Intercity Transit’s Winter Bicycle Challenge encourages all Thurston County Residents to bike for any reason in any season! To adapt to evolving circumstances, we’ve expanded our bike challenges to include all kinds of bike rides, and made them even friendlier for the whole family. Bicycling outdoors remains a great way to get the benefits of fresh air, sunlight, and exercise, all of which are necessary for the health of our bodies, minds and spirits. The Winter Bicycle Challenge offers activities and prizes to make it even more of a fun adventure to get out and ride!
For the month of February, we’ll have a scavenger hunt, a photo challenge, and awesome prize drawings each week, plus a bonus drawing at the end of the month for everyone who logs rides on 10 days or more in February. Tag your photos with #WinterBCC or @BicycleCommuterChallenge on Instagram to join the photo challenge. The teams features will be active, and teams can compete for bragging rights.The Winter Bicycle Challenge is for Thurston County residents biking for any reason this year in February.
To participate, create an account on this website (or log in to your existing one) and enter the miles you ride each day in February, 2022.
Winter poses more challenges and risks for biking than other seasons. We don't recommend biking when there is snow or icy conditions on our local roads. That is a great time to ride the bus! Make sure you're prepared and don't exceed your capabilities. For some tips on successful biking in winter, see: https://bcc.intercitytransit.com/news/winter-bike-commuting-tips
