Every year, as part of Bike Fest, we host a 2-Mile Commuter Challenge as a pat on the back to everyone who uses their bicycle for transportation during the month of April. Did you know that roughly half of all household trips in the U.S. are 2 miles or under? It’s true, and these types of trips are totally doable by bike.
The Challenge is simple. You simply use your bike for daily errands, log your trips, and get entered to win prizes. On top of that, just think of how good you’ll feel — you’ll save money, get exercise, and have time to enjoy spring weather in Tucson each and every day.
Last year, 458 people participated in the 2-Mile commuter Challenge. Together, they logged 7,155 trips by bike!
Prizes included two brand-new Linus bikes, panniers, bike lights and bells, gift-cards to local bike shops, and more. We’ve got even more prizes lined up for the 2014 Challenge! Sign up for the mailing list and we’ll send you an announcement when the 2014 Challenge starts.
