There’s only one week left in the BTA’s Bike Commute Challenge, but don’t worry, you can still participate and record trips from all month. If you aren’t into the competition aspect of the challenge, it at least tells you interesting things like your commute rate, calories burned, and CO2 saved. You also get discounts at select bike shops after seven trips. Check it out, and please post your results in our comments. Don’t worry if you aren’t at 100%, or are barely even at 1% – be proud of what you do. This website isn’t called WeBikeEugene for nothing. Everyone is welcome.
Participating WBE “staff” totals as of Friday, Sept 24th:
Katura Reynolds – Team Mt. Pisgah Arboretum – 277 Miles, 100% Commute Rate (+92 miles since last week.)
Kendra Seager -Team 4J School District – 259 Miles, 100% Commute Rate (+72 miles since last week)
Mike Seager – Team 4J School District – 217 Miles, 100% Commute Rate (+72 miles since last week)
Shane MacRhodes – Team 4J School District – 120 Miles, 100% Commute Rate (+20 miles since last week)
Kendra and I are in second and third place, respectively, for all of 4J. Katura is beating all of 4J. Shane is smarter about picking where he lives.
Are you taking the BTA’s Bike Commute Challenge? It’s about halfway over (it runs through September), but you can still join in and record miles from earlier this month. Be sure to mark the days you don’t work as “non-work days” so they don’t affect your commute rate. Four WeBikeEugene “staffers” are taking the challenge – and challenge all of you to as well. Post your stats in the comments and be proud!
