Watch the First Team Bike Challenge Video Diary - Share Your Team's Story for a Chance to Win a Free Bike to Work Day T-shirt

Our first Team Bike Challenge Video Diary is about the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC )team Cal North Crew and the shared bicycle that brought them all together as a team. We'd like to thank Karin Betts at MTC for filming this first diary for us.  We'll be posting a new video diary each week and sharing other diaries sent to us by Team BIke Challenge teams throughout the region. Share your Team Bike Challenge video diary with us for a chance to win a free t-shirt. See below for more info.



Team Bike Challenge is underway! We have recruited several teams to film their own stories about biking and being on a team, and their videos will be posted here each week. Check back on Mondays to see what is new.

We also are interested in your video diaries of your experience biking to work and being on a team. Break out your video cameras to capture the excitement, fun and joy of biking. We will choose the best video each week throughout May, and post it here. Tell us your stories, and help encourage others to get out on their bikes! If we post your video, you will receive a free 2010 Bike to Work Day T-shirt. Posted videos become the property of MTC, and may be edited into other pieces promoting bicycling.

To submit your video to the contest, post it to youtube or another video share site and send us the link using this form. Make sure to title it Team Bike Challenge Video. Please identify the name of your team, and the names of people in the video. We will choose the winning video based on image quality, interesting content and picture/video composition. You may submit multiple entries and they are due by 5pm each Friday throughout May. Videos should be under 5 minutes in length, and not include any offensive language or behavior. And be safe! Don't ride your bike and try to record video or take pictures at the same time.

During the second week of Team Bike Challenge, we asked the teams we are following these questions.  Send us your video responses to them by 5pm Friday May 14th for your chance to win a free t-shirt.

  1. What do you like the most about biking to work?
  2. How much have you been riding your bike since Team Bike Challenge started?
  3. How does biking to work make you feel?
