Bike Month Challenges

Carry It With You Challenge - Sep. 1st-11th

Bicycles are a great form of recreation, transportation, and a sustainable, self-powered way to haul stuff around town. Whether you’ve loaded up panniers, made use of a rack, or found another inventive way to carry something by bike- we want to know about it for our Carry It With You Challenge!

This challenge runs from September 1st to September 11th and one lucky winner will receive a basket from Nantucket Bike Basket Co

How to Join the Challenge:

  • Take a ride where you carry something on your bicycle & snap a pic of your carrying set up
  • Share your story about what you carried with you by bike with us! Either post your photo and story on social media and tag @MassBike or email your photo and story to [email protected]

Be a Bike Buddy Challenge - Sep. 12th-18th

Everyone knows that bikes are better with friends! To celebrate Rolling Together Again, be a bike buddy with our second bike month challenge and share a ride with a friend!

This challenge runs from September 12th to September 18th and one lucky winner & their bike buddy will each receive a set of MassBike socks in either black or green, a MassBike Buff, and a 2021 Bay State Bike Month T-shirt so they can be bike-twins.

Race to the Town Line Challenge - Sep. 27th-Oct. 2nd

One of the best things about bicycles is the places they take us. Race to the town line with our final Bay State Bike Month Challenge- whether it’s your town or somewhere new we want you to share a photo of yourself & your bicycle at a Town/City sign of your choice.

This challenge runs from September 27th to October 2nd (because who says Bike Month needs to end on September 30th?). One winner will receive a Family Membership to The Trustees. With a year-long Family Membership to The Trustees, you’ll enjoy free or reduced admission to 120 spectacular properties around Massachusetts for two adults and children under the age of 18. You’ll find everything, from beaches and waterfalls to woodlands and historic houses. This prize will help you explore Massachusetts and see even more towns/cities across the state.

How to Join the Challenge:

  • Take a ride to a Town or City sign (bonus if it’s a new municipality you’re visiting) & snap a photo of you with a sign
  • Share your story about your ride with us! Either post your photo and story on social media and tag @MassBike or email your photo and story to [email protected]
