FAQ
Q. Why do the letters TBC appear beside my team in the leaderboard?
A. The letters TBC appear beside teams where less than 3 people have signed up to the team or where there is no 'new cyclist'. If you are having difficulties with your account please email cyclechallenge@smartertravelworkplaces.ie
Q. We don't have a new cyclist on our team, can we still take part?
A. To qualify for prizes, you must have one person who has not cycled in the past six months on your team. If you can’t find a new cyclist, please contact your company coordinator, as they may be able to match you up with someone. If you don’t know who your company coordinator is, please contact cyclechallenge@smartertravelworkplaces.ie
Q. Where can I view the 1st leaderboard?
A. The top teams on the first leaderboard can be seen below. You can see the full leaderboard if you click on the purple button or go to the leaderboard page.
