A Cleveland Championship in Sight
What a terrific comeback! Just two months ago Pittsburgh was ahead in the National Bike Challenge by as many as 50,000 miles. Today Cleveland is within 150 miles of Pittsburgh total. It is time to rally and show everyone that we are the rust belt biking capital and bring home a well deserved championship to Cleveland. Keep logging in those miles for the next 19 days.
Remember that logging your miles is more than just about bragging rights. there are prizes involved here including a Trek Bike or a year’s supply of Scott Brand toilet paper.
Here is how it works. Go to NationalBikeChallenge.org and log on every mile you have ridden since May 1, 2013. Once you have done that, get on your social media pages and tell all your friends to do the same. Need help? Go to the step-by-step presentation about signing-up and logging miles.
The purpose of the contest is to encourage everyone to get on their bike every day and ride. I you do that you earn twenty points for riding that first mile. Do this each and every day and the points add up to prizes. The challenge winner will be decided by points not miles so log even the short trips to the post office and grocery store.
