Whether you’re an avid bike rider that has pedaled to work for years, or a newbie that is ready to experience the joys of beating rush hour traffic, the Bike to Work Challenge is all about trying a greener and healthier way to get around. Some people ride all the way into work. Others ride just to the bus stop or train station. In fact, at least part of more than 20,000 commutes each week around the Atlanta region happen on a bicycle.
Compete for Prizes and Bragging Rights
Throughout the month of October, individual commuters and teams of two to five people will earn points by riding their bikes to work, participating in bike seminars and instructional classes, and submitting photos for an online contest. You can keep track of how many miles you’ve ridden and compete for cool prizes like Patagonia rain jackets and dry-fit jerseys, not to mention bragging rights on the leader board.
Participants who try a pedal-powered commute for the first time will earn bonus points as an individual or for their team. Whether you challenge a friend, a co-worker or just yourself, grab your commute by the handlebars and register now at www.ATLBikeToWork.org. Head over to the site quickly — the first 100 people to register receive a REI-branded water bottle.
