The Winter Bike Challenge encourages intrepid cyclists to brave the winter elements and ride their bikes for two weeks in January. This year 470 cyclists hopped on two wheels Jan. 13-25, pedaling 33,137 miles in 4,362 trips. Participants won prizes such as free coffee, bike locks, Clif bars and bike tires.
