Bike2PSU Challenge Begins in Two Weeks!

DSC1116.resized.retouched

The Bike2PSU Challenge is almost here!  Join today and create a team or ride solo. This is your chance to compete against your fellow students, faculty and staff by logging every trip you make to campus by bike. It’s also the perfect opportunity to encourage your colleagues to ride! Form a team and invite your friends, then help them achieve their goal to ride more.  Best of all — win prizes just for participating! We’ll be giving away prizes from all our sponsors every week.

Every trip, partial or whole, counts as long as you use a bicycle. Riding in and busing home? It counts! Using your bike to reach the light rail station? Count it! We know every time you hop on your bike, you’re doing something good for your health, good for your pocketbook, and great for your community. That’s why we LOVE the RIDE!

Bike2PSU Awards Ceremony – SUCCESS!

Thanks again to everyone who attended the Bike2PSU Challenge celebration and awards ceremony to make the event a huge success! We had a totally packed house which was incredible but it also means that all ten of the Hotlips Pizzas went in roughly 9 minutes, so our apologies for those who didn’t get a slice.

Along with our outstanding awards, we also raffled off a ton of goodies and saw a lot of happy people walk out of the door. That said, we want to extend a hearty thank you, once again, for our amazing and extremely generous sponsors.

- KIND
- B-Line Sustainable Urban Delivery
- Guayaki Yerba Mate
- Linus Bike
- PDW
- Better World Club
- Bern Unlimited
- Chrome Industries

We certainly could not have made the event such a massive success without all of your support.

OK Portland State, it’s a gorgeous day outside so get on your bike and enjoy it! 

Thanks again for being part of the Bike2PSU Challenge!

Bike2PSU (Last) week #4: Prize winners and announcments!

Bike2PSU ChallengeCongratulations, Portland State University, on yet another amazing Bike2PSU Challenge! We didn’t hit our goal of 1,100 active riders but we did achieve 1,000 active cyclists and that gives us a huge grin knowing that so many of you participated in the Bike to PSU Challenge. We are proud that you all rode despite this months interesting cycling weather. We received unrelenting rain, frigid temperatures and powerful wind gusts but with the rough (after-all it is called a “Challenge”!) came the rides that made you happy to be alive. Let’s not forget those first two weeks and last few days of simply sublime sunny, gorgeous Portland spring weather.  And even though the Challenge is officially over, we do hope that you will continue your ride routine regardless of the prizes.

Speaking of prizes, we know you aren’t reading this blog post just for the announcements! Below are our last weekly winners… Continue Reading
