Our April Miles Bring Summer Smiles ride challenge is done and despite the rainiest April that anyone can remember, together we rolled a combined 25,583.2 miles. Congratulations to everyone who got out there last month and put in some saddle time, it sure wasn’t easy but that was the point. Ride now to ride stronger later.
We saw 20 riders reach the challenge goal of Milestone 4 with many powering through for even more miles. Our Top 5 is a mix of riders opting for just a few long days out there and daily commuters supplementing with big weekend rides. All miles are good miles and we are super impressed with the effort from every rider.
Congratulations to everyone who put power to the pedals and we sure hope you found a few sunny miles in between all those April raindrops. As always, thanks to Ride with GPS for their assistance in supporting these fun challenges. And a special thank you to Showers Pass, Looptworks and Nossa Familia Coffee for their gracious support in offering prizes.
