JVC Winter Challenge


What is the JVC Winter Challenge?


How hard-core are you?  Can you ride your bike outdoors one day in January (a minimum of 5 miles) and one day in February?  How about 5 miles in a day once a week?  What about riding 5 miles every day from January 1st through the end of February?  Others have done it, so what about you?  Think you can ride more than 5 miles in a day?  Go for it!  The challenge is to ride your bicycle outdoors on as many days as you can at least 5 miles a day (more is better) in January and February.  Sound simple?  Well then use the link below, read the rules, submit the form, and accept the Challenge!

 The Challenge is also a fundraiser...

Help us raise funds by encouraging your friends & family to make pledges on the number of days and/or miles you ride during the 2-month challenge period.
