*WE PASSED 25,000 MILES! *All right you guys! We’re closing in on 26,000 for Love to Ride’s May-Sept Biking Challenge! We’re over 1,500 trips cycled!
Love to Ride is also doing a September challenge, but we’ve got only 8 riders signed up for that. We’ve got 21 riders for the May-September challenge, so if you want to be included in the September challenge get out there and get riding!
Any latecomers want to join? It’s pretty easy. Check out the link below.
If you already use one of the below apps, you can connect them so that your rides are automatically updated (and your past rides will be counted). You can also enter your miles manually. Whatever your flavor, if you are a Fairbanks cyclist, we would love for you to be a part of our group!
