What is the National Bike Challenge?
The National Bike Challenge (NBC) is a free, nationwide bicycle advocacy and wellness program that encourages people to bike for fitness, transportation, and recreation. Participants log the miles they bicycle and compete for prizes and awards in an online community. It’s fun, motivating, and a great way to support local and national bike advocacy efforts.
The NBC runs May 1- Sept. 30 with open enrollment throughout the challenge.
Ride anywhere, any distance, any frequency,
then make your rides count!
2019 Challenge Updates
Locally, we have elected not to host our local NBC challenge, the Simsbury Bike Challenge, to give our dedicated participants a break from this fun but sometimes intense competition. We will consider reopening the Simsbury Bike Challenge in 2020. In the meantime, local riders may participate in the 2019 NBC. Local results may still post on the NBC's Simsbury page.
Looking Back, Looking Ahead
Since 2015, Simsbury has logged over 300,000 miles in the NBC. In 2016 Simsbury Free Bike finished as the #1 advocacy group in the U.S. If you liked the SBC and want to see it return, please consider becoming a volunteer to help support this and other bike initiatives.
