Global Bike Challenge Header September 1-30

We are taking our 'Round the Town with Oscar Bike Ride for September and partnering with Love to Ride USA on their Cycle September - The Global Bike Challenge!

We are encouraging everyone in NRH to take part in Cycle September - a global competition with individuals and organizations coming together to help more people realize the benefits of riding a bike. Riding a bike is a great way to maintain physical distancing, get some exercise, enjoy some fresh air and feel connected with the world around us.

Love to Ride USA is on a mission to get a million more people on bikes, and they’ve enlisted the support of some friends to offer some fantastic prizes (tours, bikes, gear, accessories) to tempt you, your friends, your family, and co-workers to join in. From September 1-30 all ages are invited to join Cycle September – the Global Bike Challenge and NRH wanted our community to be a part of the fun!

Everyone who logs a ride in September will go into a drawing for the trip of a lifetime to New Zealand for a mountain biking adventure with Haka Tours and plenty of other prizes like free and discounted gear and bikes.
