Every September, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance organizes the Bike Commute Challenge to encourage more people to try commuting by bike. The Challenge pits workplace against workplace – with bragging rights for the highest percentage of bicycle commutes during the month.
Last year the challenge attracted 11,745 riders from 1,395 organizations. Combined, they covered more than 1.3 million miles in September. Go to BTA’s website to register.
