Silver Chain Challenge relaunches in June, 2017

June marks the 4th year of the Silver Chain Challenge, that friendly competition between Renfrew and Lanark Counties to see who can log the most kilometres of active transportation in the month of June. This year, the County of Renfrew has come on board as an official sponsor.

It's fun and easy to log your klicks. Every time you cycle or hike in June, go to www.silverchainchallenge.ca and record the details. Data from the two counties is tabulated, with allowances for differing populations and geography. Last year, Renfrew won, but it was close! Please join the fun.
