Fall Bike Challenge – 2023

Friday September 29, 2023 – Sunday October 1st

RCC presents: a unique, weekend-long bike challenge that anyone can participate in.

Riders will navigate to each point using GPS and look for a small flag with the RCC logo and a unique code. Each code you collect counts as one entry into the prize draw on Sunday! Prizes will include a $50 gift card to Western Cycle, a $50 gift card to Dutch Cycle, and several other small bike-related prizes.

Register for FREE by signing up for the ride and signing the waiver in the LinkMyRide app.

Here are the twelve points you are looking for:
