What will be the rules for the 2011 Team Bike Challenge?

Last year the rules changed regarding "novices", which each team must have at least one of, so that any novice that had competed in a previous year could not be counted as such again. That limits small to medium size companies because they run out of "novices". Perhaps a new definition can be used this time. Any ideas?


Hey Andrew,

Blah, blah, blah... Can you change the medal colors for next year? Also is it possible to make the points awarded totally random? Maybe you get 1 billion points for looking at your bike, yet get docked 500 points for riding in a crazy thunder storm, and the next time you ride to work someone pops your tire... ooooh, Pedal Derby anyone?!!!! I'm also thinking we could have a "Drive To Work Challenge" in June to offset the Carbon offset from May's BTW Challenge? One more suggestion...

Keep up the awesome work! Don't listen to the complainers. I hope you can make it tougher for next year...(although we've pretty much exhausted the novices at the company!)

Commuting to workout

Andrew Casteel —

Commuters by the hundreds took two wheels to work and school on Thursday as part of the 16th annual Bike to Work Day in Sonoma County.

"We have 335, a little bit up from last year," said Santa Rosa transportation planner Mike Ivory, who was counting bicyclists at Santa Rosa City Hall, where booths were set up for food, drink and information. "The people who did come in were totally stoked. At 7:30 we had a crowd of 200 people here, a real party atmosphere."

May is National Bike Month, and Thursday, May 13th marks Sonoma County’s 16th annual Bike to Work Day, a celebration of bicycling as a healthy, fun and viable form of everyday transportation.

“Whether you want to save money, improve your health, or protect the environment,” says Sandra Lupien, Bike to Work Coordinator at Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, “biking to work is a great way to do it. Almost everyone can bike to work at least some of the time, and Bike to Work Day is the perfect time to get started.”

Bike to Work Day 2010

The County of Sonoma is hosting an Energizer Station Thursday May 13th from 6:00-9:00 AM. We are excited to do what we can to promote a healthy lifestyle. Bike to work week is not just about bike riders. It is also about all forms of alternative transportation.

We'll have members of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors flipping pancakes and gifts for all who find other ways to get to work than driving alone in a car.
