Pedal like our climate depends on it! The 2024 No Pollute Commute Bike to Work Challenge encourages Rhode Islanders to reduce CO2 emissions in our state by commuting to work and school by bike instead of car. Are YOU up for the challenge?

This month-long Bike Challenge encourages Rhode Islanders to reduce carbon emissions by riding their bikes to work. It’s free to participate. Just sign up here, ride your bike, log your trips and see how you are making RI a greener state!  The more bike trips you record, the more chances you have to win!

There will be weekly winners and a grand prize winner.
