The 2012 National Bike Challenge was definitely an important point of discussion at last week’s National Bike Summit and a new opportunity to encourage cycling this year. The National Bike Challenge runs from May 1 – August 31, 2012, and seeks to encourage 50,000 people to ride 10 million miles. The challenge is made possible with support from The League of American Bicyclists, Bikes Belong, Endomondo, and Kimberly Clark. If you already use your bike for health, transportation, and more, all you need to do is join, ride, and log your information. You can also use it as a way to incentivize others to ride with the cool prizes available each month. Check it out and learn more in the video below.
