2013 National Bike Challenge

I did this last year with 32,000 of my closest friends and we rode a total of 12 million miles. The 2013 warm-up period began last week in prep for the official May 1 official start. You can join this free challenge at https://nationalbikechallenge.org. It was fun and motivated me to ride more than I ever did.

Oh look, I'm #1 on the warm up period, but there are only 350 signed up so far, so this won't last.
