May is Bike Month - Join the LoveToRide Bike Challenge

May is Bike Month and this year we’re joining a fun challenge to get more people on bikes and spread the joys of biking. Check if your workplace participates. Any size company and number of employees can participate. If they don't, you're invited to join Sun Prairie Moves on Love to Ride. Check it out and join here: https://www.lovetoride.net/usa/groups/2550?group_invite=true

There’s never been a better time to enjoy riding a bike! It’s a good way to ensure you are getting enough daily exercise as well as an easy and safe way to travel from A to B while avoiding traffic. Riding a bike can help:

🧠 Boost your mental health, helping to make you feel happier and more connected to your surroundings and less prone to depression than other forms of transportation

🧡 Reduce stress and anxiety - any form of physical activity is good for reducing stress. Biking can help take your mind off problems and give you a chance to think about things calmly

🌳 Make an impact on your environment – reduce your carbon footprint by keeping the car at home

For the Bike Month Challenge it doesn't matter if you ride every day or if you haven't been on a bike in years. You only have to ride for ten minutes to take part. We’ll be starting some friendly competition with other local organizations. There are some great prizes to win too! So how does it work?

  • Register for free at lovetoride.net/usa
  • Start logging your bike rides to earn riding points.
  • To score big and climb the leader boards, earn encourager points. Encourage your friends and family (not just co-workers) to register and log a ride. If they add you as their encourager, you’ll score 50 or 100 points.
  • More points mean more chances to climb the leader boards and win prizes!
