Bike to Work Day Challenge

Bike to School Day

Bike to Work Day 2016 was Friday, May 20th! The Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) and Bikeatoga once again sponsored the Capital Region Bike to Work Challenge for Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady Counties.

Bikeatoga created this flyer to spread the word. Trophies were awarded in each county for the following categories. Winners will “own” the trophies until Bike to Work Day 2017.

  • 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.

This year we expanded support for Bike to School day, May 4th. By county, the school (up to high school) with the most participating students was awarded a trophy. A parent or teacher must register their school and report how many students rode a bicycle to school on May 4th. Or, schools can wait and celebrate Bike to School Day in conjunction with Bike to Work Day.

Note: Colleges and universities still participated 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.

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