Step 1

Create a free account with the Alamo Commutes app or website to create a profile and begin recording your bicycle trips. In order to be eligible, make sure that you’ve included an updated email address as well as your employer.

If you already have an Alamo Commutes account, congrats! You’re almost there.

Step 2

Once you’ve set up your Alamo Commutes profile, go to “Trips” select “Record a Trip”. Select “New Trip”, then “Bike”. Select “Every week” to record your trips automatically, like if you bike to work every day.

Or you can sync Alamo Commutes with your Strava or UnderArmour account to automatically record your rides! On the Alamo Commutes mobile app, go to “Trips” then select your syncing options. You will be directed to log into that account and agree to share that data.

Step 3

Once you’ve started recording your bicycle trips,  you’re done! You can also redeem your points for other prizes and rewards.

If you’ve recorded at least one bicycle trip within the challenge timeframe, you’ll be entered to win one of six $50 Visa gift cards.
