What is the Bike Everywhere Challenge?

The Bike Everywhere Challenge is a fun and free competition to encourage your friends and colleagues to experience firsthand the joys and benefits of riding a bike. There are lots of fantastic prizes being offered to tempt your team, which we'll announce as the Challenge approaches!

How it works

  • You and your friends compete against other teams of up to 10 people
    • Full teams of 10 must have 2 "new riders." You can have a team of 8 existing riders but to have the full 10, you need new riders*
  • The aim is to earn the most points.
  • Points are earned by:
    • riding
    • and getting other people to ride too.
  • You can ride anywhere, anytime between May 1-31 to take part.

The Challenge is not just about who can ride the most miles, but who can encourage the most people to give bicycling a try.

*New riders are those of us who haven't ridden or only ridden a few times in the past year

Points

You and your team earn points as follows:

We also have bonus points:

  • New riders - DOUBLE day and mile points (Because we want to get more people riding!)

*New riders are those of us who haven't ridden or only ridden a few times in the past year

You earn points by riding and encouraging others to ride as per above.

Every 50 points you personally earn is another entry into the prize draw.

The more points you earn... the more chances you have of winning some great prizes!

Team Points

Your team earns points for all the people you get to join your team and all the riding you all do.
