The League of American Bicyclists Launches Campaign to Reach 1 Million Miles of Bike Trips

Back in May, the League of American Bicyclists and our partners at Love to Ride kicked off the National Bike Challenge. We asked you to rack up the miles and go for a ride, bike, pedal, cycle—well, you get the idea.

Now, we have a new challenge for you! Starting tomorrow, we’re asking you to put down the car keys and put on a helmet to take part in our “Drive Less, Bike More” campaign. Make your next trip to the coffee shop, convenience store, or corner market by bike and join tens of thousands of others in making 1 million bike trips for transportation by the end of 2021.

Sign up to “Drive Less, Bike More”

In the United States, nearly 50 percent of trips taken by car are less than three miles long. That’s about a 20-minute bike ride! Help us show that more trips are “bike possible” this fall by logging your miles with the League and Love to Ride.

Already, people like you have logged more than 200,000 miles of bike trips for transportation since we began the National Bike Challenge in May. Be part of getting us to the 1 million mile mark with any type of bike trip for transportation: from commuting to work or school, running errands around town, getting coffee with a friend, and even picking up groceries. Trips like these are often shorter—and more fun—by bike.

Here’s How You Join:

  • Sign up through Love to Ride. (Already signed up? Then make sure you’re logging your trips!)
  • Complete a survey on your current transportation habits.
  • Begin logging bike rides!

It’s that easy! On the Love to Ride platform, you can earn badges for bike trips, connect with others, and see how you’re contributing to our 1 million mile goal. As you log rides, either manually or by connecting an app like Strava, be sure to mark your transportation trips in Love to Ride to earn credit and potentially win prizes!
