In May, we're challenging you to commute one day a week by bike or to take a bike ride before your workday starts once a week to simulate a bike commute. Everyone who "commutes" by bike one day a week and logs their trips on the MassBike Love to Ride Group will be entered to win some MassBike prizes. By joining Love to Ride and logging your trips in May, you will also be eligible to win prizes from the National Bike Challenge.
Join the May Challenge:
- Join the MassBike Group on Love to Ride
- Take one "commute" by bike each week in May
- Log your trips on Love to Ride & mark them as "transport to or from work"
If you participated in our April Challenge on Love to Ride, you will be automatically entered for our May Challenge once you log a commute trip in May. Just make sure to tag your commuting trips as "transport to or from work" in Love to Ride.
We'd love to see photos from your bike commutes, make sure to tag us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and let us know about your rides. This is part of our monthly ride challenge series leading up to Bay State Bike Month in September.
Using Strava with Love to Ride
If you use Strava, connect your Strava account in your Love to Ride profile to automatically log your ride. In your profile, you can find the info connect your Strava by clicking "Click here to log rides automatically!"
Then click on the Strava icon to be guided through connecting your account to Love to Ride.
Once connected, just double-check after your first few rides to make sure they’re uploading properly. Make sure that your commuting trips are logged as commutes on Love to Ride, if they are logged as commutes on Strava that will transfer over to Love to Ride. We'd also love for you to join our MassBike Strava Club, but all rides must be logged on Love to Ride to be eligible to win May Bike Challenge prizes.
