But there's another cool event running through the rest of the summer. The National Bike Challenge is a nationwide event uniting thousands of current bicyclists—and encouraging countless new riders. It is a free and easy way to challenge yourself, your colleagues and your community to ride more while competing on a local, state and national level.
They use an app called Strava to keep track of all the miles people ride. Currently, Lawrence is in second place in KS by just a hair to Witchita. You can help us over the edge.
The Challenge is a great way to get involved and bicycle more as individuals, companies, and communities, together as a nation. It's not just for hard-core riders, it's for recreational riders too, just get out there, log your miles and represent Douglas County!
