Gain newfound health plus a chance to win vacations, bikes and apparel during this friendly, free competition
The Love to Ride Challenge is back, with chances to win prizes while gaining the benefits of bicycling during a fun, free national challenge this September.
Anyone can join the challenge – individuals and company teams alike – to log biking miles taken for fitness or commuting. For extra motivation, the challenge has great prizes up for grabs, including vacations, bikes and apparel from Vespertine NYC and SWRVE, as well as many other rewards.
To join the fun, just register at the Love to Ride website. Then start bicycling and logging your miles.
This friendly competition will feature a local Houston challenge (click here), national and even global leaderboards across seven categories.
Workplaces joining the challenge can win their category and prizes by accumulating the highest points among their staff. Individual riders are eligible to win prizes by riding, as well as by simply encouraging others to bike.
“It’s a fun way to unlock the benefits of bicycling,” says Kelly Rector, TDM program manager for the Energy Corridor District. “Getting on your bike is fun, healthy and gives you a sense of freedom that can be fulfilling. The challenge provides extra motivation to get on your bikes and ride.”
Presenting sponsor 3M is making the challenge free for those living or working in the United States.
Once registered, riders enter their bicycling trips on the Love to Ride website. To make it easier to log miles, riders can link this challenge to a cycling app such as Ride Report, Strava, MapMyRide or Endomondo.
On the Love to Ride site, you can track mileage, earn badges, share photos and send cycling encouragement to others. The site also allows workplaces to incentivize their staff to ride, while tracking participation.
