Sign-ups for Winter Warrior III, a bike program for Dayton’s fearless bike riders! This year’s program runs from December 4th to February 23rd of 2017. “The goal of the program is to encourage riders to stay active throughout the winter with a challenge that has something for the competitive folks and those that just want to have fun,” says Chris Buck of Bike Miami Valley.
Participants can sign up for Winter Warrior III at Linkdayton.org any point during the challenge period and all trips taken during the three months count retroactively, regardless of sign-up date.
All are welcome to join the kickoff party on Friday, December 8, 2017. The social will take place at the Trolley Stop from 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM for a chance to meet other warriors and get a first look at this year’s top prize – a cruiser bike donated New Belgium Brewing Company.
The second year of the program attracted more than 50 participants who took a combined total of 4,049 trips over the three month period. But Buck says other riders shouldn’t be intimidated by the competition. “The challenge is designed to reward many users, not just those who take the most trips,” says Buck. “Winter Warrior features some daily mini-challenges, and the number of trips a person takes can count toward the number of raffle tickets they get at the end of the challenge period for the prize drawings.”
“My friends and I probably would have stayed in all winter, but instead this challenge got us out riding and having fun. It was awesome,” said Winter Warrior participant, Alexandra Stepanenko.
