Track Your Rides To Win Prizes

Sign up with Strava to track your rides throughout Bike Month. Each ride is an entry to win prizes from local businesses in regular raffles. Prizes will also be awarded to those who top the leaderboards for most rides, miles, and elevation gain. We also celebrate everybody’s biggest ride of the month and those who encourage others to sign up. There’s a category for everyone!

Create or join a team with your friends or your workplace to compete together on the Team Leaderboards. Earn a point for your team with every mile you ride, up to 5 miles per day. Plus this year you’ll get a bonus point for each person who joins your team. Big teams are encouraged so we can get everybody riding their bikes!
