Social Biking challenge

The European Commission is launching its Social Biking challenge across Europe this year from 16 September (start of EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK) for three weeks. The Social Biking challenge aims to encourage cycling as a social habit. The challenge promotes physical activity, the use of a sustainable transport mode (the bicycle!), and also aims to increase the modal share of cycling by creating a network of cyclists.

The challenge is based on the BikePrints app, a tracking app for cyclists, already available in Google Play and Apple app stores. The app allows users to track their rides, and to participate in a three-week competition within their city and also with all the other participating cities in Europe.  Participants may ride alone, in pairs or in groups, and earn points based on the distance they ride; the points will eventually be converted to prizes.

The European Commission is seeking local coordinators to help promote and organise the Social Biking Challenge in their city/town. The local coordinator who organises the most successful local Social Biking challenge will receive an award at a special ceremony in Brussels.

Potential Local Social Biking Coordinators (municipalities, NGOs, cycling clubs, etc.) who would like to organise the Social Biking challenge in their town/city (either within EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK or independently) are requested to express their interest by 30 July 2018, by contacting us at: eu-socialbiking@ec.europa.eu.
