What is the Shasta Bike Challenge?

The Shasta Bike Challenge is a collaborative effort of the bicycling community to engage new, old, and current cyclist to ride as much as they can whether it is for transportation or just for fun! Participants are entered into a free drawing for great prizes each day they ride their bicycle to work, school, or wherever they may want to go!  This year's 2017 Challenge is from May 1st to 31st.  The more days participants ride, the more likely they will win a prize.

Our local Shasta Bike Challenge is housed within the National Bike Challenge platform where we are able to compete not only locally (Shasta County) but across the entire Nation. All participants will register on the National Bike Challenge which will by default place individuals into the our Local Challenge based on location.

Note: All data from previous year's on the National Bike Challenges (Teams, Participants, Stats) has been removed. All team captains will need to register as a new workplace, school, or team.
