May is bicycle month, and to kick it off, Cascade Bicycle Club is hosting the Commute Challenge!
Riders participate in the Commute Challenge for a variety of reasons. The challenge is great for new riders, providing the support and structure to make the transition to cycling smooth, easy and fun. Experienced cyclists often relish the competition that comes with tracking trips and the chance to convince coworkers to ride.
Participants can either ride solo or form a team. Teams are a great way to encourage brand new bike commuters while challenging experienced bike commuters.

The Commute Challenge also provides resources to help you, including bike maps, resources for learning about local and state bike and traffic laws, and tips for combining a bus ride with your cycling commute! If you're new to commuting on your bike, this is a great opportunity to learn skills and enjoy support.
