Not as good as the "Beer and Bike Challenge" through out the year.

Great idea, signed up and ready to get Nevada off the bottom of the list.

Hey Daspydyr, Welcome to the Challenge. The pre-season has already started and since the state rankings are per capita, with 2.7 million people in Nevada it won't take too many miles for you guys to begin moving up. If you want anymore info on the Challenge, you can check out this YouTube video http://youtu.be/Ogup1v9cnzs or just ask me any questions. This was piloted in Wisconsin last year and the stretch goal of 1 million miles was surpassed with 4500 riders. Good luck!

Odd question from someone in Wisconsin...

Why does the link redirect to some social media site? Why hide that from us?

Hi Seattle Forest, Good question. The Challenge sponsors thought the url www.nationalbikechallenge.org was easier to remember than www.endomondo.com/campaign/national , but you do raise a good point about the redirect to Endomondo. They are also a partner in the National Bike Challenge, for more information on the Challenge, you can view a short YouTube video at http://youtu.be/Ogup1v9cnzs. Thanks for your question and let me know if you have any other comments or questions.

Okay, who else in my area is doing this? I'm looking to join or start a team.
