All rides count! Errands-yup. Rides with my kids in the cul de sac? Yup. Don't I have to ride to work too? NO! Rides to work count, but are not required. Think about it. If you rode to work, you probably could save a lot of money, not need to go to the gym, and be in better mental health. Can I ride on a trail? Of course. Take your bike out of the garage and get 20 points if you ride it.
