 Why would anyone go down climax?

 You're actually climbing in this direction to get to the start of Field of Dreams. You don't actually descend all of Upper Climax.

 I guess nobody will get option 3 as climax isn't listed on the ride.

 The way badges work is that you only need to ride the trails listed on the badge. Because only part of Upper Climax is being used we couldn't list that trail, otherwise, if we did list it on the badge no one would qualify for it because riders would not do all of it. So creating the route is separate from the badge, if that makes sense.

 Thanks for letting me know. I’ll have to dig into it and see why. How do I check your ride log too? Any chance you can post or send it to me? Thanks!

 Hi Ron, I see the mistake. 2 flats is in the badge criteria but not in the route. Apologies. You're still entered to win for having gotten a badge.
thanks for letting me know.

 Hey Chris, thanks and apologies again for the mixup. So long as you achieved one badge, you’re legit in the draw. Cheers!

 Hey, I just checked your ridelog and for some reason your ride did not record Sobo no michi lower section, so you didn't register any badges. You may be able to manually edit the route?? I'm not sure why GPS track would be off but same thing happened to another person.

 Yeah I don't know why that occurred. I never usually record my rides. Maybe some sort of mobile glitch.Did the whole route I will be out again this week and record again. See what happens

 I checked with the Trailforks gods and they’ve said it is usually a bad GPS reading by the user for whatever reason. You also may be able to manually add the trail to your ride. I’m not sure how to do this. Thanks for the support though and another ride sounds like a good plan.

 It is located under “badges” but the criteria is incomplete. Does not show all the required trails.

flag mrtcumberland UROC (Jul 9, 2020 at 19:01)
 All the trails can’t be shown in the badge because the route doesn’t use the entire trail. If you name the trail in the badge you have to ride the entire trail which is why the badge is missing certain trails that appear in the route

 Was only awarded for route #1 but rode route #3. Does that make any difference?

 For whatever reason your ride did not record upper crafty. This has been happening to others and is usually a gps issue. You may be able to manually add upper crafty to your ridelog.
This is why you weren't awarded a badge for #3.

 I too did not receive the badge for #3.... for some reason Trestle is showing as a partial match(?) though I did ride the whole trail. Can you please review my July 12 ride log and let me know where/what the issue is ....Thanks

 I've been told this has to do with gps recording. Try manually adding the trail to your route? If that fails try contacting TF admin to get the badge awarded. Nice ride BTW!

 Normally I keep my ride logs set as private, however I completed the route 3 today and haven't received the badge yet. Does my ride need to be set as public to receive the badge? Thanks

 No, I don’t think so. Check your ridelog and be sure you received credit for each trail in the badge criteria. You could also try making it public to see.
