National Bike Challenge runs May – September

Hands on bicycle handlebars

CSU Parking and Transportation Services encourages faculty, staff and students to join the National Bike Challenge. The National Bike Challenge is a nationwide event uniting thousands of current bicyclists and engaging countless new riders. It is a free and easy way to challenge yourself, your colleagues and your community to ride more while competing on a local, state and national level.

Participants can register as an individual, create a club or group, or join an existing club or group here at CSU.

Why take part?

  • Achieve cycling goals. Use the challenge as motivation to enjoy riding more. Set goals, earn badges, cheer each other on, enjoy some friendly rivalry with friends, neighbors, and colleagues
  • You want a bike friendly world. Show your support for biking and a healthier, happier world
  • Win prizes by participating
  • Compete on leaderboards. If a little friendly competition gets your motor-running and legs-cranking, then we have a host of leaderboards for you to enjoy
  • Enjoy building community. Connect with your friends, co-workers and fellow riders. Share your stories and your photos and encourage each other to enjoy riding
  • Let’s get more people riding and smiling. Your participation helps to show how many people ride, and you can also encourage non-riding friends and co-workers to get back on a bike. More people riding helps to get biking infrastructure built and helps our communities become more bike friendly
