Rider levels are determined by how many McR points (link McR points to “How do I earn points” link) that rider has earned through their contributions and activities on McR. The higher the points, the higher the Rider Levels that rider earns. The first level, Novice, is reached when that rider has earned McR 20 points. The second level, expert, is reached when the rider has earned 50 McR points. And the current (subject to change) highest level, master, is reached when that rider has earned 150 McR points. Overall, earning McR points is a way to not only earn status for yourself, but more importantly, by contributing information and activities that help make McR a stronger resource for helping riders find the best motorcycle roads & experience the best motorcycle rides!
