Challenge yourself to ride more this summer
The National Bike Challenge is a nationwide event uniting thousands of current bicyclists—and encouraging countless new riders. It is a free and easy way to challenge yourself, your colleagues and your community to ride more while competing on a local, state and national level. The 2017 Challenge is hosted by the League of American Bicyclists and made possible by the generous support of 3M.
Join the Challenge
Get Involved as a Participant
Join the National Bike Challenge online through creating a Strava account using your email address. Log your miles manually or through the Strava app. As you log your miles and earn points, you can see where you stack up on the leaderboards with other participants across the country. Invite your friends, family members and coworkers to join you!
Get Involved with a Workplace
Your company can create a workplace group as a way to promote bicycling in the office(s). The Challenge is an awesome, free tool to motivate your coworkers to ride to work or ride for fun. You’ll all be riding for the same team, but will also be able to see where you stand against your coworkers. Use the Challenge to promote riding and create a little friendly competition within the office or between worksites.

Show some school spirit while you log your miles! Take part in the Challenge with fellow students and staff. This category is open to all elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and universities.
Get Involved with a Team & League
Once you sign up, you can log your miles with a team made up of your friends, family and coworkers. Ask everyone you know to join in! Compete with other teams through creating a League between two Teams.
