First, April 1 is the opening of registration for the 2019 Bay Area Bicycle Challenge! Get your teams together, start training, and have a great time racking up miles, points and virtual prizes during the month of May! If you rode in 2018, you already are registered for 2019 (and only need to edit your profile if something has changed). And if you’re new to BABC for 2019, on April 1, go here to register. And of course, make Bike to Work Day 2019 — May 9 — part of your Bay Area Bike Challenge 2019 mileage!

April 2 is the last day to nominate your favorite bike community — someone who inspires  and motivates you and deserves to be recognized. One Bike Commuter of the Year will be awarded in each of the nine counties of the Bay Area — Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma — and announced on April 25. Be sure to nominate your favorite commuter here!

Need even more incentive to get out and ride on BTWD? Take the pledge to ride this year and enter for a chance to win a trip to Alaska’s spectacular Kenai Peninsula, thanks to Exodus Travels and Alaska Airlines. Take the pledge to ride in your county today!

We look forward to seeing you on May 9 as BTWD 2019 rolls across the Bay Area, and throughout the whole month of May if you participate in the Challenge!
