Each week of the PSU Bike Challenge we’ll be highlighting one of our amazing sponsors who have made this event possible.

This week’s sponsor is Olé Latte. Olé Latte coffee started in 2012 and now has two carts in downtown Portland which serve a variety of beverages made from locally sourced small-batched products. They also give back to the community through their “Suspended Coffee” board, a pay-it-forward system.

You can get your hands on some FREE and delicious Olé Latte coffee throughout the month of May at any of our weekly Biker Breakfasts.

How do I log my trips?

You can log a ride on the PSU Bike Challenge website from your profile page using the ‘Add a Ride’ tab. You can also download the Love to Ride App for Android and iPhone.

What if I don’t want to log every ride?

Then Moves is the app for you! Moves runs in the background of your phone and allows you to sync with your profile to update your stats automatically as you ride!

We’ve also built in a sync with Strava, MapMyRide, and Endomondo, for those already using another app.

How do I win prizes?

Every trip logged on the website or app is an automatic entry into the weekly prize drawing. Winners will be announced via email, on the Challenge website, and on our blog.

Just be sure to log all of your rides by Friday each week in order to be eligible for prizes and a chance to win a brand new Raleigh bike!

At the end of the challenge, we’ll also be hosting an Awards Party where we’ll hand out prizes and trophies for winners in various individual and team categories.
