Some FAQs

Posted Thursday, February 19th

Before the pledge opens on March 1, let’s tackle a few frequently asked questions.

1. Does spin class count?

Absolutely. We’d prefer you be outside, adventuring, but that exer_bike works in a pinch. Especially if you’re traveling.

2. Why April?

We chose April because, at least here in our home state of Minnesota, USA, April is the confluence of many seasons. We could get a blizzard, rain, sunshine, anything! It’s the perfect medium between the harshest of winter and the pleasant_est of summer.

3. I already bike every day. Why should I sign up?

Because we’re doing this together! Sharing our stories and posting photos and supporting each other. Some people see 30 Days of Biking as a reason to bike even farther every day than normal, just because it’s a group effort. Encourage people who aren’t as experienced as you are. Pass the love on.

4. What if I miss a day? Should I stop?

Nope. Keep riding.

5. Do you want me to stop biking once 30 Days of Biking ends?

Nope. Keep the streak alive.
