October 2018: Fall Bike Challenge

Register a team, and ride rain or shine!

The Fall Bike Challenge is a university-wide team bike commute challenge on the Corvallis campus. Compete against friends and coworkers for extra prizes and bragging rights. Read the rules here.


 A rider demonstrates how a ZAP tag mounts to their bike wheel.


First, bring your bike to one of the designated tagging locations, and ask the staff to install your free ZAP tag. The tag mounts on your front wheel, and will count your trips to OSU when you ride past tag readers located at entrances to campus.

Tagging Locations

Below is a map of all the ZAP stations on campus. You can ride by them as many times as you want (and you might want to - they emit a satisfying beep every time you ride by!) but you can only get credit for one ZAP per day.
