For the 12th year running, the Tour de Redmond bicycle community challenge returns, this year taking place June 1 to July 31.

Organized by the Greater Redmond Transportation Management Association, the tour takes place every summer as a way to encourage cyclists of all abilities to get outdoors, reduce traffic, and have fun, all while participating in an activity that helps improve overall health.

This year, Greater Redmond Transportation Management Association has partnered with to offer cyclists features like automatic ride tracking and Bike University, a resource that provides solutions to common problems that can prevent people from riding their bikes.

For the serious cyclist, there also are opportunities to go head-to-head with the competition for a chance to win prizes.

Cyclists interested in participating in the 12th annual Tour de Redmond bicycle community challenge can do so by registering online at
