National Bicycle Challenge

Charlie Czar

In 2012, 30,000 participants rode 12 million miles. Colorado finished 10th in the State competition. CSCC had 4 teams and 3 teams were in the top 11 of the 170 Colorado teams.

Click on www.endomondo.com/campaign/national/welcome   for a quick overview.  If you are interested then go to www.nationalbikechallenge.org   to sign-up and join (the site will remember you if you signed up last year).  Members need to first register as an individual ( have a JPG picture handy to put on your personal page ).  Once registered then look for the link to join a team.  I think I did it by going to the “Leaderboard” “pull down menu” and clicked on “Teams”.  There was a “team joining” question and link on the right side of the next page.  Click there and look for Colorado Springs Cycling Club (our 25 th  anniversary jersey is our team logo).  I am the team administrator and will accept CSCC members onto the team.

As Charlie Czar commented in a recent email blast, "I developed a short cut : I signed in, got to my mile log in page, and then “bookmarked” that page.  Then I did not  hit the “logout” button when I was done.  After that I just hit that “bookmark” and got right to the mile page.  There were a few times (usually at the beginning of the next month) that I had to sign in again, but that really wasn’t a problem."

www.endomondo.com/campaign/national/rules   links to the short set of Challenge rules. Earn 20 points every day you ride your bike and earn a point for every mile you ride.  You don’t have to ride far to earn points for the team; just ride often.  If you get out 3, 4, or 5 times a week you’ll be healthier.

Sign up now, log your rides on the Endomondo site.  The more you ride and join CSCC on the summer bike rides and events, the more CSCC's team will benefit in the National  Bike Challenge!.
