Bike to Work Day 2015 is Friday, May 15th! The Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) and Bikeatoga will once again sponsor 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 2016.
- 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.
In addition, this year the City of Schenectady will contribute a trophy for the highest percent participation for any municipality in the region, in which the mayor or supervisor rides to work.
This year, together with the New York Bicycling Coalition, we held Commuter Workshops in each city to hear from experienced bicycle commuters!
