Turn a common barrier to biking — inclement weather — on its head and celebrate biking during the rainiest month of the year.

From Washington Bikes: 

Washington Bikes invites seasoned pedalers, new bike riders, and cyclists from all over our state to bike as much as possible for any reason during November 1-30.  It's a fun and free competition to encourage your friends and colleagues to experience firsthand the joys and benefits of riding a bike everywhere and any time, rain or shine! 

How it works

  • You and your friends compete against other teams of up to 10 people
    • New riders get double points for trips logged. Following rider feedback from past years, we have removed the requirement to have 2 new riders on a team of 10. Your Challenge team can be made up of anyone you wish, but just remember, more new riders = more points
  • The aim is to earn the most points.
  • Points are earned by:
    • riding
    • and getting other people to ride too.
  • You can ride anywhere, anytime between November 1-30 to take part.

The Challenge is not just about who can ride the most miles, but who can encourage the most people to give bicycling a try.

What are the benefits of participating?

  • Free for everyone
  • Loads of pedal powered camaraderie
  • The spirit of friendly competition
  • Help reduce congestion, emissions, and save people money
  •  Bragging rights. Period.
