Thanks for Biking There with us, SLO County!
Bike There was a smashing success. We had over 130 locations county wide and logged more than a 1000 QR code scans from community members throughout the region. For the first 500 who scanned a QR code, you can expect a goodie bag from Rideshare to arrive in your mailbox by June 30th.

Wherever you go…
Whether you’re back at work (or never left), running errands, or simply looking to enjoy some fresh air, we invite you to #BikeThere with us on May 20-23. May is National Bike Month and while we’d typically celebrate Bike to Work and School Days across SLO County, this year we’re highlighting the power of bicycles to connect communities and generate joy, while improving our health and preserving our air quality. Share photos of your solo or family rides on social media using #BikeThere and tag us (Instagram @slorideshare / Facebook @Rideshare / Twitter @slorideshare) – together we can help spread the word that bikes are key to our future.

To compete, simply visit iRideshare.org and log trips by bike to work, errands, and other spots around town. Electric bike trips and walking places count, too! So get active, log trips, and steal (or defend) the Challenge TITLE and trophy. Trophies will be awarded the week of May 24th.
