Ride in the Rain Challenge

Contest Dates: November 1 through 30

Washington Bikes invites seasoned pedalers, new bike riders, and cyclists from all over our state to bike as much as possible for any reason during November 1-30. The idea of the Ride in the Rain Challenge is to turn a common barrier to biking — inclement weather — on its head and celebrate biking during the rainiest month of the year. We’re confident that if you can ride during the rainiest month and enjoy it, you’ll see how possible it is to bike all year round!

How to Participate

Starting mid-October, register for free and log your bike trips November 1-30.  You can ride solo or form a team of coworkers, friends or neighbors, and log your trips on the user-friendly Ride in the Rain Challenge website. Sign up for the challenge – Registration link will be available October 22.

The Deets:

  • Anyone can participate.
  • You can track all your bike trips, not just commute trips. 
  • You can log an unlimited number of bike trips.
