Bike to Work Day (BTWD) makes it easy and fun to try bike commuting. In fact, BTWD has put more people on the road to bicycle commuting than any other event in the Bay Area. And if you’re a seasoned commuter, it’s a great way to celebrate your commitment to biking.
That’s not all. Bike commuting makes a big impact on the environment. It helps improve air quality across Bay Area communities and reduces automobile traffic congestion.
3 Fun Ways to get Involved
1. Register to be entered into a drawing for two great prizes. First prize is your choice of a bicycle from Public bikes – choose from their popular “C7” (left) or “V7” models.
Second prize is a set of Monkey lights from Monkeylectric!
2. Be part of the Team Bike Challenge! In 2014, almost 1,400 teams – made up of more than 9,600 riders – participated in the Challenge. Together, they rode almost 573,000 miles in one month! If you don’t already have a team, putting one together is easy. Just get 4 coworkers, friends or family members together (five riders total) and sign up. Then get ready to pedal during May, National Bike Month. Winners will be announced in June. Interested in a little friendly competition? Register for Team Bike Challenge here.
3. Recognize someone who inspires you to ride. There’s still time to nominate your favorite bike commuter as the Bike Commuter of the Year! Nominate your commuter today!
