What is the Bike More Challenge?

The Bike More Challenge is a fun, free competition to encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to experience first hand joys and benefits of riding a bike. There are lots of fantastic prizes to tempt your team, which we'll announce as the Challenge approaches. Show off your #bikemore pride with these awesome merch items!

How it works

Businesses compete against each other to see who can get the most staff to ride a bike and log their trips between May 1-31. We use a simple points model to allow workplaces to compete with each other across their size category (see the points system below). The points system has been carefully selected to ensure a fair and exciting competition, and to strongly encourage workplaces to engage new riders if they want to climb the leaderboard and secure victory!

It’s not just about who can ride the most miles, but also who can encourage the most people to give bicycling a try. Of course, if you log more miles and more trips you'll earn more points (and have a shot at some special individual prizes), but the fastest way to earn more points is to encourage more people to get on a bike and ride!



For example, if you are new to bicycling and your friend Jane encourages you to bike you will earn 20 points each day you ride PLUS 1 point for each mile you ride. And Jane will earn 200 points for being the one to encourage you to ride!

What are the benefits to your organization?

  • Free for all employees
  • A fun activity for your whole team
  • A friendly competition between staff teams and other local organizations
  • Generate community benefits (environmental, health, congestion, etc.)
  • Prize incentives including bike gear and more!

How to take part

Follow these four steps:

  • Register on this website
  • Ride a bike anywhere, anytime from May 1-31
  • Record your ride here (or by using an app!) and tell your friends and coworkers about the Challenge
  • Reward yourself and your friends by winning prizes!

Team Sizes

Organizations and departments will compete against those of a similar size for a fair chance of winning. There are six size categories: 500+ staff, 200-499 staff, 50-199 staff, 20-49 staff, 7-19 staff, and 3-6 staff.

Your participation will count towards your department's and your organization's score - the more staff that participate in the challenge, the more points your team earns!

Don't have a bike?

You can always borrow a bike from a friend or rent one from a local bike shop. BIKETOWN is also an option.
