#MakeEveryRideCount this May with the Bike Month Challenge

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

This May, join the movement to create safer, more bike-friendly streets with the Bike Month Challenge and #MakeEveryRideCount!

Bike month challenge

Download the app, track your rides and biking accomplishments, and provide feedback on your bike trips using the simple and fun Rate My Routes feature.

There are prizes to be won and everyone is invited to take part - from regular riders to people who haven’t been on a bike in years (or ever).

HOW THE BIKE MONTH CHALLENGE WORKS

Download Love to Ride and use Rate My Routes to provide a comfort rating for sections of your ride! Your anonymous feedback can help create better bike infrastructure.

Every ride earns points. More points = more chances to win prizes like £2,000! Encourage others to join in and earn up to 100 extra points.

Ride anywhere, any time! Whether it’s to work, to the store, or a spin around the park, every ride paints a picture of what biking is like in your community.

There’s fun competition for workplaces, schools and universities, too. Ride together to top the leaderboards and have a great time!
