Ride in the Rain Challenge starts Wednesday, are you signed up?

Registration for the annual November Ride in the Rain Challenge is open and begins Wednesday.

Much like the Bike Month Challenge, Ride in the Rain is a team-based, online trip-tracking event meant to help encourage people to keep biking even as the weather turns wetter and chillier. Teams of people help encourage each other and compete with other teams to log the most trips throughout November.

And since November is statistically the rainiest month of the year in Seattle, if you can make it through this month you can bike all year. That’s a very empowering experience if you haven’t done it yet.

This November 1-30, Washington Bikes is inviting everyone in the state of Washington to participate in the Ride in the Rain Challenge, a friendly competition among two-wheeled teams to bike as much as possible—for fun, for work or for just getting around town.

Participants log bike trips throughout the month of November while competing for bragging rights and prizes—and to prove that no one embraces the rainy season like the Pacific Northwest.

More than 1,500 participants have already signed up for the Ride in the Rain Challenge and formed more than 300 teams. Washington Bikes will help get new and veteran riders rolling with encouragement, tips and resources and prize opportunities throughout November.

Visit https://www.lovetoride.net/washington to sign up, form a team and participate in all the rainy fun.

Participants are encouraged to share Ride in the Rain Challenge photos by tagging #RideinRain and @wabikes on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Registration is free and open to everyone in Washington, so form a team of friends or ride solo, and log your bike trips for a chance to earn prizes and bragging rights.

Visit https://www.lovetoride.net/washington to learn more and take the Challenge. 

Ride in the Rain is made possible through the support of our sponsors at SKS, the University of Washington, Showers Pass and Ortlieb.

  1. I think rain pants need to be in your arsenal for commuting in the rainy season nowadays. Usually you don’t need them, but when you do they are a life saver.

      Agreed Jack! Once I finally purchased rain pants, I realized that commuting to work by bike all year long really isn’t a big deal. I sold my truck 3 months later and haven’t looked back.

    It’s not rain that worries me. It’s dark fog. Or, dark frozen roads. Do y’all keep biking in the dark fog? And what about slick roads?
