The Denton County Transportation Authority and the North Central Texas Council of Governments are partnering in May to encourage that people ride bikes instead of driving.
The 2017 Bike Everywhere Challenge, which coincides with National Bike Month, makes Denton County residents who log their bike trips eligible for gift cards and other prizes. Participants can utilize cycle racks on DCTA buses and A-trains to get around the county, according to officials.
"Our goals for this challenge [are] to encourage all Denton County residents to ride their bike as alternative transportation to help increase their physical activity and reduce their carbon footprint," said Jim Cline, DCTA president.
