Explore Brentwood & Oakley During the Summer Bike Challenge

June 22, 2017

Alternative transportation is a growing trend in many communities, including Brentwood and Oakley in East Contra Costa County. As more people embrace healthier living within urban settings, riding a bike has become more common. Within Brentwood and Oakley there are extensive bike trails connecting parks, schools and shopping areas together, making it easier than ever to get around on two wheels. For the 5th year running, 511 Contra Costa, a local organization dedicated to safe, alternate transport options, has put together the Summer Bike Challenge.

Brentwood has been a host city for the challenge previously, but this year the challenge is expanding to include Oakley as well. As reported in the East Bay Times, the Summer Bike Challenge is a self-run program designed to encourage residents to explore various neighborhoods and amenities by bike. In doing so, the hope is more people will embrace using non-motorized transportation more often, which is a big plus for our environment and the community at large.

Once the card is completed and turned in, it is added to a raffle drawing for an iPad Mini tablet. Other benefits of the challenge include discovering where you can ride a bike to get some errands done, new routes to bike to school safely, or even a gem of a park you have never been to.

The Summer Bike Challenge highlights some of the best recreation opportunities we have in Brentwood and Oakley, such as direct access to the Big Break Regional Shoreline Trail, and Heron Park with its 5-Star Kaboom! Play Rating, and a unique piece of public art. There are also fun giveaways at various locations throughout the summer, another incentive to complete the challenge.
