Bike to Work Day Challenge

Bike to Work Day 2017 is Friday, May 19th! Registration will be active in April. The Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) and Bikeatoga are once again sponsoring the Capital Region Bike to Work Challenge for Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady Counties.

Trophies will be awarded in each county for the following categories. Winners will “own” the trophies until Bike to Work Day 2018.

  • Organization with the largest number of riders
  • Small organization with the highest percent participation (20 or fewer employees)
  • Organization over 20 employees with the highest percent participation
  • Person who rode the farthest.

The Municipal Challenge awards a trophy for the highest percent participation for any municipality in the region, in which the mayor or supervisor rode to work.

If you are holding an event for Bike to Work Day 2017, please use our contact form and we will update this page with your event beginning in April.

Bike to School Day

This year we will continue support for Bike to School day, May 10th. By county, the school (up to high school) with the most participating students will be awarded a trophy. A parent or teacher must register the school and report how many students rode a bicycle to school on May 10th. Or, schools can wait and celebrate Bike to School Day in conjunction with Bike to Work Day. Register now!

Note: Colleges and universities should participate under the Bike to Work Week.

Educational materials for kids (Sprocket Man comic book, Getting There activity book, and Chuggington safety activity book), and Capital Region Bicycle Commuter Guides are available upon request via the “contact us” link below. Schools may request items for Bike to School Day activities, regardless of participation in the Bike to School Challenge.
