This week saw a lot of new bench marks set for future Bike To Work Week participation.
Patrick Pittenger, Transportation Manager for Carson City, reported that 60 free bus rides were given to bicyclists throughout the week by JAC. Thanks JAC!
In what are very impressive numbers, Carson City Corporate Challengers completed 1,240 trips by bicycle or by walking. And there were 3,978.25 miles walked or ridden through the week. Wow!
Congratulations, and thank you to all who participated in the Bike To Work Week Corporate Challenge. This was by far our most successful, fun, and exciting Corporate Challenge ever!!
