Bike Challenge gets people off the gas pedal

The Tahoe Bike Challenge, a friendly competition to see who can replace the most car trips with trips by bicycle, returns June 1-14.

Many of Tahoe’s elementary and middle schools coordinate safe rides to school during the Bike Challenge. Each day, parents and community volunteers check in students who rode or walked, with prizes provided to students for their bicycling achievements.

South Tahoe Middle School will host a day-long bicycle skills clinic for students, with volunteers from the Community Mobility Group and the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition.

Information on the Tahoe Bike Challenge can be found online, including details on how to register as a team or as an individual, and how to log miles.

People can find tips on safe riding at the Bike Coalition’s website. To find a route to school or work using the best bike route, use this interactive online map.
