NBC Update-2

The National Bike Challenge has passed well over the 3 million mile mark with over 26,000 riders, and will cross 4 million soon.

Vermont leads all states (again), with 1107 riders and 118,406 miles pedaled.

California drops to 39th of the 50 states even as the number of riders grew from 1273 to 1406, and miles pedaled grew to over 195,011 miles so far.

3 riders from the OC  are currently in the top 10 for the state,  #2 William Hunt – 1,259, #6 Jonny Weir – 1,175, and  #8 Greg Kline  – 1,103 miles ridden respectively!

Greg and William are riding on a team called “Riders Against Bike Lanes”, or “RABL”, while Jonny is riding solo.

While California may not be leading the pack in the National Bike Challenge, it is leading the country in a much deadlier challenge, and that would be the challenge to stay alive, and free from injury when riding your bike in this state.

Ride strong and ride safe!
