Welcome to the Bike To PSU Challenge

The Bike To PSU Challenge is finally ON! Thanks for coming out to our first Biker Breakfast and our kick-off ice cream partay. We had a blast hosting and raffling off prizes including a Linus ruc sac, Giro helmet and a new bike from Breezer to our lucky participants today! If you only got to ice cream in the sunshine today, don’t worry ‘cuz we’re just getting started. You’ll have plenty of chances all month for glory and prizes. Log those miles and stay tuned for each week’s prize winners. We’ll be announcing them on our Facebook, Twitter and the biketopsu.com homepage. See you on the road!

Logging Trips

What if I bus/carpool/etc?
That’s great! For some, combining the bike with other modes such as busing or carpooling is the best way to work in a bike commute. Maybe riding 27 miles one-way isn’t for you, but why not ride 3 miles to the Park and Ride? For reporting mileage, just count the bike portion of your commute.
I sometimes bike the long way home and run errands by bicycle. Can I include these miles/trips in the contest?
Feel free to include errands, especially if you live on campus. If you do make an extended side trip for training or fun, please subtract those miles when updating your commute calendar.
I made a mistake entering my mileage and need to correct it.
You can correct entries back to the previous Wednesday of the week in question. Unfortunately we cannot retroactively enter mileage for teams.

Sharing your Bike to PSU Challenge
We’d love to see and hear about your commute. You can send us photos of your inspiration and your commute for us to share as our Inspiration of the Day. It can be something you see along your commute or something that keeps you going when the weather is less than perfect.
We’d also love you to share the story of your commute with us. We’ll put it up on our blog to help motivate everybody else out there. It can be 20 miles or it can be 20 blocks, we just want to share what folks are up to.
