StanisCruise operated by the Stanislaus Council of Governments (StanCOG) is hosting a Bike Month Challenge for residents living in the county. The challenge is a fun way to support good health and fitness, while improving air quality.
The city of Ceres is adding a twist for its residents by including a drawing to have lunch with Mayor Javier Lopez. Ceres residents who register for the Bike Month Challenge will be included in a drawing to have lunch with the mayor.
“I am always looking for avenues to embrace the residents of Ceres and the Bike Month campaign is a great means to promote a healthy lifestyle and to sit down one-to-one with a community member,” said the mayor. “I encourage the residents of Ceres to take part in this fun challenge which promotes the benefits of riding a bike and look forward to the opportunity to meet our residents.”
Individuals and organizations from across Stanislaus County are signing up for the Bike Month Challenge and showing their support for bicycling as part of the regional challenge. The month-long campaign encourages bicycling, fosters friendly competition, and demonstrates the benefits of riding more frequently. Participants are eligible to win a range of prizes, including a Specialized Turbo Como SL 4.0 e-bike, an Apple Watch, and $2,500 cash.
“As a fitness enthusiast and the StanCOG Chair, I am excited to bring the inaugural Bike Month Challenge to Stanislaus County and promote the benefits riding a bike can bring,” said Mayor Lopez.
This competition is free to join, register at https://www.lovetoride.net/staniscruise and start tracking trips.
