The SouthCoast Bikeway Alliance (an Alliance of all South Coast Friends of Bike Paths) is announcing the First Annual South Coast Summer Bike Challenge. Do you enjoy bicycling? Would you like to start a mid-year fitness resolution? If so, join forces with others in your community in a Summer Bike Challenge. During the next three months – July, August and September – communities will compete against each other to log the most miles collectively on their bicycles. All you need to do is 1) Ride your bike whenever and wherever; 2) Log your miles online at the National Bike Challenge; and 3) Win big for your health and your community. Your online account shows you how many miles you have ridden, and you can compete with your friends. It’s amazing how it all adds up. The winning community will have bragging rights and a trophy to display prominently in their city or town, until we do it next year. “Prizes” will be awarded at the conclusion of the event, with awards to: a) The Community that logs the most miles (per 1,000 residents); b) Individual leader – Male and Female; c) Senior leader – Male and Female over 65; d) Teen Leader – Male and Female; and e) Child Leader – 12 and under Male and Female.
