The 2013 National Bike Challenge united Americans to pedal 19 million miles and sights are set even higher for 2014. The goal of the the friendly, online competition remains the same: to get more Americans bicycling, whether it’s for fun, for work or for health. But the 2014 Challenge is looking for 50,000 riders to pedal 30 million miles.
The National Bike Challenge runs from May 1 to September 30. The new Challenge website will make it easier than ever to log miles and encourage other riders. It will allow users to choose from three different mobile applications, in addition to manually logging miles ridden on a computer. Users can pick from Moves, MapMyRide or Endomondo, allowing users to seamlessly synch their trips throughout the Challenge.
Riders will also be able to create and build new online communities beyond teams, workplaces and cities. “Leagues” will allow teams and workplaces to compete in additional categories. Administrators can create their own public or private leagues to face new opponents.
It’s never too soon or too late to join the Challenge. Ride your bike for fun, to work, on the trail—anytime you can.
