Bike Jam

Every September at UCCS we celebrate our favorite form of alternative and sustainable transportation - the bicycle! There are three opportunities for you to win great prizes: Bike Jam, Bike Month Challenge, and the year-long Pedal Perks.  For the month of September (actually September 5th to October 5th), we challenge students, faculty, and staff of UCCS to forego their cars and trucks and instead bike to campus, do leisure riding on the city trails, workout on the stationary bike at the Rec Center, or pedal to do your errands! We support any kind of bicycle riding but especially commuting to campus.

Register for Bike Month Challenge and Pedal Perks by going to  to sign up as a team. Winners will be contacted using the information provided on their Bike Journal profile after October 5th. The department or office team with the greatest number of commutes per person in the department will win the Traveling Trophy for one year, a field-to-plate cooking class provided by the Healthy Campus faculty and students, recognition on the Sustainability and Pedal Perks website, and huge bragging rights!  The department or office with the most collective miles will earn a free week of fitness classes through campus Recreation Center.

After you have registered on, you must complete this form to be eligible to win prizes: Every rider who signs up for the Bike Month Challenge and Pedal Perks on, and commutes to UCCS at least once during the month or accrues 100 total miles for the month, will be entered into a drawing for one of two commuter bicycles.

Happy pedaling and be safe!
