The Tahoe Bike Challenge happens annually around Tahoe throughout June. It's a fun and free competition to encourage your friends and colleagues to experience firsthand the joys and benefits of riding a bike anywhere and any time. There are lots of fantastic prizes to tempt your team; check them out here!
The Challenge is not just about who can ride the most miles, but also who can encourage the most people to give bicycling a try.

You earn points by riding and encouraging** others to ride as per above.
The more points you earn... the bigger the bragging rights!
Your team earns points for all the people you get to join your team and all the riding you all do. That means you get a team total of everyone's day, distance, and encourager points**. It's that simple - just tally everyone's riding and encouraging together to see who is on top!
**How I do earn encourager points? It's easy! When someone logs a ride in the Challenge via the website, a little box will open that asks if someone encouraged them to ride. If they type in your name and select you from the list, you get points for encouraging them to ride! This box will open the first 3 trips you log 'manually' via the website, or it can be triggered for your next ride at any time via the 'add an encourager' button on your profile page.
