The 2019 National Bike Challenge Starts May 1st
Written by Amy Copeland - May 2019
The National Bike Challenge is back again this year with an all new website. The National Bike Challenge is a nationwide event taking place May 1st to September 30th 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 all with an unlimited number of team mates!
In past years it was a point based contest. This year there are no points but instead leaderboards for most miles, most rides, most commuter miles and most commuter rides. I am happy to announce that Three Rivers Velo Sport will have a team for the challenge again this year and this year we will have an unlimited number of members and all ages may participate. We won our size division twice in past years and now we are looking to reclaim that top spot in mileage so this year let’s team up together to win it all! As in the past however, you MUST be a current 3RVS club member to be on the 3RVS NBC team. If you have never been a member or have forgotten to renew, now is a great time to get that detail taken care of.
Be sure to log your miles regularly. Some teams and individuals can get quite competitive, it is always good to know where you and the team stands against everyone else, and its best to not wait until the last minute. Even though the Challenge runs May 1st to September 30th, each month the NBC awards prizes but you have to log your miles to be in running. Each month they will randomly draw for prizes and email you if you win, and our team has had winners in previous years. It could be you!
This year you can manually log rides or link your NBC user info to Strava, Map My Ride, Endomondo or several others to have your ride data automatically entered into the National Bike Challenge/ Love to Ride contest site.
The web site for participation this year is https://www.lovetoride.net/usa/user_sessions/new?locale=en-US
Here is the link where you can both get yourself registered and join the 3RVS team now
