This bike challenge is fun and motivational! At my age, I need a constant incentive to exercise. Cycling is an activity that I love doing. It is a basic activity with dual purpose: exercise and transportation;
Here are a couple of links which for me are just added incentive to get out there and ride...

Great stuff. Over here in Switzerland they have a national challenge "Bike to work" where companies compete against each other to see who has the most avid bike commuters. Each company enlists multiple teams of 4 that compete against each other (e-bikes allowed)... There are prizes for teams, companies, and individuals that cover the greatest number of kilometers...

The prizes look great this year. You can win an e-bike, ortlieb panniers, etc. In total, they're giving out 100,000 Swiss francs worth of prizes. Even people who aren't great cyclists can win (as many prizes are drawn on a lottery type basis).

These are the goodies you can win:
