During the month of August we asked you, our members, supporters, and the cycling community at large to rally together and log each bike trip they rode online for the ClifBar 2 Mile Challenge. The Challenge is designed as a fun, interactive way to get people onto their bikes while at the same time supporting grassroots advocacy – $1 for every trip logged, up to $10,000. During August, MassBike was the recipient of that donation.
We are pleased to announce that we reached our goal and have successfully logged 10,000 bike trips during the month of August on 2milechallenge.com! Riders from throughout Massachusetts and across the nation rode their bikes and logged their miles in support of the good work MassBike does to make cycling a safe, practical option for transportation and recreation throughout Massachusetts. Thank you to everyone who logged trips and to ClifBar for inviting MassBike to participate in this campaign. We really couldn’t have done it without you. No, really. This money is going to go to support our advocacy and education work, including programs like Bay State Bike Week, putting on the Bike/Walk Summit, and involvement on infrastructure projects like the Fore River Bridge. Basically, every trip you logged was an action to make Massachusetts better for biking. Happy riding!
