2017 National Bike Challenge

posted Apr 25, 2017, 6:23 PM by Lindy King

As a past National Bike Challenge participant, we are excited to share the new and improved 2017 National Bike Challenge site is now open and ready for you! The all-new National Bike Challenge is built for everyone, from avid road bikers to commuters to "once-in-awhile-for-fun" riders. Ride with us anywhere, anytime May 1 through September 30. Hosted by the League of American Bicyclists and with the generous support of 3M, our goal is to provide you with a free and fun Challenge experience for years to come.

A major change this year is the use of a single tracking platform (Strava) to log your rides. We are using Strava to support bicycle advocacy organizations and cities in their efforts to make biking safer in your community by understanding where we all ride. Track with your smartphone or GPS device, or manually log rides online using Strava. Prefer another fitness tracker? Not a problem! Tapiriik (recommended for Endomondo) and FitnessSyncer (great for Map My Ride) can sync your rides to Strava.

We have over 70 prizes to give away each month, including bicycle gear and the ever-popular year’s supply of TP!

To register for the Challenge, follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to
  2. Select “Connect with Strava” to create or login to your Strava account
  3. Log your rides with Strava or your favorite app and you are good to go!

Welcome back to the National Bike Challenge. We look forward to riding with you again!
