Explore your parks and public lands by bicycle on September 24 AND get entered in a random drawing to win an Adventure Cycling 40th anniversary branded Salsa Marrakesh touring bicycle. It’s free to register and we’ll send a Bike Your Park Day sticker to everyone who signs up. You must register for Bike Your Park Day by the end of today — September 5 — to be entered in the bike drawing.
September 24 is also National Public Lands Day, a free entrance day in many parks.
Visit BikeYourParkDay.org to fill out a simple registration form with information like name of park or public land, mileage, group size, and route. You will also be asked if you want to make your trip open to others to join or if you’d rather just go solo or with friends. If you want to make your ride open to others you’ll be asked to provide an email address so you can be contacted. Just over 1,000 rides are registered, making your odds of winning the bike ... pretty darn good.
Even if you don’t know all of the details about your Bike Your Park Day ride, enter what you do know now. You can always log back into your My Adventure Cycling account and edit your ride details later.
Bike Your Park Day rides can be with friends, family, or with a group. They can be on a separated bike path, a dirt road, singletrack mountain bike trail, on a rural road, or in an urban setting. You can visit any type of public lands, whether it’s a national or state park, monument or historic site, river, seashore, recreation area, preserve, forest, wildlife refuge, or parkway.
