Unfortunately, no. Once you've registered with your email address, you can only be on one team.
Which rides will count towards my total?
Any kilometres ridden throughout the challenge!
How can I log my rides/kms?
All the different rides you've completed will be added to your profile either through Strava, Fitbit, Garmin, MapMyFitness or manually. There are two main ways to add kilometres to your individual Big Ride for Little Kids page:
1. You can connect your Strava, Fitbit, Garmin or MapMyFitness account to the Big Ride for Little Kids platform. Each ride you complete will be automatically synced to your fundraising page. To do this, simply go to Connect to Strava/FitbitGarminMapMyFitness in the left-hand menu of your dashboard.
2. Add your rides manually via the 'add manual rides' tab on your dashboard or through the 'manual entry' option on the mobile view.
Why aren't my ride kms updating?
While you can add test rides to your challenge page before March 1, the overall total will remain at 0km until the challenge commences on March 1.
All test rides will be automatically removed from the platform on March 1 and do not count towards your challenge. We allow you to add test rides prior to this date in order to get comfortable with how the platform will work once the challenge's ride period commences.
During the challenge, you might experience a little delay between seeing the activity on your page if you’re using an app. This is due to a limit on syncs per day between some third-party apps. If you want instant gratification – we recommend logging your activity manually!
How do I change my km goal?
To change your km goal:
- Log into your profile.
- Navigate to 'My Fitness Activity'.
- Scroll down to 'Set Your Target Distance'.
- Change the distance.
- Click 'Save'.
TRACKING KMS VIA APPS
How do I connect Strava/Fitbit/MapMyFitness/Garmin?
1. Log into your Camp Quality account.
2. Hover under your name on the top right and select 'My Fitness Activity'.
3. Click on the Strava/Fitbit/MapMyFitness/Garmin logo under 'Connect your preferred fitness app'.
4. Log into your Strava/Fitbit/MapMyFitness/Garmin account and it should automatically sync.
The Big Ride for Little Kids platform will pull your rides across from Strava/Fitbit/MapMyFitness/Garmin provided the ride is saved as 'public', your profiles master privacy setting isn't enabled, and it is saved as a 'cycling' activity type.
How do I disconnect Strava/Fitbit/MapMyFitness/Garmin?
If you would like to disconnect your Strava, Fitbit MapMyFitness or Garmin account, preventing any future rides from syncing, you can disconnect it from the Connect Apps page on your dashboard.
No further ride information will be pulled across from Strava, Fitbit, MapMyFitness or Garmin once it has been disconnected.
Why isn't my ride syncing?
There's three common causes for rides not syncing.
If your ride doesn't sync with your online page within three days of saving it, then you may need to check the following possible causes:
- The platform was connected after the ride is recorded: we can only pull rides across that are saved after you have connected your account with the Big Ride for Little Kids platform. No rides prior to this time will be brought across to your page.
- Privacy settings: if the ride is saved as ‘Private’ or you have your ‘Enhanced Privacy’ master setting enabled in your account, you cannot sync the ride to our platform. This ride will not be pulled across if you change the privacy after the fact, either, so you will need to export the GPX file and import it on the Add/Delete Ride page of your Big Ride for Little Kids Dashboard.
- Wrong activity type: Big Ride for Little Kids can only pull 'Rides' across, so if your activity has accidentally been saved as a Run or other non-cycling activity type, then it will not sync across to your Big Ride for Little Kids page.
Can I use Runtastic, Google Fit, and Apple Watch etc?
Unfortunately, the platform used doesn't have an automated connection with Runtastic, Google Fit, Apple Watches and other devices and apps. However, you can still use these devices/apps to take part.
You can manually enter in a ride to represent the distance recorded during your cycling. You can do this via the 'My Fitness Activity' page on your dashboard.
Do I need to remit the funds donated to my online fundraising page?
All donations made are automatically remitted to Camp Quality.
Are donations tax deductible?
Any donation over $2 is tax-deductible. A receipt will be sent to the email address you provide when making a donation.
I’ve raised funds on Facebook but they’re not showing up on my page.
Facebook donations are handled by a third party and, unfortunately, we can’t sync these donations with your personal fundraising page due to limitations within the Facebook Donate functionality. We advise you do not use the Facebook Donate button to raise funds and recommend that you simply share the link to your fundraising page on your social media pages.
How do I upload cash 'offline' donations to my page?
If you’ve received cash and want to add it to your fundraising page, all you have to do is: Login to your dashboard, go to ‘My Donations’ and click ‘Add Offline Donation’. Fill in the details to issue a receipt to the individual/team who gave you the cash. If you get stuck, please send an email to: [email protected].
How do I say 'thanks' to my donors?
You should always say thank you to the amazing friends, family and colleagues who sponsor your challenge so we have provided two easy ways to say thanks:
Below each donation will be a 'Say Thanks' button (you will only see the link while logged in). You can click on this link to write a public thank you message to your donor and they will be notified of your gratitude by email.
You can also find a 'thank you' email template in your rider dashboard, which you can copy and paste into an email to your donor to thank them privately.
Who was my anonymous donor?
Lots of people are curious about who donates to them anonymously – but unfortunately as the donor has elected to remain anonymous, we are unable to share this information with you.
You can, however, ensure that the generous supporter is aware of your gratitude for their support by leaving a thank you message on their donation. Just press the 'Say Thanks' link under the donation (you must be logged in to see this link) and write a message. The donor will be notified by email.
How can I turn donation notifications on/off?
You can be notified each time a person donates to your challenge via email.
You can turn this setting on/off using the check box on the Edit My Page area of your dashboard.
How can someone sponsor me by credit card?
People can make a donation using credit card or PayPal on your online fundraising page. Once the donation has been made, the donor will appear at the bottom of your page (unless they choose to remain anonymous) and your page fundraising tally will automatically update with their donation. They will receive an automatic receipt via email as well.
AFTER YOUR BIG RIDE
When are donation receipts issued?
All donations, regardless of value, will be receipted within five minutes of the funds being deposited. All donations over the value of $2 are tax deductible.
We cannot receipt the donation until the funds have been received.
I've received a cash donation. What do I do?
If you’ve received cash and want to add it to your fundraising page, all you have to do is login to your dashboard, go to ‘My Donations’ and click ‘Add Offline Donation’. Fill in the details to issue a receipt to the individual/team who gave you the cash.
