2-Mile Commuter Challenge

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.

Give it a try!  For the entire month of April, you can log your trips traveled by bike and be entered to win a variety of prizes including gift certificates to your favorite restaurants, bicycle gear, and more.  The grand prize will be a LINUS bike, complete with rear rack to make it perfect for just about any type of errand or for simply gliding around town.

The 2014 Two-Mile Commuter Challenge has come to a close.  (Winners: please see directions at the bottom of this page for information about how to claim your prize.)

3750 trips by bike were generated this April by 186 participants!
