Get Out and Bike: Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin “Get Up & Ride Challenge”

Posted on May 17, 2011 by Adam Ziskin

O2 is sponsoring The Get Up & Ride Wisconsin Bike Challenge. This event is a simple way for Wisconsin Businesses to encourage all the benefits of cycling.  It’s a fun way to track both commuting and recreational bicycle trips.  There are real-time reports that show the businesses progress on total number of bike miles, average miles biked per employee, and percentage of work base participating.

  • Workplaces are invited to sign-up now at www.challenge.bfw.org
  • Employees will begin tracking their bicycle trips May16.
  • The first set of monthly prizes will be given away June 30.

At any time throughout the Challenge, business representatives can log-in to the site for updates and progress reports.  Why doesn’t every state do this?  There needs to be a national contest from border to border to see who has the best company bike participation.  Who’s with me?
