For avid cyclists looking for the next big challenge, it doesn’t get much bigger than this. The 2011 KOM Challenge encourages and tests the country’s growing cycling community by providing a solid tracking system to support competition, while making the social fitness experience fun and rewarding. Looking for additional motivation? The 500,000 foot goal is the equivalent of cycling up Mt. Everest sixteen times!
