Shasta Bike Challenge Celebration, June 7

The 2019 Shasta Bike Challenge was another year for the record books. With the local challenge lasting the entire month of May, 786 local riders pedaled out enough miles to cross the United States over 40 times…that’s 115,928 miles… Shasta County was ranked #2 Nationally at the end of May for its population size, and 4th overall in the National Bike Challenge, beating out much larger communities. Shasta County was the 3rd largest participant in the National Bike Challenge during bike month.

With 51 teams participating in the Shasta Bike Challenge, competition was high as miles poured in each day. Workplaces, Schools, and other teams competed against each other for distance points, day points, and encourager points. The final results including the winning teams will be announced Friday, June 7th at the Shasta Bike Challenge Celebration at Chain Gang Bike Shop starting at 4:30 p.m. This social event will celebrate the teams and individuals who participated in our local bike challenge where prizes will be randomly drawn and handed out to those who logged trips. We will also honor the organizations, volunteers, and sponsors who made everything possible. The celebration will include music, food trucks, drinks, free corn hole tournament, Chain Gang rocks, lighted bike ride through downtown, and more! The Bicycle Friendly Business Award will also be presented in conjunction with the Redding Chamber of Commerce. All attendees will be entered into a huge door prize giveaway valued at over $500 (see image below). We will also be handing out over 50 prizes to our lucky participants. Everyone is welcome to join in this free celebration. More information can be found at www.ShastaBikeChallenge.org.
