RiTMO: The number every cyclist needs to know

RiTMO ratings, Cycling Weekly Cycling Club

As part of our new Cycling Weekly Cycling Club, we've introduced a rating system that shows you how your cycling performance compares to everyone else's. We've called it RiTMO, and it's like a golf handicap system for road cyclists.

RiTMO is a kind of rolling average of your best three recent rides. The scale goes from 0 to 28, lower means better and only the best are good enough to reach 0.
