ORBEA INDOOR 500 CHALLENGE: We keep moving!

The passion has been unleashed and, in just fifteen days, more than 1,700 athletes have answered the call of the Orbea Indoor 500 Challenge. And going up … We stayed at home, but we continue with our sport activity thanks to this event, which we organized in our club in Strava.


It is exciting. We are attending a movement of passionate people who open the doors of their home to show us where they train. Some pedal to the rhythm of the music; others attacking on the Tourmalet or competing on MTB circuits thanks to the magic of the interactive roller or other rollers. 3 or 4 hour sessions or series training.

Some people compete on the terrace, in the storage room and even in the private gym while watching the snow falling outside. There is also who shares the paella and the cup of wine that awaits when gettting off the roll. We are having fun.


We invite you to join our Orbea club on Strava, where we are already more than 11,000 members. Join and you will be able to participate in this great event. You can enter Orbea Indoor 500 Challenge through the following link:


Hurry up! We have been on the move for two weeks now. We will present you with various challenges. Get them and choose good gifts. Do you want to know who have been awarded during these first fifteen days of challenges?

-Markel Orive and Fritz Gesell: an Orbea equipement. -Paola Galvis: an Orbea Factory Team equipement. -Ella van der Veer: one of the equipements that our riders would have exhibited at the Cape Epic. -Álvaro Lázaro and Marc Farré: an Orbea casual clothing pack. -Borja Valdés: a pack of casual clothing designed for the Cape Epic.

If you are there, congratulations. We will contact you personally to thank you for your complicity and confirm the great news.


Would you also like to be the protagonist? Well now is the time: we start another two weeks in which your sports practice (cyclist or otherwise) is rewarded. These are the challenges and prizes that we put into circulation until April 12. It will be on the 14th when we introduce the people awarded. Take note:

-We will randomly deliver an Orbea equipement among those who achieve the Itzulia Time Trial challenge. The challenge is to complete on the roller the distance of the time trial that was scheduled in Itzulia (Tour of the Basque Country) in less than 31'39''. You will have to pedal the 21.1 km of the stage at an average of -at least- 40 km / h. This means that you will have 25% extra time with respect to the out of control set by the organization, taking into account an estimate of 25'19'' for the winner.

-We will randomly deliver an Orbea Factory Team equipement to those who reach 500 minutes of physical activity.

We will randomly deliver, among all the people who join the event, one of the equipements that our riders would have exhibited at the Cape Epic.

-We will randomly deliver an Orbea equipement among all the people who complete half the distance that it was planned to cover in this year's Itzulia (897.9 km). Therefore, at least 448.95 km.

In addition to participating in Strava, you have the option to participate in the Orbea Indoor Challenge on social networks Instagram and Facebook, where we reward and publish the most original contributions. Use #Orbea500Challenge hashtag and share your photos or videos in action.

-We will randomly deliver a pack of Orbea casual clothing among those who upload the most original photo.

-We will randomly deliver a pack of casual clothing designed for the Cape Epic among those who upload the most original video.

-We will randomly deliver a pack of casual clothes among those who share their family activity.


On the other hand, various friend brands participate in the Orbea Indoor Challenge, giving out “flash” prizes to those who achieve specific challenges in their training days: for those who pedal the longest distance, for those who do the longest activities, etc… Cycling equipment, saddles, nutrition kits or cleaning equipment have been the awards to date, thanks to brands such as Škoda, Fundación Euskadi, Selle Italia, Isostar, WNT, fizik or Muc-Off.

Stefan Gerlach, Cristian González, Iker González and Enric Marín have achieved “flash” awards in the first two weeks. Soon, new articles, new brands… and new challenges will be added.


In addition to the activities and challenges that we offer you, the Orbea Indoor Challenge comes with a program of events to make your days at home more bearable.

For the first two weeks, we've broadcast live on Instagram in collaboration with our teams, ambassadors, and friends. From training sessions and roller, or physical preparation, to other content for the whole family, such as videos with prestigious chefs. New entertainment formulas that are having a huge acceptance.
