In recognition of National Bike Month, the City encourages local cyclists to take part in a free cycling challenge from May 1 through May 31 by logging their miles in Strava.
Whether it’s on a mountain bike trail, on a multi-use path, or along the highway, every mile logged in Strava counts. Every 15 miles earns participants one ticket in a grand prize drawing that will be held on May 31. There will also be weekly winners for both youth and adult divisions based on total distance logged that week.
Participants can register for a free account at www.strava.com and join the “SV Cycling Challenge” for adults or the “SV Youth Cycling Challenge” for anyone younger than 18. Strava can be used to track miles via its smartphone apps and also integrates with wearable GPS devices. Tickets for the drawing can be picked up each Monday at the Ethel H. Berger Center based on miles logged in Strava.
For more information about the cycling challenge, call John Healy at (520) 439-2302 or email Sports@nullSierraVistaAZ.gov.
