Silver Chain Challenge Day
Mayor Steve Ferguson is calling on the community to step up in a quest to win a second consecutive Silver Chain Challenge as the most active community in Eastern Ontario!
Let’s get out today and log some kilometers! Whether you travel by bike, foot or wheels, log your distance and we’ll be on our way another Prince Edward County win in 2022!
The Silver Chain Challenge began seven years ago with the goal of inspiring and promoting engaged, active, safe, and healthier communities. Over the last couple of years, the challenge has expanded beyond a competition between Lanark and Renfrew counties to include all 13 counties within Eastern Ontario.
From June 1-30, residents can log the kilometres they have travelled by bike or on foot. A real-time bar graph of kilometres clocked will be displayed online showing which municipality is the most active. The community with the most kilometres at the end of the month will receive the Silver Chain and bragging rights.
Residents of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds can participate in this initiative. Register today and start clocking your kilometres. With benefits to mental and physical health, we will see a healthier and stronger community and economy.
The Silver Chain Challenge promotes healthy and safe active transportation. Be visible when you bike, walk, run or wheel on our roads and trails. Learn the rules of the road, wear a cycling appropriate helmet and find out more about safety for cyclists of all ages.
