Challenges

Bike More Challenge

Bike Commute ChallengeMay
In 2016 we gave the Challenge a new name and moved it to May! We challenge everyone across Oregon to get out of their cars and on their bikes to see who can #bikemore. We run a month-long friendly competition between teams to see who can get the greatest percentage of teammates to log the most miles on their bike. At the end we tally the results, give out awards in different categories, and celebrate everyone’s hard work and commitment for that month.

In early June, The Street Trust announces the winning teams in each category at a big After Party.

Walk+Roll Challenge

DSC02426May
The national percentage of kids biking or walking to school has declined since the 1970s, but in Portland, that number has risen from 28% in 2006 to 42% in 2012. The Walk+Roll Challenge is a friendly competition aimed at encouraging families to walk, bike, skate, scooter, etc., to school.

During the Challenge, school coordinators track the number of students walking and rolling to school throughout the month. At the end of the Challenge, prizes go to the schools that log the most biking trips, the most walking trips, the largest total number of students walking and biking, and the highest percentage of students walking and biking. The Street Trust will also hold weekly drawings for schools to win gift certificates and even more great prizes.

The Challenge is hosted by The Street Trust with support from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the City of Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), among others.
