Shasta Bike Challenge, May 1-31

Registration is now open for the Shasta Bike Challenge starting May 1st  through May 31st. All participants are entered into a free drawing for great prizes each day they ride their bicycle to work, on errands, for exercise, or wherever they may want to go (up to 31 entries)!

Participants can register as an individual or join a team or workplace for the local challenge. All participants that live-in Shasta County will help our community rank up in miles and points for the National Bike Challenge where we compete against many other communities across the Nation.
