I can’t believe we’re halfway through June and Provo Bike Month is over. These past two weeks we’ve been anxiously waiting for the National Bike Challenge website to update their leaderboard and I’m excited to announce that they’ve finally publish the results! Thank you to everyone who tracked their mileage during the month of May and participated in the challenge. So let’s start with Provo City’s overall ranking…
Because of everyone’s commitment and determination to get out and ride their bikes, Provo City was ranked 20th on the National Leader Board – which is pretty impressive since there is over 1,200 workplaces registered! We had a total of 320 riders, rode a total of 16,679.3 miles, and earned 42,311 points in the month of May. Go Provo!
Anyone who lives, works, or goes to school in Provo was eligible to participate in the Provo Bike Challenge. Those who finished at the top of their category (Top Male Competitor, Top Female Competitor, and Top Provo Organization) will be awarded at the end of the challenge and honored during Provo City’s Council Meeting on Tuesday, July 5. The top competitors will receive a Provo Bike Challenge 2016 trophy.
We’ve crunched the numbers and the winners are…
