App sync with National Bike Challenge?

The Kimberly-Clark National Bike Challenge now supports syncing with Strava in addition to Endomondo, MapMyRide, and Moves. You log your miles to one of these popular activity tracking applications, and I think it’s supposed to automatically upload your activity to your National Bike Challenge account.

Except for me, it doesn’t seem to work.

I linked my Strava account to my National Bike Challenge account; for National Bike Challenge to see my activity, however, I must go to the Bike Challenge website, click through “Edit My Profile,” and hit the “Sync” button.

Is this normal? The FAQ says ” Your miles will automatically sync to your National Bike Challenge account.” To me, this implies no requirement to manually sync my rides.

Am I missing something?

    Hmm. Not working for me either. If this doesn’t happen automatically, I’m out. šŸ™

    I also had to manually sync to get my Strava rides to appear. It doesn’t seem to be the most reliable even with this method — I had to try it twice in order to get anything to show up.

    Your hyperlink to the National Bike Challenge is missing the g of .org.

    The UI for the Nat’l Bike Challenge is terrible. I can’t figure out how to edit logged miles or even see them ones I’ve logged. And why isn’t there a mobile app? It is 2015!!!
