Bike More Challenge


The Bike More Challenge is a month-long, friendly competition between friends and co-workers aimed at inspiring more people to get out of their cars and onto the saddle. Here’s how it works: Participants get together in teams and, beginning on May 1, report how many miles they rode for chances to win awesome prizes. Every ride counts, so whether you bike to work, to the grocery stone, or just for fun, make sure to log all your trips at BikeMoreChallenge.com.

Last year, more than 12,000 people throughout Oregon participated in the Bike More Challenge, logging a total of more than 1.7 million miles. Together, we can beat this record: Sign your workplace up today!

Log your bike trips during the month of May. At the end of the month, The Street Trust tallies the bike trips and ranks teams in size categories by the percentage of commutes achieved by bike. In early June, The Street Trust announces the winning teams in each category at the Challenge Awards Party.

Commute Clinics

In preparation for the Challenge, or just to promote bike commuting in your workplace, The Street Trust also conducts Bike Commute Clinics.

The Street Trust will come to your workplace or community group to teach a one-hour workshop covering laws, skills, basic gear, and basic maintenance. This is a great introductory workshop for people who are new to bicycling or interested in learning more about how to enjoy safe and comfortable bike commuting in all seasons. Experienced commuters are encouraged to come and share their tips with fellow riders and hopefully walk away with new knowledge as well.

Topics covered at the workshop include:

  • Basics of riding – laws, traffic signals and signs, how to handle bike lanes, bike boxes, tracks, and sidewalks
  • Skills – hand signals, turning, sharing the lane, and changing lanes
  • Choosing gear – bikes, helmets, lights, locks, accessories, cold and rain gear, carrying kids and cargo
  • Route planning – resources and taking bicycles on transit
  • Q&A – answers to questions from new or experienced riders

We also host seasonal workshops with a special focus on gear options and riding skills for being safe and comfortable riding at night, in the rain, and in other fall and winter conditions. More information here.
