Webinar: Finding the Right Bike for You
RSVP here to receive event link

Are you buying your first bicycle or a replacement? Whether it's your first or not, we'll give you details on how to select a bike for the rides you love. Local cyclists who know what it's like to ride a bike in the Triangle will walk you through selecting a bicycle based on how and where you ride, your body and abilities, and your budget. We'll have a Q&A, too, so you can feel confident in your bike selection and not intimidated by all of the options when you make your purchase.

ALL BICYCLE TRIPS EARN DOUBLE POINTS;
PLUS BONUS POINTS FOR NEW STRNC USERS

Learn more about GoPerks and STRNC 

Throughout May, cyclists who track their bike trips in the ShareTheRideNC (STRNC) Commute Calendar will earn DOUBLE points! That includes cycling trips that are part of your commute and cycling trips that are for exercise or fun. Each trip earns points to enter into prize drawings for gift cards to local bike shops, restaurants, small businesses, and local events. Cyclists can even sync their Strava, FitBit, and other apps to their accounts and automatically track trips. 

Plus, something special if you're new to STRNC—throughout May, all new users receive four bonus points in the Commute Calendar. Many GoPerks prizes require 5 points, so all you have to do is track one smart trip (bike, walk, transit, carpool, vanpool, or telework), and you'll earn enough points to enter into a prize drawing. It's free, it's fun, and it's local.
