ATLANTIC MINE -- Bike enthusiasts Keren Tischler and Curt Webb of Atlantic Mine have, between them, already logged nearly 1000 miles on their bikes (even in the Keweenaw's long snow season) to reach the top 10 list of the 2013 National Bike Challenge’s warm-up period.

An article on the League of American Bicyclists blog says Tischler and Webb were inspired by this Challenge to use their bikes for "trips to town, work or just for fun." Their goal is to inspire others in their community to use bicycles more often for transportation as well as recreation and better health.*
The National Bike Challenge runs from May 1 to Sept. 30, 2013.
