Social Badger Challenge

Get ready for the NSMBA’s 2021 Spring/Summer “Social Badger Challenge”!

What is the Social Badger Challenge? 

The “NSMBA Social Badger Challenge” is a series of ride challenges through the badge system on Trailforks. Not sure what a Trailforks badge is? Click here to find out!

How does it work?

Every Sunday for the next 8 weeks, we will be revealing a unique badge(s) that you will have 1 week to unlock (Sunday to Saturday). Each badge will be unlocked differently but keep in mind that speed is not a factor so keep it chill and braid your hair, not the trails.

In order to unlock a badge, you must log your ride(s) on the Trailforks app, or sync your ride from Strava. If you complete the badge’s challenge, the badge will automatically be granted to you and show up on your profile.

If you have logged a ride and Trailforks is not picking up that you rode a certain trail(s), you can correct it by following the steps in this video:

For every badge you gain, you will be entered to win some fabulous prizes from each badge’s presenting sponsor (listed below). Prize winners will be messaged through Trailforks. Everyone who completes a badge will also get a free and unique sticker that can be collected at each sponsor’s location! 

Please note that while anyone can unlock the badges, you must be a NSMBA member to be eligible to win any prizes. You can grab your membership HERE

The specific details of each badge will be linked below and released every week on Sunday morning.

Get ready to become a badger.
