Green Bean Endurance Challenge is a group for aspiring or hobby endurance riders with 1000 or less combined recorded LD & endurance riding miles. We offer awards and prize drawings to our members, educational support, and social networking. We believe there is more than just "one way" to learn about and enjoy endurance riding and that the priority is that you ride safe, and have fun while you do it.
Registration is now open for 2017 Green Bean Endurance Competition. There are a few changes this year. The first BIG change is Jacke has decided to take a step back from directing the program in order to focus on her family needs. She is, and always will be, the heart and soul of this program and we can't thank her enough. Your current directors are Deb Moe and Ricky Stone. Ricky joined GBE 2016 as a team rider and when the word got out that we might not be able to get 2017 going, he stepped in and is happy help. Thank you Ricky!!
Changes to the competition for 2017
1) TEAM riders are now eligible to get bonus points! Each rider on a team can achieve 15 points for getting a mentor, up to 20 points for volunteering, up to 30 points for attending endurance clinics, and up to 30 points for completing an intro or novice ride.. A full day of volunteering is 10 points.
2) We are now calling the "individual" program "One Horse: One Rider". It's basically the same as least year except we are allowing one swap out to a different horse without affecting accumulated points.
3) We will be enforcing the new rule that requires all rides and bonus points to be submitted within 15 days of the event. So please remember to submit your forms right away.
4) New this year is an Endomondo riding challenge only open to registered team and 1h:1r participantes. This is where you can record all of your training miles for the entire season. The dates for this match our competition dates of Dec 1 to Nov. 30.
5) Each rider must submit their own registration form for liability reasons.
6) Fees will be $15/rider this year. Between paypal fees, shipping costs, and the desire to give out a few more awards, we felt the need to increase our fee.
