The Commute Challenge presented by Adobe is open for registration

Bike Month is just around the corner and the 2013 Commute Challenge presented by Adobe is NOW OPEN for registration!

Sign up today, log your trips, and challenge yourself and others to ride as much as possible from May 1-31. Each year thousands of people ride individually or on teams in this fun, free online trip-tracking contest. This is your chance to outride your coworkers and friends in a competition for prizes and eternal bragging rights.

What's cool about the Challenge

There are many reasons to ride in the Commute Challenge, but most of all it's just a lot of fun.  Not only is this your chance to engage in a little friendly competition with your friends and coworkers, but it’s also an opportunity to track the miles you ride, calories you burn, and carbon emissions you save by choosing to bike to work. All participants are eligible for prizes, a free souvenir, and off-the-charts good times. Team captains who form workplace- or community-based teams enjoy extra perks like a free T-shirt and an invitation to the Captains Bash at Pike Brewery.

Ready to take the challenge? Here’s your to-do list:

1. Register as a team captain, solo rider or team rider. Registration is free and only takes a few minutes. If you plan to join a team, you can either wait for a team invitation from a captain, or go ahead and sign up as an individual and transfer to a team when invited by a captain. Cascade makes recruiting team members easy with the captain’s toolkit.

3. Recruit a newbie. May is the best time to start riding, so share the joy of bicycling and encourage your friends and coworkers to give biking a try!

3. Take a test spin. You can log in and record your trips until April 30, when we'll reset the the stats for the beginning of the Challenge.

4. Promote Bike Month. Help build momentum and spread the word using Cascade's downloadable posters and graphics.

5. Mark your calendars. Bike Month is chock full of great events like F5 Bike to Work Day (May 17), the Ballard Street Party (May 31) and more. Check out the full schedule.

6. Ride on and have fun!
