Earth Month Bike Challenge
The 2017 Earth Month Bike Challenge will take place from April 10-30 for three weeks. You can participate in the Earth Month Bike Challenge by registering for the individual challenge and/or team challenge. By registering and logging your rides weekly, you can win prizes for being a consistent rider, the most encouraging rider, or even submitting a photo for the photo contest.
The challenge is intended to encourage riding and show that it is a fun and healthy way to get around town. In addition, it is good for the environment and it is a way to reduce your carbon emissions. During the Winter Warrior Bike Challenge, an estimated 3.4 U.S. tons of CO2 was saved if all of the miles were spent biking. Biking helps reduce the carbon impact of transportation, one of the University of Iowa's 2020 Vision sustainability goals.
