Bike Month Challenges in Washington State

Whether you focus your riding on a local Bike Challenge during Bike to Work Week or join our #BikeEverywhere Challenge — or both! — Washington state has lots of ways to tally up your riding. As the #1 Bike-Friendly State in the nation for eight years straight (most recent designation was in 2019) we have people bicycling all over the state all year round. The state’s commute trip reduction law provides ongoing opportunities to tally vehicle miles avoided and get a chance to win prizes, too.

If we’re missing your local Bike Month event let us know and we’ll add it to the list!
