Welcome to the Summer Challenge!

Breathe Bike Trek riders before a bike ride

While we continue to practice social distancing and other measures to keep our communities safe and healthy, we are pleased to offer some rides to challenge you this summer. Keep yourself cycling and active by participating in our challenge routes listed below and we encourage you to register for the 1-Day Trek ride here.

Join us on the road this summer by choosing your ride length and completing all the rides in that length category. Show us that you finished all the rides in that length category or a combination of categories and win bragging rights! Don’t forget about the bonus ride included at the bottom.
Each set of routes features beautiful scenery, challenging hills, flat streets and easy-to-find starting locations. Riders participating in the Summer Challenge can win prizes and bragging rights to show off on Facebook or your next Zoom call! We can’t wait to see you on the road, at a distance but still together.

We look forward to riding with you, distanced, on October, 3rd! Register here.
