TEAM SIZES

Like past Washington Bikes facilitated challenges, teams will be limited to 10 riders. Bike Everywhere is all about encouraging people to ride, whether they already ride every week or haven't been on a bike in years. That means recognizing teams for having new riders and regular riders alike.

At the same time, we want the competition between teams to be fair. Of course some teams will earn more points, but we don't want folks with dozens of riding buddies to just automatically crush a small business that gets excited about inviting staff to sign up and ride. For these reasons, we are awarding double points for new riders. While you don't need to have new riders on your team for Bike Everywhere, the more you have, the more points your team will get.

Your team's overall score will be determined through a combination of days ridden, miles ridden and encouragements given.

 

EARNING POINTS

  • 1 point per mile, up to 30 miles per trip
  • 10 points per day
  • 10 points per trip (up to four trips or two round trips)
  • 20 points per invitation that leads to a registration

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATING?

  • Free for everyone
  • Loads of pedal powered camaraderie
  • The spirit of friendly competition
  • Help reduce congestion, emissions, and save people money
  • Bragging rights. Period.

I just recorded a ride with synced app, but I'm not seeing in. What's up?

It may take some times for apps to talk to each other. Check back in a couple of hours. If it’s been 24 hours and your ride still has not synced, you have the following options:

  1. Log the ride manually.
  2. Send us an email for support.

Virtual rides (such as with Zwift) cannot be synced at this time. You’ll have to log these manually.

Do indoor and virtual rides count?

Absolutely! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize that some people may be in quarantine due to known contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19 or choose to limit their outdoor trips. In the spirit of keeping people safe and active, we’re allowing virtual and indoor rides to count towards rides and mileage. You’ll have to manually log these rides, however.
