Kick off National Bike Month this May with a friendly competition between your friends, family, and co-workers!
What: A competition to see who can log the most bike commutes.
Who: Individuals in Fayette County. New and seasoned commuters welcome!
Why: Because it is fun. Because it is good for you. Because it will save you money.
The Individual Commuter Challenge is open to anyone and everyone who commutes to work and runs errands by bicycle. Replace your car with a bike this May for a chance to win awesome prizes!
Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 individuals with the most “trips” and the person with the most miles ridden by bike. Recreation and fitness rides will not be counted–only trips that would have normally been made by car, like rides to and from work and running errands. There is a maximum of two ‘Work’ trips per day.
Follow these simple steps to get started:
Step 1: Create your login credentials on Greenlightride.com, please use your first and last name as your username.
Step 2: Once logged in, select the ‘Competition’ tab and the ‘All Competitions’ option. Scroll through Active Competitions and click “apply” to join the 2015 Bike Lexington Individual Commuter Challenge. You will have to join as a “team.” You’ll have the option to choose a team you’ve already created in the past or create a new one. You should be the only person on your team.
Step 3: Log your trips/miles beginning May 1 until 11:59pm, May 28! Click on the ‘Personal’ tab at the top of your account page, then select ‘Log Miles.’ All trips tagged as ‘transportation’ and ‘work’ will automatically record in the competition. Choose “round-trip” to count 2 trips.
Bike Lexington will post competition updates on this page at the end of each week so you know where you are in the standings. Winners will be announced after the Family Fun Ride on May 30. Prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third place with the most trips recorded and to the individual with the most miles ridden. Good luck and thanks for commuting! You will have an Inbox in your Greenlightride account; please check this each time you log miles for important messages from event organizers.
