November 2016 Rain or Shine Bike Challenge

The PSU Bike Hub is excited to announce the first annual Rain or Shine Bike Challenge!


What is it?

The PSU Rain or Shine Challenge is a fun, free competition to reward faculty, staff, and student riders who get out on their bikes and ride, even in the wet Portland weather.

We want to encourage more people to ride all year long, rain or shine.

How does it work?

Similar to the bike challenge held in May, PSU departments will compete against each other to see who can get the most students and staff to ride a bike between November 1st and 30th, 2016.

The competition is based on the number of people taking part, and people encouraged, not just how far or fast you can ride. The departments that get the highest percentage participation (for their size category) win a prize.

The Challenge is not just about who can ride the most miles, but who can encourage the most people to give bicycling in November a try.

How do I log my trips?

For automatic trip logging, we recommend using the Ride Report app. Ride Report runs in the background of your phone so you never have to tell it when you're riding. Once you sync the app with your profile on the website we'll get your data and update your stats automatically as you ride!

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

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.
