The 2017 Bike More Challenge is kicking off May 1st! Our whole office is planning to participate and you should too!
This free Challenge is designed to engage businesses across Oregon in a friendly competition to see which business can get the most people to bike during the month of May (which is National Bike Month).
Each year over 10,000 individuals participate in the Challenge in which workplace teams log their cycling trips (both work and non-work related) between May 1-31. A points model is used to determine winners across various business size categories. Points are awarded for logged rides, as well as for the recruitment of new riders. Prizes are earned not only for challenge winners, but also for reaching various benchmarks along the way, including full access to the Chinook Book for 90 days!
The Bike More Challenge is fun, free, and a great way to get people riding!

Need to ready your ride for the challenge? Save some money with one of these coupons to a local bike shop.
