Now more than ever is the time to rethink what will become the new normal as our cities and towns begin to recover. Bicycling may be just what we need. It’s an excellent way to exercise and strengthen the immune system, boosts mental health, and can help us maintain physical distance while traveling to free up space on public transportation. Plus, it’s fun!
To help unlock the many benefits of the bicycle, Love to Ride Central Southwest (CSW) is running a friendly competition to get more people riding bikes. Cycle September – The Global Bike Challenge, as the name suggests, runs throughout the month of September. Individuals and their workplaces will compete worldwide to see which can earn the most points by riding and encouraging others to do the same. It doesn’t matter if you ride every day or if you haven’t been on a bike in years. Everyone is invited to take part and help get more people on bikes.
You can take part in Cycle September by following 3 easy steps:
- Register at lovetoride.net/csw
- Join your company or invite your workplace to register
- Log rides manually in September or connect your favourite bicycling app (Strava, MapMyRide or Endomondo). Your rides will be recorded automatically and will sync your last 30 days of riding!
Love to Ride enables members to set goals, track distance, earn badges, share photos and stories and encourage others to ride, as well as allowing workplaces to incentivize their staff to ride and monitor bicycling participation at their offices.
The aim of Cycle September is to help more people to enjoy the fun and freedom of bicycling and to access the support they need to ride for transportation.
