Cleveland Bike Challenge!

This free challenge runs from May 1st to August 31st and will be held as part of a national effort thanks to our collaboration with Kimberly Clark LLC, the League of American BicyclistsBikes Belong and web developer Endomondo.com. This nation-wide effort has resulted in a pretty incredible calculator that allows you to log your miles, greenhouse gas emissions reduced, calories burned, and money saved just by biking and logging your miles. Participants in the Challenge compete as individuals, teams of 10, workplaces, cities and states.  And because of the tie to the national challenge, you can see your standing on both local and national levels! You can easily log your miles on the challenge website or there is an app that smartphone users can download right from a tab on the homepage to directly track and log the trips you take. All bike rides count, but a point system is in place that heavily credits daily trips giving people who use bikes for transportation an advantage (+20 points for each day you ride +1 for each mile.)

Let?s show the rest of the nation that Cleveland is an emerging cycling city!  That means we?re going to need to register more people and log more miles this summer than ever before. Sign up today to take part in the pre-season, create your team, and be good to go when the real action begins on May 1.
