Don't forget that your team needs to sign up for the Team Bike Challenge today to be able to record rides for every day in May as under the new rules, team members can only submit rides up to 7 days after the day of the ride.

It is possible for teams to sign up after today, but they will only be able to add rides that happened in the last 7 days before they signed up. It's still worth it to join the Team Bike Challenge after today as you can still win a $50 BART Ticket if you start a team with BART in it's name. Also, your points will still count towards your company's total points in the Company Bike Challenge even if you join after today.

But why wait, make sure all your bike rides in May count in the Team Bike Challenge by signing your team up today!
