May winners announced for National Bike Challenge

National Bike Challenge 2013The National Bike Challenge is off to an amazing start nationally with 30,000 riders signed up and pedaling 5 million miles so far! In the Evergreen State,  820 registered participants have collectively ridden 181,753 miles in the Challenge. Over half of the miles ridden in Washington, 56% to be exact, have been for transportation.

There will be monthly prize drawings at the national and local levels. Earlier this week, the League of American Bicyclists announced the May winners for the national prizes. The Bicycle Alliance is please to announce the May winners for our state Challenge prizes:

Gold Level:

Craig Antila of South Colby is the winner of an Alchemy Goods Haversack bag.

Silver Level:

Keith Payne of Walla Walla is the recipient of an I Bike WA technical tee from the Bicycle Alliance and Schromen-Wawrin will receive a membership from AAA Washington.

Bronze Level:

Steve Hasegawa of Seattle and Kathleen Bisagna of Mount Vernon will each receive an annual subscription to Bicycle Paper. Liese Anex of Seattle is winner of a waterproof helmet cover and reflective legband.

Winners should email Louise McGrody to claim their prizes.

We tip our helmets and say thanks to our local Challenge sponsors who made these prizes possible: Alchemy Goods, AAA Washington and Bicycle Paper.

It’s not too late to pedal with us in the National Bike Challenge! The Challenge runs through the end of September and ALL bike miles count–transportation, recreation and mountain biking miles. Prize drawings are held monthly and you don’t have to ride a lot of miles to qualify for the drawing.
