What trips count…

You commute everywhere! Your work commute isn’t your only option. Biking to the store? That’s a trip. Biking back from the store? That’s another trip. Congratulations, now you just have to log them!

Log your trips to a grocery store, restaurant, school, library, bank, park, friend’s house. work, or a meeting.

Let’s see how this works. To log 5 trips throughout my day, I might:

  1. Ride my bike to work
  2. Bike to a meeting in the next neighborhood
  3. Bike back to work from the meeting
  4. Ride my bike home
  5. Take my kids for a bike ride to the park and back
