Last year Pittsburgh rallied 1,515 riders to pedal 738,000 miles to victory against Cleveland in the Rust Belt Battle of the Bikes. This year we’re going to register 1,750 riders, pedal 800,000 miles AND keep the Rust Belt Champion Trophy on our turf. Join the free 2014 National Bike Challenge today.
The National Bike Challenge is a fun, friendly, free challenge that encourages Pittsburghers to get out and ride bikes. For whatever reason you choose to ride — whether its for fun, to commute, to stay healthy, or to save money and emissions — the National Bike Challenge is a great reason to be on a bike, showing that Pittsburgh’s bikers are powerful.
Riding in the National Bike Challenge is advocacy! Be counted as a Pittsburgh biker. Show that our numbers are strong.
Then of course, the third best reason to ride in the National Bike Challenge is Over the Bar Bicycle Cafe’s Pedal for Pints n’Pop Program. For each medal you earn in the challenge, you can present your Pedal for Pints Card for a free pint of soda or suds*. In years past, this program has been our city’s secret weapon to keep our riders hydrated and motivated — a great excuse to huddle for a game plan with your team.
Join the National Bike Challenge today and pedal for Pittsburgh. Ride solo, with a team, or with your workplace. Challenge other teams and workplaces. See how you stand against other riders locally, state-wide, and nationally. The National Bike Challenge is a free, fun, friendly competition that runs from May 1 to Sept. 30.
