Commuter Challenge Contest
Riders who log miles in the 2017 Commuter Challenge will be eligible to win a Bike Week 2017 prize pack including a Velo Membership at the Reno BikeProject, a 10-ride bus pass from RTC, and a $50 gift card to REI. While we want to foster a community of people who use bicycles to commute from place to place, we recognize the importance of every mile ridden within our region whether it is for commuting or for recreation. For each day from May 13 through May 19, we want you to log into BikeWashoe.org and log any and all miles you’ve put on your bicycle. All miles must be logged by 12:00 PM on May 20, 2017. We will select one winner at random from the pool of riders who logged miles for each of those days, starting with May 13. Logging more miles in a given day does not increase your chances of winning. Any winner selected for a given day will not be eligible for an additional prize package for a later day in the week. Winners will be contacted soon after May 20 via the email they used to sign up for their BikeWashoe.org account.
