March is the best time to get out and ride your bike — lovely cool days, almond blossoms, egrets, and little baby lambs. That’s why everyone should sign up for the Davis Bike Club’s March Bicycle Madness. Choose your mileage goal and challenge yourself to ride your bike more than you thought possible – around town, around the county, around the world, to commute, for pleasure or to buy groceries at Target. How you get your miles is all up to you!
While you are logging miles, you will also be helping support bike education in local schools. Last year, the Davis Bike Club donated $320 to the Bike Campaign, which was matched with another $320 through Big Day of Giving for a grand total of $640! This year, we hope to donate even more money by not purchasing t-shirts
How Does March Madness Work?
Riders fill out an online application, set a mileage goal for the month of March, and pay a participation fee. The registration fee is $25.00 for adults and $11.00 for children. The minimum number of miles is 10 miles. There is no upper limit…
Riders then ride as much as they can during the month of March and keep track of all their bicycle miles online with the March Bicycle Madness Mileage Tracker.
To make sure all participants are covered by our insurance policy, we are requiring all March Madness
participants to be Davis Bike Club members. Learn about DBC membership here
- Mileage tracking is based on the honor system …on your honor you track and record the miles you ride
- Please use the tracker only if you have registered and paid the entry fee
