In 2016, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance gave the September Bike Commute Challenge a new name and moved it to May! Now coinciding with National Bike Month, the Bike More Challenge (BMC) encourages everyone across Oregon to get out of their cars and on their bikes to see who can #BikeMore!

to the BMC, even in a torrential downpour!
During May, the Portland Water Bureau joined the month-long friendly competition.
Forty-nine Water Bureau employees participated, logging a total of just under 10,000 miles. For the entire state of Oregon, 832 organizations with 11,761 participants took part during the challenge, clocking over 1.6 million miles!
Great job to all participants! For more information on the challenge, visit the BMC's official webpage.
