The 2018 Coast Challenge

To kick off Florida Bike Month celebrations, the Coast Challenge will return March 1 to March 31, rewarding the five Coast Bike Share riders taking the highest number of trips in March.

Our inaugural 2017 Coast Challenge was a huge success with some committed Coasters ditching their cars completely to compete. Last year, our top rider took 94 trips in March. That’s an average of three trips per day! We can’t wait to see how you do this time.

The challenge:

The top five riders who take the highest number of trips in the month of March will receive one of the rewards below. A trip is defined as a ride 3+ minutes long. You can take as many trips as you like. We’ll keep track of the numbers and announce the top five trip counts weekly on social media. To keep track of your own trips, log into the Social Bicycles app, where you’ll also see information on distance traveled and calories burned.

The rewards:

1st: Brunch for two at Oxford Exchange in Tampa.

2nd: A five-class pass to Peace of Yoga in St. Petersburg.

3rd: A one-month membership to Vertical Ventures in Tampa or St. Petersburg.

4th: A free month of Coast membership (or comparable ride credits) and a Coast t-shirt.

5th: A free month of Coast membership (or comparable ride credits).

Get bonus points:

Users can gain one additional trip to add to their tallies for every Coast selfie snapped and tagged @CoastBikes on Twitter or Instagram.
