Way to keep up the pace PGH! We set a goal of 1250 riders this year. It would be great for us to have to update that goal. 1500, 2000? BTW a few of us from the BP office road the freshly minted Sandcastle leg of the GAP yesterday. Awesome! It seemed like we passed over 100 people riding bikes on our way to Homestead.
There's some buzz that folks are having a hard time uploading their workplace logo. If you are the administer of your workplace (if you set it up at www.endomondo.com/registration), go to www.endomondo.com/customize. From here, you can upload a logo. Make sure it's a .jpg, and sometimes it takes some time for it to then appear in the LeaderBoard.
PGH riders, sorry for the confusion, but the Pedal for Pints program at OTB Bicycle Cafe will give you one free drink PER MEDAL that you earn. New cards will be printed by Friday with the correct point levels, you can pick them up at OTB when you go in for your first drink after 100 points.
Now that you've joined the challenge you can Pedal for (free) Pints at OTB Bicycle Cafe in the South side - the official 2013 Pittsburgh Bike Challenge Headquarters. Once the challenge officially starts on May 1, you can trade your point totals for free drinks. Invite friends to join your team and you can strategize over pints or pop at OTB.
Be sure your entire workplace has entered the same spelling of your company's name. For example, BikePGH vs. Bike Pittsburgh. Make sure you and your coworkers are pedaling together! To change your workplace, go to the pgh challenge homepage, click on your picture, then follow the link to "change settings".
Tomorrow is May 1st! All points/miles will be set to ZERO and the challenge will officially begin! That means that our competition with CLE for the Rust Crown will be live! Stay tuned to BIkePGH.org for the rivalry updates. Rally your friends to join the challenge and lets kick Cleveland's rusty can!
