..SO WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Glad you asked. Your submission has been entered, and the next step is for us to approve your ride. There is no fancy computer algorithms at play – just two people behind a computer in their spare time, so hang tight as we get back to you as soon as we can. In most cases your ride will be approved within 48 hours (usually sooner). If it gets to more than a few days then please do drop us a line to check (please be friendly!).
WHAT ABOUT THE GREY STRIPE?
Once your ride has been approved you’ll not only be in the Everesting Hall of Fame, but you will have earned yourself a spot in the Hells 500 crew, signified by the ‘grey stripe‘.
The grey stripe signifies Hells 500 riders who have lent their blood, sweat, and tears in completing an epic. When other riders see the grey stripe out on the road they know they are looking at one hard bastard.
By wrapping yourself in the grey stripe you’re supporting the crew that supports others – from getting new riders into the hills, supporting up and coming riders, to getting behind local cycling initiatives, and helping out those in need. You are now part of that community!
The grey stripe is ONLY ever available to those who have completed an epic. It does come with it’s own responsibilities as well – but more about that and info on how to order on the site.
Congrats again, and fingers crossed for your submission. You’ll hear from us via email in regards to your attempt. Rest up, and you’ll be hearing from us soon!
