Whether you live in Vermont or New Hampshire, grab your bike, sneakers, or boots and join Vital Communities, Local Motion, and Go! Vermont for the 2021 Vermont Winter Bike/Walk Challenge, through February 12 (International Winter Bike to Work Day)!

No need to register, just record a bike ride, a walk, or a run on the Go! Vermont app or website at least twice by February 12 and be entered to win one of four $100 gift cards from Outdoor Gear Exchange or Farm-Way. (All gift cards can be used for online purchases.)

AND, we have a special Upper Valley-only incentive: if you rent an electric fat bike (for trail riding) from Vermont Bike & Brew through February 12 and log your ride on the Go! Vermont app / website, you will receive a coupon for 40% off your next electric fat bike rental. Just send them a screenshot of your trip in the app. And when you come to use the coupon, your friends and family will receive 10% off their fat bike rental, provided they have not previously ridden with Vermont Bike & Brew.

Download the app in the App Store or Google Play or sign up for the desktop version at govermont.agilemile.com. Make a profile, and start logging your trips!

Most years, eligible rides, walks, or runs needs to be commutes, but for 2021, we are excited to open the challenge to anyone who gets outside and gets moving, even just for fun!

The goals of the challenge are to get people riding and walking (ideally for transportation) AND reward those who are doing it already (especially those who don’t have access to other transportation). We know winter riding can be tough, and we’re putting together online resources to help. Check out these winter riding tips from us and Local Motion.

With the days still short, do you or someone you know need hi-vis gear for your winter commute but don’t have access to it? We have a limited supply of reflective / hi-vis gear that we want to give away to people who need it! Contact us so we can make the arrangements to get it to you.

Happy winter walking, running, and biking!
