Because our sport is non-competitive, RUSA
does not have special trophies for those who rode the most kilometers or
who climbed the most hills. Nor do we have categories for age, gender, type
of machine, etc. Our awards are earned simply by finishing events within
their time limits.
Participation and determination are the two essential things
