At the start of the year, I wrote about running for rewards with Running Heroes. Running Heroes is a place where you can log your runs, earn points, that are then redeemed for rewards! Well for all you cyclists and triathletes, there is now Cycling Heroes where you can log your rides, earn points and redeem rewards too! You can now cycle for rewards through Cycling Heroes and it’s all for FREE!
How does it work?

- Firstly, all you need to do is register with Cycling Heroes (see below to sign up with 100 bonus points).
- Next, just connect and sync your account with a complimentary cycling app. Cycling Heroes works with Suunto, Polar, TomTom, Strava, Runtastic, MapMyRide, Polar and Garmin.
- All you need to do now is cycle for rewards!
Finally, after you have accumulated enough points you are ready to redeem your rewards!
How are points calculated?
Cycling Heroes has its own calculation method taking into account gender, distance, time, pace and elevation of your cycle. Unfortunately, rides on home trainers are not counted as their system is based exclusively on the GPS data from your activities. Points are awarded to you automatically after each cycle.
Once you have your points, you can look to redeem rewards on offer.

What rewards are on offer?
There is a wide range of rewards available. Some of these are similar to those on Running Heroes such as discounts with Steigen, Quad Lock, Skin Strong, BSX Insight and Science in Sports.
In addition to these rewards, those unique to Cycling Heroes currently include discounts with Reid Cycles, Intrepid Travel and 2 free rides at Pelotone. Here are all the current rewards on offer.
Once you have accumulated enough points, simply click on the “Redeem” button to get your reward!
Similar to Running Heroes, there are also some cycling challenges you can get involved in where you can win prizes.
Already signed up to Running Heroes? No need to register again!
You do not need to register again for Cycling Heroes if you are already registered with Running Heroes. Just use the same username and login and you can use points from both your running and cycling to redeem rewards from both.
