National Bike Challenge

Just a few things on the National Bike Challenge.  The Challenge begins May 1st and goed through September 30th.  Click here for the FAQ.  The main thing is you ride your bike.  Try to ride everyday.  It doesn't matter if you ride one mile or 20 or 50 in a day.  Just ride.  Keep track of your mileage.  The easiest way is to jot it down.  You'll bascially know how many miles it is to most places you go such as work, grocery store, wherever.  You can choose to use Endomondo, Strava, Garmin… but those all suck the power out of your phone or device because of the GPS.  (This is anecdotal since I don't use a phone).  You have until the last day of the month to enter your mileage for that month.  I try to enter mine at least weekly so I don't forget and then the 1st rolls around and you can't enter your mileage.  

To enter your mileage, go to the home page for NBC and click on the middle flag to log your miles.  

We've since added a Local Challenge to make it easier to check your ranking.  Click in Local Challenge then Leaderboard then Rider/Team/COmmunity etc.  So far our team is doing great!  Keep it up!

Thanks for joining the team.  There's an African proverb that says "If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far, go together."  So we'll all go together.
