: Share Your Experience


Done something good for myself this year! Thankful to Togoparts and the team behind it for coming up with this challenge and the beautiful jersey design which was a really good motivation to reach the goals. Uploading of ride info and the whole process was hassle free and I enjoyed the journey in the past 2 months. Well done to the team and I am excited for future editions of the challenge in 2018 and beyond! :D

I had a very good time finishing up this challenge with my partner. Even though I did not make it to the elite distance like I did at togo817, it is still a great accomplishment! Kudos to togo for continually keeping Singapore cycling community active!

roadbug - 1 year ago

It was definitely a challenge for me. Even though I have no problems cycling big distances as I am quite used to it while training for ironman events, to cycle for the sake of completing a challenge is tough. I prefer indoor cycling for my cycling fix... as on a trainer, a brutal High Intensity Interval Training is safe, fast and efficient. 30mins is really quite long and tough, if you are going all out on the high intensity portions. Alas, all these are not captured for the togo challenge.

Moreover, the consistent rain made things a bit challenging... Having young kids and a demanding teaching career means that cycling outdoors time is limited to commuting to work, and the odd times that the wife and kids are asleep.

Nevertheless, it was a worthwhile pursuit. Will definitely sign up again in 2018.

Grateful for the TOGOHALF challenge that once again gave me good reason to get on the saddle and just be out there, going places! Would definitely go for the TOGO1117 in future!

My wife and I recently picked up Cycling back in April this year, on a Polygon Tandem. We cycled recreationally at first and decided to put some serious effort into it. We got a Cannondale Tandem and rode and average of 120km per week and progressively increasing month on month and made 200km thereabouts the average.

We heard of Togo rides and never once thought of participarting but after seeing friends complete earlier iterations of it, we decided that it may just be a good idea to test our mettle and signed up for the TogoHalf. Almost a day after doing so, we decided heck, why not the 1117 and so we did.

Surprisingly, after planning and scheduling our rides and completnig ahead of what we planned for, we finished the 1117km on the 6th week.

What was tough to combat was the weather, at times work schedules conflict and more than often, the mental hurdle of 2 persons rather than 1 - you know, being lazy etc. Now that all's completed, i must state categorically that the satisfaction is heavenly. more so that its been completed on a Tandemm bike!.

both of us will be looking towards the next togo and might just go for the Elite when the time comes!.

ride safe all.

antiloop - 1 year ago

It's my first TOGO challenge, and I am really happy to have completed it. This challenge gave me the motivation to cycle more frequently, longer distances, and under hot weather which I would otherwise not have done.

tarepanda - 1 year ago

It was a great experience. I'm glad that I was able to complete the challenge despite having O' level this year. Definetly will be looking foward for the next challenge!(:

It was overall a great #TOGO1117 experience, albeit the immature ruckus from a bunch of road barbarians.

Grateful for all the LIKES, encouragements, guidance received, and new found friends.

Thank you to EVAN, JINA, and TOGOPARTS.

Hope that the organizer will learn from this ugly episode and exercise due assertiveness to your rights than be overruled by such sourpus*ies (than winners).

TOGO1117 is much more intense than TOGO817, but with some determination and discipline, and good weather, finally able to complete the challenge. Thank you Togoparts for arranging the challenge and event. Hopefully you can arrange some charity rides in the future. Cheers :)

foxroque - 1 year ago

Thanks God for HIS blessing on all of us who cycled safely in this event. I have personally enjoyed the challenge and had a very good Tour de Bintan trip with Spin Doctors team + Mobike challenge in China. I had achieved a few new records in my personal distance challenge (longest day distance + longest event distance). Lose even more weight this time but I need to gain it back healthily. Thank you Spin Doctors team and Togoparts organiser.

Kudos and Thanks to all whom I have crossed path with

And...
My thoughts on the recent drama
Inspired By Queen - We will Rock You
Here it goes...

