The National Bike Challenge – May through August 2012
The National Bike Challenge is an opportunity to challenge yourself to ride more often. Record your rides, and add up the miles you’ve ridden, the calories you’ve burned, and the gas money you’ve saved. You can connect with other riders in the challenge, or embrace the spirit of competition by winning points for your employer, your community, or your state. You also become eligible for prize drawings after you’ve logged just three days on your bike.
You’ll be part of a team of more than fifty thousand riders logging over ten million miles, demonstrating the power of the bicycle to build healthy people, healthy communities, and a healthy planet.
Participation is free, and open to anyone in the United States, or who is employed by a participating U.S.-based company.
Everybody wins when we get people riding more, but hundreds of participants will win gear in our monthly prize drawings, including:
Early Bird Prizes: Join before May 1, and you could be 1 of 12 winners of a National Bike Challenge Commuter Kits, including a National Bike Summit tote bags, a Planet Bike taillight and bell set, a Bikes Belong water bottle, League of American Bicyclist socks, and more.
Monthly Prize Drawings: With just three days of riding, you become eligible for monthly drawings, and as you ride more, the prizes get better. Bronze level prizes include hats, water bottles, and multi-tools. Log more miles, and you could win a helmet, jersey, or event a bike. The Grand Prizes, drawn from the riders a the top tier, are bike trips in Napa or Moab.
Take Home a Trophy: There are National Challenge plaques for the businesses, individuals, communities, states, and teams that rack up the most points. Compete against Facebook, Trek, Specialized, Mars, and other businesses of all sizes.
Join now, start logging your miles, and become eligible for earlybird prizes!
