What is it?

The Humboldt Bike Challenge is a fun, free community event that runs May 1st through 31st throughout Humboldt county. You are invited to ride a bike anywhere, anytime, and gain points as an individual, or join/create a team. Ride your bike, log the miles, gain points, climb leaderboards, earn badges, and win prizes! Last year we achieved a 30,000 mile goal for biking in Humboldt in May. This year we are hoping for 35,000 miles. With your help, we can do this!

This year the Humboldt Bike Challenge is encouraging workplaces to take part by having a points-driven challenge where workplaces compete against other workplaces in their size category.

How to Earn Points in the Workplace Challenge

You earn points in the workplace challenge by:

  • Riding; and
  • Encouraging others to ride.

Every day you ride you earn 10 points PLUS 1 point for each mile ridden. You can also gain points for encouraging new riders to join the Humboldt Bike Challenge. Here’s a table to break it down:

Individual and Team Challenges

The Individual and Team challenges are also running this year.

Individual rankings:

Individuals can see how they stack up against other riders in trips, commutes and miles ridden. There is also a leaderboard for the number of people encouraged to ride by an individual. See individual rankings here.

Team rankings:

Teams can be any size this year! At the end of the challenge they will be ranked according to points from miles ridden and points attained from daily riding of each member, and the encourager points.  The winner of the team challenge will be the one with the highest number of points from all areas.  Want to know how your team is doing? See team leaderboards here. At the end of the challenge we will post the final results tally and declare the winning team!