We Will Flag You

Buddy you’re a fag make a big noise
Riding in the street gonna be a big “CHUMP” some day
You got crap in your brain
You big disgrace
Kicking up "FUSS" all over the place

Singin

We will we will FLAG You
We will we will FLAG You

Buddy you’re a “PUSS” whining all the time
Rolling in the street thinking you would own the world some day
You got pea for a brain
You big disgrace
Parade your "GLORY" all over the place

We will we will FLAG You
Sing it
We will we will FLAG You

Coin yourself as Soldier, fighter, warrior
Flagging others‘ ride to be righteous in some way
You got no CREED on your face
Big disgrace
Somebody better put you back into your CRIB

We will we will FLAG you
(Sing it!)
We will we will FLAG you

(Everybody)

We will we will FLAG you
We will we will FLAG you

(Alright)

Peace Out \m/ O.O \m/

Togo 1117, I have enjoyed cycling with my cycling buddies, cycling friends, Togo cyclists and Team Speed Rocket buddies during this challenge.
We always encourage each other to keep on pedaling even we have encounter some unpleasant events.
Lastly. I like to thanks all that I met on the roads...Ride safely and longer distance whenever you can.

Another excuse to go out riding.. and missing out on togo817 due to work commitments, just glad to be able to squeeze the time to complete togo1117km...

Han Swifter - 1 year ago

I have only 4 weeks to complete the 1117km as I am out of sg. If I could have 8 weeks elite ride should not be an issue to me.

Congrats to all who completed the challenge and also those who gotten elite

Based on my view, I would suggest the 2018 challenge to fix the rule of all sensors are require for the rides. Rather than rider suspect each other and flagging all over the place.

terencetan1978 - 1 year ago

Just getting it over and done with... Lol...

alyciagoh - 1 year ago

Great experience! At first I thougnt I wasn't going to make to the elite because I missed a lot of on riding days. But I challenged myself to push hard and and complete the 2517 km requirement. And now, success! How sweet it is!

Lomar - 1 year ago

I was this close! The PCN ****** me 162km from the finish! So close... I was so close to getting all three. It's like deja vu from 920 where I also could've gotten it if not for the injury in the last week. Thanks to my teammates in Team Speed Rocket and all the other cycling circles that have inspired and motivated me to ride. Kudos to TOGO team for the event. Looking forward to another season, if any, so I can finally drive the final nail... I was this close!

Greybach - 1 year ago

1 year ago, I started cycling again and was struggling at about 35km. Now, 1 year later, I had completed togo517. togo817 and togo1187. I found it unbelievable but through these 3 challenges, I have managed to keep pushing my personal limits and the last personal milestone is 101km in 1 ride.

I still remember my first reaction when I heard about the togo517 was cynical; why give money to others to make myself cycle. But now, especially through these 3 challenges later, I am supportive of these challenges and a thumbs up!

peterteo - 1 year ago

Well don't bother about this TogoSHIT anymore... Next Togo I not keen to join anymore.. I rather have time host for long distance ride oversea or plan for Bintan or Batam trip..

This Togo feels like playing game..u flag me.. I flag u... See whose email or flag report is more powerful or story more convincing...

????????????
Next Togo just suggest must wear heart rate monitor to count the ride.. No HP allow.. To use to clock. Best to make it a compulsory to use heart rate monitor then can count the actual real rides.

That would be the most accurate information we can see for the ride...

Those who did and finish it.. Congrats and well done.. As those who have cheated and cycle without having sore leg or aching muscles.. Pls consider to join national team soon. We need you to get a GOLD for our country.

Those on escooter, beware... The fine is $5000 and impound your toys.

- Cheat with style but don't get caught.

geoffery.ho - 1 year ago

Congratulations to my Team Speed Rocketeers & many awesome TOGO cyclists who joined in this 1117 journey ????. I was fortunate to cycle also in Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia this time, to do more exploring on two wheels.

My favourite part of this challenge was of course, meeting all my old & new cycling friends and doing our fun leisure rides.

Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike ????????

becstar - 1 year ago

Despite being my first Togo challenge, I'm glad I kept it up and finished the Elite 2517 at 31st place, especially considering that I finished the 1117 only at 116th place. I guess the main lesson is to keep pedaling and break a big goal into more manageable smaller chunks. I did majority, like 98% of the challenge as a solo rider, I look forward to having some buddies to ride together for next year's challenges.

marcelmuliawan - 1 year ago

It's been an amazing 4 months starting from TOGO817, 10 years since i bought my 1st bicycle and i have never ridden so much before in my life, it's been very tiring so far but the experience is fantastic. Aside from losing weight and inchs off my waist, also learnt a great deal about bike maintenance and ride planning. Also met many other cyclist along the way which really helps to motivate one to ride more. looking forward to Togo2018's challenges.

fastfrag1981 - 1 year ago

While I did not manage to complete the elite finisher this time round, I managed to keep pace and finished the Well-Traveled again. Kudos to myself, and I will strive better in Togo Challenge 2018! Bring it on!

sgayanami - 1 year ago

An interesting and fulfilling journey of self-induced “slavery” (i say this with fondness - lol) that involved much time management, sacrifice and determination. Cheers to my Team Speed Rocket teammates for the motivation, camaraderie and laughter ~ you folks are awesome! Alas positivity is usually accompanied by negativity, and it is unfortunate that a lovely experience as such has been tainted by few who opted to take the challenge too seriously.

Anyway kudos to Togoparts for this trio of events, and huge cheers to all finishers, and for those who didn’t…. well… there’s always next time! Ride on and ride safe!

alana07 - 1 year ago

The sense of self achievement is far greater when you see your team work hard and achieve the goals together. Despite, the heat from the sun, thunderstorms n heavy rains, lack of sleep, injuries, butt sore..we still never stop pedaling. Each of us contribute all we can individually in a righteous way. Integrity n honesty are cast in our heart n mind. We are taught well by our close ones since young. It’s not about fame that we are going for, ITS ALL ABOUT WHAT WE CAN DO FOR THE TEAM N OURSELVES. How we achieve the awards are truly based on our own honest efforts. Indeed, this togo challenge is meant to be a friendly match, but sadly thru this I have experienced the lost of friends whom I respected n admired most since I joined cycling circle, who does little tricks just to stay at the position! WORST, wrongly accused and dampened the hope to continue staying in the cycling society has been smashed! The admiration and desires to ride with them (rode once and enjoyed it) frequently have been vanished! Apart from this, all the un-call for incivility, disrespects to one another n obvious favoritism, have shown the lack of sportsmanship thru this “Friendly match”. So sadden to see..Greeds and Unfairness are everywhere. Now I understand why many of my friends just so refuse and against in joining...This will be last journey with this “friendly match” challenge.

Lessons to share: There are 2 lessons that I learnt:
1. Do it Once, Do it Right, Do it Well. I work for somebody. If I do my work well, my colleagues and bosses have no reason to bitch that I’m leaving the office on time to go cycling.
2. Don't have a dream. Take each challenge as a short term goal. Achieve that, move on for the next short term goal. For example, if you keep on having a dream that you want to be in this and that position, or achieve this and that mileage, then you’ll be stressed and not enjoy the competition.

This time round I formed team with road bike, cyclocross and myself riding mountain bike despite our differences in discipline, I am glad we were able to push the limit together and complete this TOGO1117 challenge. I have a wonderful experience! #respectthedifference #cyclistunite

Riding With Kakis of different type of bike, all along the seletar homeground then also ride to TMCR many times. Eddy Merckx EMX-1 (Shiro) have been a trust ride thoughtout the togoX challenge. Not forgotting Obike to clock more out of the Garmin ride.

chiatming - 1 year ago

totally upset with the whole running of this challenge, those who caught cheating was not disqualify and even have a chance to proceed. Seem like you just need to get into the good book and you will be save from doing what you want during the challenge. TOTALLY UNHAPPY and this will be my FIRST AND LAST!

1st time joining Togo Challenge and I would say it was a breath-taking experience.

Looking forward to Togo Challenge 2018!
