Summer Bike Challenge Returns to Pleasant Hill!

511 Contra Costa’s second annual Summer Bike Challenge returns to Pleasant Hill. The program, also expanded into Martinez, begins in June and runs through August. Free and open to everyone, the Summer Bike Challenge encourages residents to explore their hometown from the seat of a bicycle. Cross off squares by riding to parks, schools, downtown, City Hall, the library, farmers’ market, and a neighboring city to complete the challenge. Participants can pick up free treats from select locations on certain dates, and those who complete at least 12 squares can enter to win the iPad Mini grand prize drawing.

Pick up your Pleasant Hill Challenge Card in person at the Pleasant Hill Library; Teen, Senior, and Community Centers; Pleasant Hill Pool; Pleasant Hill City Hall; Crescent Drive Coco Swirl; YMCA; or online at or
