PeopleForBikes is announcing the fifth annual National Bike Challenge which starts on Sunday, May 1.

The Challenge will unite 100,000+ bicycle riders to pedal 75 million miles from May 1, 2016 until September 30, 2016.  It is an online platform, free for everyone to use to log their miles and celebrate riding, while finding inspiration to ride more often. The Challenge brings together tens of thousands of people who bike across the country who share a love of bicycling. 
Be part of The Chainlink team: 
You can automatically log miles on an app such as Strava or Map My Ride so you can easily sync it up so that it automatically updates their miles in the National Bike Challenge. When you log in, you just need to go to Manage Settings (left hand navigation bar) and scroll down to the Apps section to sync Strava.
This is super easy to be a part of it!
2. Ride your Bike!
3. Set up your auto logging of miles or enter your miles every day you ride.
4. Come back to this thread and post pics and your comments about the challenge.
5. Invite your friends to join us for the National Bike Challenge.

First week is going strong! 

Great job everyone! According to our page, we are ranked 39th overall and 8th for our our team size. We are also leading the local Elk Grove challenge by quite a bit. Our team is now 35 people and is continuing to grow. Thanks for joining Chainlink's team! If you haven't yet sent me your information for the t-shirt, please send me your t-shirt size, full name, and address to I may need to do another t-shirt order so it may be a few weeks until the t-shirts are ready. I'm also planning on doing some fun challenges for other swag e.g. water bottles, etc. Have a great weekend!!

First Swag Challenge!
Get those camera phones ready! Where is the challenge taking you? To work? Trader Joe's? A beautiful ride in the country? Fun rides with friends? Now's your chance to show us what you've been up to as you've been racking up those miles on your bike. Between now and May 22, post those ride photos to this thread.

Share your story, location, details with the photo too! I'll pick highlights to share in upcoming newsletters and winners will receive a Chainlink (Specialized) water bottle and be Internet famous. :-)

My Commute Home on a beautiful, summery Friday in Chicago. Rode from downtown Chicago back Home to beautiful Berwyn, IL via Route 66 (Ogden Ave). This photo was taken on the Home Stretch as I entered Berwyn. 

Nice! I didn't realize Route 66 goes through Berwyn.

For sure. The Mother Road is everywhere! :-)

A quick jaunt down the lakefront trail today, and there couldn't have been better weather!

I'm not proud to say that I also got my first flat of the season today, but I am proud I had a patch kit and was able to finish a nice little loop regardless. Beats sitting indoors!

Beautiful day. I love the way the skyline is peeking above the hill.

Here's some pics from my morning commute. The map photo isn't exactly where I'm at in the other photos, but that red line of brake lights was fun to pass for much of the lakefront path north of downtown. Always happy to not be driving in that queue.

Joined!  The team won't benefit much from my measly miles, but it sounds fun.  :)

Yay! All miles are welcome. We're happy to have you. 

Btw, Will is killing it with his miles! :-) 

So, I signed up last night and got impatient to see my miles from Strava, so I manually added them. This morning, I saw the miles I manually added plus the Strava miles.

I was wondering if you can remove the manual miles?

Oops! :-) I am not able to manage or view the accounts but when I had a question, this is the person that responded:

Could you please reach out to her and see if she can help you?
