So pretty.

People have often asked us for an easy way to track miles during 30DOB. We’re digging this iPhone/Android app because of how fun and casual it is.

You don’t even have to push a button to start tracking your miles — it automatically starts tracking for you. PLUS, it prompts you each day with clever motivational messages and directives and awards you trophies based on your achievements.

Because it’s ALMOST April, and we’re only just telling you about this app now — EEK! — we’re thinking of 2017 as our test run with Ride Report. Give it a try, let us know what you think, and let’s have fun biking together! …

Yeah, I know, this whole site is dedicated to getting you on your bike and riding every day in April. But, let’s be honest, this challenge isn’t for everyone. There are lots of reasons why people are not going to take part in 30 Days of Biking. Before you jump in and commit to this challenge, here are 10 reasons you may want to NOT take part in 30 Days of Biking.

  1. You may have to buy new clothes. Sad to say, but biking is likely to change your body shape … It may force you to buy a few new pieces of clothing or, if you don’t watch out, a whole new wardrobe.
