Calling All Club Leaders: Join the National Bike Challenge!
Bike club leaders from across the country joined League staff and the Kaw Valley Bicycle Club (KVBC) on Tuesday night for a dynamic and educational webinar all about what the National Bike Challenge can do for your club and your community.
Shelli Shipps of the KVBC fielded questions from attendees and the League’s Alison Dewey, giving some great insight into her experiences with the Challenge in 2012 — including winning a Specialized Globe bike (pictured) — and what KVBC plans to do in 2013.
“We competed against each other, but we also competed as a town” she said, describing the competition between KVBC and local advocacy group, Topeka Community Cycle Project. “We would have rides, and then hang out afterwards and discuss different things going on in the community as far as bicycling.” Now, the Topeka Community Cycle Project and the KVBC are working together on how to increase biking in their town!

.Club involvement, like that of the KVBC, is what makes the Challenge the incredible resource and event that it is. To build on that momentum, in 2013, we ensured that team sizes are unlimited (rather than capped at 10 riders), and have created a selection of promo materials that anyone is encouraged to use.
