Celebrate Bike Month 2021
by participating in the
Bike Month Challenge
Log as many miles as possible on a bike during the month of May! Bike Tri-Cities, together with Wheelhouse Community Bike Shop, Ben Franklin Transit and the Benton-Franklin Council of Governments, have prepared 5 self-guided family rides on paths in the Tri-Cities to be completed each week throughout the month of May to help you complete your challenge.
A link to information on each week's ride is located to the right →
Log your rides using Ben Franklin Transit's Ridepro program to be entered to win prizes for logging the most days ridden during the month and for participating in the self-guided rides. Instructions for using RidePro can be found below.
Share pictures of your ride on our Facebook page and be sure to use the hashtag #bikethetri
Grab your helmet and get out to explore some of the great bike routes we have available to us here in the Tri-Cities!
