Bay State Bike Month has arrived and all September long advocates across Massachusetts are hosting events to celebrate bicycling. To find a bikey event near you, you can head to the Bay State Bike Month Website to check out the Events Calendar. In addition to in-person events, MassBike is hosting a series of bicycle challenges to encourage riders to find their bike joy and ride their bike for a chance to win prizes.
Carry It With You Challenge
Bicycles are a great form of recreation, transportation, and a sustainable, self-powered way to haul stuff around town. Whether you’ve loaded up panniers, made use of a rack, or found another inventive way to carry something by bike- we want to know about it for our Carry It With You Challenge!
This challenge runs from September 1st to September 11th and one lucky winner will receive a basket from Nantucket Bike Basket Co.
How to Join the Challenge:
- Take a ride where you carry something on your bicycle & snap a pic of your carrying set up
- Share your story about what you carried with you by bike with us! Either post your photo and story on social media and tag @MassBike or email your photo and story to [email protected]
MassCommute Bicycle Challenge - September 19th-26th
Back in its 27th year, MCBC is the signature event of Bay State Bike Month. The challenge promotes and encourages logging bicycle miles and trips through friendly competition between individuals, organizations, and teams. Get ready by logging your bicycling trips as part of the MassBike Love to Ride Group or your Transportation Management Association (TMA)'s trip logging platform. Once MCBC starts, all bicycle trips you log will enter you for a chance to win some great prizes.
