Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register?

Registration is easy and is powered through the Givhero app:

  • TAP HERE FROM YOUR SMART PHONE to download the Givhero app. You can also click the link on your desktop and follow prompts to send link to your phone. Sign up using your email address and accept the challenge.
  • After you accept the challenge, you can set your own goal (we suggest 100 miles) and connect Givhero to the fitness tracker of your choice (only one can be connected at a time).

What does it cost to register?

Registration is free. A self-donation of any amount is encouraged, but not mandatory.

Do I have to ride 100 miles?

We suggest either a 100 mile, 50 mile or 25 mile goal; however, the goal that you set can be any mileage over 10 miles.

Note: although you can keep tracking your miles after you hit you goal, you can only set your goal one time. So, if you set your goal at 50-miles, and you pass 50-miles, you will not be able to update your goal. However, in this challenge, Givhero will still track your mileage and you can continue to fundraise after hitting you goal.

Why create a team? What are the benefits?

There are many benefits to creating a team: camaraderie, competition, sharing the experience with a friend.

How much can I earn per mile?

For every mile you ride (indoor or out), we will donate to a local non-profit. Every mile = 54 cents, representing the 1 in 54 children diagnosed with autism.  The total any rider can earn for their local team is $54 (or 100 miles). We are committed to contributing up to $10,000

Will every mile count, even if I don't hit OR exceed my goal?

Givhero will track every mile that you ride during our 3-week challenge. However, the total any rider can earn for their local team is $54 (or 100 miles).

In order for your miles to count, you must be a part of “The Add Impact Challenge” in Givhero, not just on the Givhero App. 

How are partial miles calculated?

Givhero rounds down for any partial milage achieved, but will save the “part of the mile” for you next ride. For example, if you ride 5.6 miles in Day 1, you will be credited with 5 miles (5 x $0.54 = $2.7). If you ride 5.4 miles next day, you will be credited with the  5.4 miles from Day 2 and the 0.6 miles from Day 1 for a total of 6 miles (6 x $0.54 = 3.24).

What are the fundraising incentives?

Bike to the Beach has has an incentive point system that rewards you for fundraising:

  • Get a sweatband when you donate to yourself
  • Raise $75 to earn a “Add Impact Challenge” t-shirt.
  • Raise $150 to earn a FREE Bike to the Beach Registration for 2020 or 2021.

You will receive your fundraising incentives after the conclusion of the challenge. Note: shipping is NOT included.

How do donations and pledges work?

Donations will be automatically processed when you achieve your individually set goal and/or at the end of the campaign.

  •  If you do not hit your goal, we will manually process your committed donations.
  •  If you receive donations after reaching your goal, we will process those donations at the end of the challenge.

Note: Donations based on mileage may not show up in real-time, including the $0.54 per mile donation.

How does the leaderboard work?

Bike to the Beach will regularly post download data about mileage completed and donations committed in the message area of your Givhero app.

The leaderboard can only show amount of “challenges/goals” completed. It cannot compare miles completed or donations committed. In the user view of the app, individuals will be able to see the mileage and committed donations or other people in the “challenge”, but not in an ordered “leaderboard”.
