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?
