We are getting closer to the kick off of this nationwide bike challenge. Encourage your friends, relatives, coworkers, classmates, companies, and businesses to join this nationwide challenge. Thousands of riders from companies, businesses, schools, colleges, and universities across the country have already joined and are warming up. This is not just for hardcore cyclists, but for everyone of every age who lives, works, or goes to school here in America. The goal is to unite 75,000 riders to ride 35 million miles from May 1-September 30 when days are long. There is no cost to join and prizes will be given away every month during the challenge in various levels of achievement, including grand prize drawings for bikes and trips at the end of the challenge. More than 60% of all trips in the US are less than 5 miles and are easily traveled by bike. Bike commuting has grown 60% in the last 10 years.
