Let's beat Brownie Town

Written by Diana Nelson Jones on .

The National Bike Challenge starts Wednesday and runs through the end of September, and this year, Pittsburgh bicyclists will try to defend our 2012 status as Rustbelt Champion.
During the next five months, people who sign up to contribute their logged miles can help the ‘burgh beat Brownie Town.
The National Bike Challenge is also a way for regular bicyclists to chart their miles each day, whether they cycle for exercise, for commute or both.. 
Bike Pittsburgh and Over the Bar Bicycle Cafe on the Southside are the local sponsors. Nationally, the sponsors are The League of American Bicyclists, Kimberly Clark and Endomondo.
You can sign up for the whole challenge or at any point therein here. Include your zip code to help Pittsburgh outride Cleveland.
