The BikeMiles® Amazon Challenge - we did it!

The Amazon rainforest is (roughly) 6,000 miles away. Last month we challenged you all to get on your bike, log your journeys on BikeMiles® and collectively cycle to the Amazon 10 times. Well...we made it! Over 77,000 miles were logged, by 849 people, which actually equates to nearly 13 trips to the Amazon! Well done everyone!

This means that the top 100 journey loggers during the competition will be the worthy recipients of a bottle of Green Oil - the world’s greenest oil - as a token of thanks for taking part. We'll be in touch with the top 100 very soon to sort out delivery of your prizes, so please check your inboxes next week for further details.

We could list all the winners names here, but you’d be scrolling for a very long time. You can of course log into your BikeMiles® account and take a look at the National Leaderboard to scope out the top contributors if you'd like! Instead, we’ll leave you with this video of people cycling through the rainforest. Enjoy!
