The goal of re:TH!NK's Drive Your Bike campaign is to make biking more likely to happen. Using active transportation, like biking (or walking) is good for your physical and mental health, and is also good for the planet!
Getting from "point A to point B" by bike is a transportation option you can choose. Whether it be to work, to the store, to the library or to the park, making a trip by bike can be easier than you think.
There are several events happening in May to kick off the unofficial bicycling season!
Fox Valley Bike Challenge
Join the Fox Cities Cycling Association and re:TH!NK by signing up for the Fox Valley Bike Challenge. Its free and easy for all ages and you can ride anywhere – down the street, to work, to school, to the store! Use the STRAVA app to track your miles with your smartphone or log them online. While the challenge period only runs from May-September, anyone can log miles on the National Bike Challenge website or using the smartphone app any time during the year!
Check out some great bike riding events planned for the Fox Valley Bike Challenge, and all year long, on Facebook.
Ride as part of a challenge, a workplace or school, and/or part of a team. The more people out riding the better it is for everyone!
