Welcome to Alamo Commutes Bike Month Challenge! Throughout the month of May, we invite you to join us in celebrating the joy of biking and the benefits it brings to our community. Our Bike Month Challenge is an opportunity to encourage individuals in the region to ditch the car and hop on a bicycle for those daily commutes. Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or just starting out, this challenge is open to all abilities.

Each week, we'll unveil a theme. Participate and record your trips using that week’s theme to earn additional entries. Here’s how to participate: log you bike commutes throughout the month in the app and focus on those short distance trips. Each week, we’ll unveil a theme related to the challenge. Record those trips using that week’s theme to earn additional entries in the challenge. Visit the Alamo Commutes website or download the mobile app now to join!
