Bike The Year 2023
Fueled By The Feed
How far can you bike in 2023? We've officially expanded the challenge that started nine years ago as Run The Year into all forms of exercise! This annual fitness challenge motivates your biking all year long. The goal is simple: cover the year in miles on your bike, customize your goal, and even divide the miles with a team. You can create a team of up to 100 people to see how many times you can bike the year together! Register for the Run The Year challenge, then choose biking miles in the tracker, and you can even add additional movement to your challenge if you need some variety - all forms of distance-based exercise count!
Customize Your Challenge Package
1Cover the miles your way
Bike outside, to work, on your trainer, on the trails. Take your wheels wherever they lead you! If you want to add in miles from other activities, that's cool too! There’s a simple button inside the tracker you can toggle on if you’d like to keep a tally of those miles.
2Teams of up to 100
We’ve upped the limit on team sizes…wayyyy up! Want to form a team with 10 people? Do it! 20? Good to go! 100?! Hey, it's your challenge! Now that you can have as many people as you want on your team, you can double, triple, or even 10x your miles, earning new badges as you reach bigger milestones.
3Private community on new RTE platform
We've built you a new community platform to connect with other participants! This community is free from ads, noise, and all other nonsense so you can be fully vested in your bike the year journey, congratulate each other on achievements, find a team, and ask for recommendations.

What Our Participants Are Saying
Over the years, since 2015, I have become friends, in person and online, with some amazing people including the team at Run the Edge who have welcomed my wife and me to their offices multiple times…Thank you, Run The Edge, for creating these challenges!!!
Jason Tregler, 8-year participant
My 33 years of running have been accentuated by the Team at “Run The Edge”! The challenges that they have designed since 2015, have given me added motivation…I have had my share of getting into a rut. When this happens, I am spurred on by one of my many Run The Edge Challenges!
Marilyn Simmons Bowe, 8-year participant
...I've run one mile minimum daily since then and I owe it all to RTY!!!!! I love my RTY family and I'm excited that I've inspired my niece to give it a go. Also, I'm obese and I appreciate the all encompassing inclusion of our group, I run slow as heck - but I run, nonetheless.
Tracy Valdez, 7-year participant
This, this post right here, and the others like this, the encouragement, motivation and constant positivity is why Run the Edge is my #1 running/walking/movement inspiring company that I follow, participate with and wrap myself up, proudly, in your swag. To the entire RTE team, thank you. Thank you!!
Deena Cota, 3-year participant
The community y’all have created is so much more than a run challenge. We are so thankful for y'all, and for the friendships created because of you. For posterity - Thank You for your quick replies and all your help! And if no-one’s told you lately, You Rock!!!

Every participant gets access to the tracker (see video) for both individual AND team miles! Updated for 2023, you can create teams of up to 100 and set HUGE goals of up to 10X the year (set your team goal in the tracker to be anywhere from 2023 - 20,230 miles!). You can track your own progress AND be on a team at the same time!
Also new: cover the miles your way with settings that allow you to choose what activities count to get in the miles (bike the year, swim the year, just MOVE!). PLUS, we are launching a NEW custom private community app (we think you'll love it!).
The tracker allows you to manually enter miles or sync with Garmin, Fitbit, Apple Watch, and Strava. You also get access to our optional private Facebook community.
Teams are a great way to take the challenge with up to 100 people!
Divide the miles any way you like and conquer the challenge together. (YES, teams of up to 100 people!)
Each team member must register individually. You do not need to specify that you are on a team when you register.
The hardest part is coming up with an awesome team name!
Here is a video that shows you how teams works: See Teams Video
You can take the challenge individually AND be on a team at the same time. The tracker will keep track of your team and individual miles.
