About the cycling challenge
During a six months season (details follow) you will climb 20 mountaintops of varying difficulty. The main goal is to reach the top – climb them at you own pace. Each edition has its start and end date depending on the region but all editions last exactly 6 months. See the "editions" page on www.twentypeaks.com for more details on each edition.
How does it work?
1. Sign up to one of the DAMA TWENTY PEAKS editions on www.twentypeaks.com and connect your Strava account to your Twenty Peaks account.
2. Receive your DAMA TWENTY PEAKS jersey by currier or at the pickup point of your choice.
3. Choose 20 climbs out of the total available in your edition and start climbing as soon as your edition goes live. Twenty Peaks will automatically pull your efforts from Strava and mark the climbs you have climbed.
4. Complete the challenge before the 6 months are over to become a FINISHER! As such you are eligible to purchase the finishers top-notch bib short at a ridiculously low price reserved only to you.
5. If you wish to compete in the personal classification try to perform the 20 climbs marked with the golden framed pin. You don’t necessarily have to complete them all but the more you do and the faster you climb the more classification points you’ll get.

Use of E bikes
The DAMA Twenty Peaks challenge is designed for human powered bicycles only. E bikes or any other means of motorised transportation are strictly forbidden and may cause disqualification of the person using them without reimbursement and at the sole discretion of the organisers.
Arriving at the start point and climbing
The routes we provide to each mountaintop are bounding and you have to follow them strictly for a successful registration of that segment on Strava and thus a successful accreditation of the climb on Twenty Peaks.
Clubs can have 1-10 members. Every time you complete a climb you earn your club 10 points in classification. Classified climbs worth 1 to 15 bonus points on top of the basic points - depending on your rank for that specific climb.
You have to be admitted to a club by it's administrator and you are free to leave any time. You can only be part of one club at a time.
Should you decide to leave a club the points you earned up to that point will remain with that club. You can repeat a climb to earn new points for your new club but you can't win multiple points on the same climb to the same club.
Bonus points are dynamic because they depend on you current position in classification, therefor if you change clubs your bonus point will travel with you to the new club. The winner club at the end of the season will be rewarded for the effort.
Safety while riding
The DAMA TWENTY PEAKS challenge and the routes included in it are designed for experienced cyclists in good physical shape and condition. Consult your physician before taking on this challenge. We do our best to choose a variety of climbs with different difficulty levels and great scenery but cannot guaranty they will not present hazards, blockage or changed path the day you choose to climb them. The information presented on the web site or applications is to be considered auxiliary information and participants should check it independently prior to climbing a certain peak. All riders should wear a helmet. You should consider using additional protections, especially on mountain bike trails. We recommend that you ride in company and make sure your gear is in good order. Make sure the battery on your mobile phone is charged and use rear and front lights to be seen well by other users of the road. When riding on paved roads keep to the side of the lane (right or left – depending on the traffic rules in your country). Avoid riding in bad weather conditions and poor visibility and make sure you have a quick dial number to local emergency services.
