WHAT IS THE BIKE MORE CHALLENGE?
The Bike More Challenge is a fun, free competition to encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to experience first hand joys and benefits of riding a bike. There are lots of fantastic prizes to tempt your team, which we'll announce as the Challenge approaches. Show off your #bikemore pride with these awesome merch items!
HOW IT WORKS
Businesses compete against each other to see who can get the most staff to ride a bike and log their trips between May 1-31. For 2016 we're using a simple points model to allow workplaces to compete with each other across their size category (see the points system below). The points system has been carefully selected to ensure a fair and exciting competition, and to strongly encourage workplaces to engage new riders if they want to climb the leaderboard and secure victory!
It’s not just about who can ride the most miles, but also who can encourage the most people to give bicycling a try. Of course, if you log more miles and more trips you'll earn more points (and have a shot at some special individual prizes), but the fastest way to earn more points is to encourage more people to get on a bike and ride!
To get Lloyd folks ready for the Challenge, Go Lloyd is hosting several fun events throughout the month. The first 2 are on May 2nd!
1. Bike Breakfast-- May 2nd 7-9am
You biked in and you need to refuel. Coffee and bagels are on us! Meet at NE 9th and Multnomah at the Lloyd Center Plaza in front of Standford's at 7:00 AM.
2. Bike More Party Group Bike Ride --5pm
Join Go Lloyd folks on a short group ride to the Bike More Challenge Kick-off Party at the Hollywood Bike Gallery 5329 NE Sandy Blvd.
The BTA will have FREE delicious Hopworks beer for anyone registered for the Challenge. And we will be raffling off a Bike Tune Up to attendees courtesy of Bike Gallery (each attendee gets one entry into the raffle). Last but not least, our pals at Bike Gallery will also be offering a 15% discount for all BTA Members and Challenge participants during the party (excludes bikes and already discounted items).
