National Bike Challenge. Every year from May to September, People for Bikes runs the National Bike Challenge – free registration at www.nationalbikechallenge.org. This is a fun way to log your miles and participate as our county competes with other areas of the country . Prizes are randomly drawn from participants, but you have to score more points to be able to win the top prizes. This isn’t a speed contest, as points are awarded for daily riding and total miles. You can manually log your rides, or the challenge can now sync with your Strava, Endomondo, or Map My Ride accounts. You can look at where you stand within your city, county, or state, as well as nationwide.
