The National Bike Challenge is a nationwide event 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. We aim to unite 50,000 riders to pedal 30 million miles from May 1, 2014 until September 30, 2014. The challenge is free to all.
We are forming another cycling team to participate in the National Bike Challenge this summer. The name of the team is “NEW Skiers”. Membership is intended for those of us that participate in Gelandesprung Ski or Sly Fox Ski and Snowboard Clubs. Family and supporters would be welcome as well.
Last year our team logged more than 11,000 miles and 13,000 points. Gladys Hansen (Sly Fox) finished in first place from our clubs last summer with nearly 4,000 points by consistently riding her bike to work and back, about four miles per trip. Just as last year, 20 points are awarded each day that you ride 1 mile or more. Add 1 point per mile you ride (i.e. 5 mile ride gets 25 points). There is a prize program that you can read about along with lots of other information on the https://nationalbikechallenge.org/ web page. But I ride for fun and enjoy the camaraderie of the challenge.
Sign-up is easy on the new web-site. I suggest that you try it. You’ll like it. This document will help you with the signup process. You can call me for help if you run into problems (920) 465-9194.
