Resolve to Ride: Winter is a fine time to ride a bicycle
Does your New Year's resolution include getting healthier or fitter?
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is reminding everyone that winter is a great time to ride your bike - despite temperatures a little cooler, skies a little grayer, with a little more moisture in the air. We're also giving people a boost to their new year's resolution now via our #resolve2ride campaign and Winter Cruise month.
From now until January 6th we want you to let us know that you'll ride your bikes this winter. Whether you'll pledge to hop on when it's a little drier (say, the last two months or so) or at least once a week, we want to hear your winter bike resolutions.
On Facebook, Twitter (@pbotactive), or Instagram (@pbotactive) tell us that you'll resolve to ride this winter. And be sure to include the #Resolve2Ride hashtag so we can find your post. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us your reason.
Our favorite response will win a $25 gift card to the bike shop of your choice. Three runners-up will receive a Winter Cruise send-off package that includes PBOT’s coveted bike map bandanna, a reflective keep-your-pants-out-of-your-chain leg band, a seat cover for the occassional drizzle, a bike light, and more!
So tell the world why you bike in winter for a chance to win – and keep on cruising!

And remember, we'll have more prize giveaways through January as you enjoy your #WinterCruise.
