The National Bike challenge has been around for more than 5 years. I love tracking my rides on maps, and measuring myself against other riders, in my area, business or team.

This year they are partnering with a new vendor, STRAVA. You can also win prizes from 3M and others for riding during the National Bike Challenge. This challenge is good info for all of us to utilize to tell our representatives in government, in our businesses and in our neighborhoods that cycling is indeed a great activity for transportation and recreation.
