The Spring Bike Challenge runs from May 1-31.  All biking skill levels are welcome!  You can form a team of friends, co-workers or classmates to enjoy a friendly campus-wide competition.  

*Some of the teams in the past have formed across departments, included students and employees, or even created their own team t-shirts.  The challenge is an opportunity to be creative and to mix things up as you like.  

    How the bike challenge works:

    • To participate, all team members need to register for ZAP (that’s how we keep track of scores).
    • New teams, please fill out a team registration.
    • Team minimum: 4 members
    • Team maximum: 10 members 
    • Email Transportation@oregonstate.edu if you want to make adjustments to an existing team roster.
    • If you add a team member who has already collected ZAPs in May, all of their May ZAPs will count toward your team score.
    • If you already have a team set up in ZAP, you are all set to participate in the Spring Bike Challenge.
    • You only get 1 ZAP each day.  Be prepared to ride rain or shine (even on weekends!) to collect ZAPs for your team.
    • In the event of a tie in team ZAPs, the team with the higher "inspirational" score wins (1 point for every “sometimes” rider, and 2 points for every “never” rider on that team)

    Prizes:

    Winning teams will be based on the overall total of ZAP’s.  More people = more ZAPs for your team.

    First and Second Place: $20 Laughing Planet gift card for each team member 

    Third Place: Custom Showers Pass helmet covers.

    Hints:

    Find new ways to encourage each other – it really makes a difference!  

    To build a new team, try to find people who want to bike, and need a little nudge.  

    You can see your team's roster at the bottom of your ZAP dashboard, and congratulate each other as you rack up the ZAPs.
