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!
