All month long, the Living Streets Alliance is challenging you and your coworkers to get out and get cycling! The "Tucson Bike More Challenge" gives you a chance to win money and prizes just by riding your bike.
 
Get started by downloading the "Love to Ride" app in the App store. Then create a profile and take at least one bike ride for ten minutes or more. Once you log your ride in the app, you will get points for that ride. At the end of the month, the company with the most points and riders wins.
 
 Encourage your coworkers to join in as your company competes against another company of a similar size. Colby Henley of the Living Streets Alliance said it's not just a way to improve our health or our environment. This is about getting people to remember the joy of riding a bike.
 
The Living Streets Alliance says about 30 percent of people who get the app that didn't bike are now riding to work regularly.
 
The Challenge is open to any and all residents of Pima County or anyone who works in the area, and is free to take part. Registration is open now!
