider Challenge is a month long competition to see who can take the most trips with Mobi by Shaw Go and the top three win a prize. This year, we are introducing two extra awards, one for the individual with the highest elevation gain - The “Mountain Climber” and one for the person who visits the most number of different stations - The “City Explorer.” 

What trips qualify?

You can take as many trips per day as you want, but there are a couple rules to make sure the competition is fair and fun. For a trip to qualify, the following requirements must be met:

  • A ride must be 2+ minutes long. Rides lasting 1 minute 59 seconds or less will not be counted. ​
  • A ride must be 50+ metres in distance. Rides covering 49 metres and less will not be counted. ​
  • At least 5 minutes must pass between consecutive rides. ​
  • Contest begins at 00:00 PST on Saturday, February 1, 2020 and ends at 23:59 PST on Saturday, February 29, 2020.

We will keep track of the number of trips you take and announce the top trip counts weekly on social media. To keep track of your trips, visit our Mobi by Shaw Go app or log into our website. The winners will be announced on March 1, 2020.
