What is the School Bike Challenge?

The School Bike Challenge is part of the Thurston County Bicycle Commuter Challenge which takes place during bike month every May.

Schools are responsible for recruiting students to participate, handing out and collecting mileage logs, and awarding prizes.

School Bike Challenge tool kits include:

  • Mileage logs
  • Promotional posters
  • Prizes
  • Thurston County bike maps
