2022 Ride Smart Challenge
April 20, 2022 - May 4, 2022
Join RIDE Solutions in taking 1,000 drive-alone trips off the road this spring by taking the Ride Smart Challenge!
Bike, walk, carpool, vanpool, take the bus, or telework instead of driving alone for trips between April 20 and May 5. Every trip counts – your telecommute to work, your bike trip to the grocery store, your bus trip to see a friend: every mile taken off the road helps!
Every trip you log brings us closer to 1,000 trips region-wide in two weeks. And every trip also earns you points you can cash in for valuable rewards, as well as the chance to win prize drawings for RIDE Solutions swag, gift certificates, and more! Plus, the individual who logs the most trips will win a $100 gift card.
Finally, area organizations will be competing to log the most total trips and most trips by mode. Every time you log a trip, it counts towards your organization’s race. So let’s see who leads the pack by the end of the two weeks!
How does it work?
Easy! Download the RIDE Solutions app or register/log in and start logging your trips – that’s all there is to it! We will send event progress updates to all members registered during the event period, and every trip you log automatically counts towards your organization’s race.
You’ll earn points like you always have, plus we’ll draw randomly each week from everyone who’s logged a trip for local prizes.

Why Ride Smart?
Every mile not driven has benefits that impact us right here in central and southwest Virginia:
- Reduce vehicle emissions that can cause smog and induce health problems in our most vulnerable populations.
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions – every gallon of gas not burned saves about 24 lbs of greenhouse gases
- About $0.90 of every $1 spent on gas leaves the local economy. Driving less and walking, biking, carpooling, and taking transit more means more money stays in our local economy
