Love to Ride May Bike Month Challenge

The Madison May Bike Month Challenge will take place through Love to Ride Madison. Whether you ride for fun, exercise, or to commute (or all of these!), you can log miles biked from May 1 – 31.

You can earn points for days ridden, distance (miles) logged, and encouraged riders. Awarded points will make you eligible for daily, weekly, and overall challenge giveaways. More points are awarded for frequency versus distance, so even if you don’t ride very far, a short ride a few times a week will make you eligible for some cool prizes.

What to do:

  • Register for the challenge
  • Ride your bike, anywhere and anytime! (Ride 10+ minutes)
  • Log your miles with Love to Ride – manually input or via linked app (ex. Strava, MapMyFitness)
  • Enter yourself to win prize drawings

Learn more about how the challenge and points work on the Love to Ride website.

Part of a work unit or club/group? Search for your workplace and/or club/group and join to help compete against others. Don’t see your workplace or group? Create one! These collections are available year-round so you can continue the fun after May.

Be sure to encourage friends, family, and colleagues to join! You’ll get “encourager” points if someone mentions your name after logging a few rides.
