The European Commission is seeking local coordinators to promote and organise the Social Biking Challenge in their city. The local coordinator who organises the most successful local Social Biking Challenge will be rewarded at the BeActive Awards Gala in Budapest on 18 October 2019.
The European Commission is launching its Social Biking Challenge across Europe aiming to encourage cycling as a social habit. The challenge will start on 16 September 2019, coinciding with the beginning of EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK, running alongside the European Week of Sports and finishing on 6 October.
The Social Biking project (S-b) wants to motivate European citizens to be more physically active and use more environmentally sustainable forms of transport. It is an internet based intervention project, coordinated by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, designed to collect primary data related to biking and social networks and identify the most efficient social-based incentives for physical activity. The project is based on a tracking app for bikers, the BikePrints app, available in Google Play
