News: October Bike to Work Challenge
Power to the Pedals! Participate in Metro Atlanta’s First-Ever Bike to Work Challenge- October 2012.
Whether you’re an avid bike rider or even if you haven’t pulled your bike out in a while, this event is all about trying a greener and healthier way to get around and win prizes for doing so. Some people ride all the way into work. Others ride just to the bus stop or train station. In fact, more than 20,000 commute trips each week around the Atlanta region happen on a bicycle.
The Bike to Work Challenge runs from October 1-28. Compete as an individual or in teams of 2-5 cyclists (teams must include at least one new bike commuter). You can keep track of how many miles you’ve ridden and compete for prizes, not to mention bragging rights on the leader board. Points for logged trips are not based on distance, so you can earn points even if you ride your bike for a portion of your commute (e.g., if you ride to MARTA). Prizes include REI gift cards, bicycle commuter bags and other cool stuff.
Whether you challenge a friend, a co-worker or just yourself, let’s make sure that Emory bicycle commuters are counted in the challenge! Register now at www.ATLBikeToWork.org. Register now at www.ATLBikeToWork.org.
