Why Move More Challenge 2021?
The Move More Challenge, formerly called the Bike More Challenge, is on now and lasts all summer long. Registration is now open! Create a team or participate as an individual, logging sustainable active transportation trips. This year’s event won’t be limited to people commuting by bike or to workplaces. You’ll be able to track your lunchtime walks as a telecommuter, log trips on transit and by scooter, form a team with your book club or neighbors, and even count your Pedalpalooza and other social rides happening all summer long. This year, every trip counts! The Move More Challenge is open to everyone in Oregon, and we see it as a means to encourage a multimodal transportation system that contributes to equity in access, opportunity, health, and prosperity for people and communities across the Portland Metro Region and beyond. Join our mailing list for the latest Move More Challenge updates. Read the Move More Challenge FAQ for help getting started.
Captains are the heart of the Challenge, inspiring and motivating their teams to log those trips and vie for prizes. Anyone can be a Team Captain, even if you’ve never participated in the Challenge before! It’s OK if you don’t even have a team in mind yet -just sign up, and we’ll help you with recruitment ideas! In addition to inspiring and motivating the masses, Team Captains are eligible for extra prizes throughout the Challenge, and as soon as it’s safe to do so we’ll have a Team Captain party! In the meantime, we’ll host virtual Team Captain training sessions and get-togethers.

About The Street Trust
The Street Trust envisions a complete, safe, low-carbon, multimodal transportation system that contributes to equity in access, opportunity, health, and prosperity for people and communities across the Portland Metro Region and beyond. We are ready to win sustainable transportation that saves lives, reduces barriers, and expands opportunities to the people and neighborhoods our current system neglects. The Move More Challenge is centered in this vision.
In 2019–the last pre-COVID year of the challenge–more than 11,000 people logged 200,000 trips and traveled 1.5 million miles. Together, we eliminated 300,000 pounds of CO2 emissions to create a healthier community for everyone. Can we move more and travel farther as a community in 2021?
