Bike to Work Day 2015 was Friday, May 15th! 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.
Trophies were 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 contributed a trophy for the highest percent participation for any municipality in the region, in which the mayor or supervisor rode to work.
This year, together with the New York Bicycling Coalition, we held Commuter Workshops in each city to hear from experienced bicycle commuters!
If you are holding an event for Bike to Work Day 2016, please use our contact form and we will update this page with your event beginning in April.
The Department for Environmental Conservation’s office in Albany once again hosted “Green Your Commute Day” with online registration for anyone commuting “green” to downtown Albany, with a Green Car Show, Local businesses, Give-aways, Bike shop, info on green commuting, and Downtown Albany info in Tricentennial Park mid-day on May 15th.
