Sign Up and Celebrate the Business Commute Challenge!

Business Commute Challenge

PartyTomorrow is the kick-off party for the Business Commute Challenge…sign up now and join the fun!! It’s like a pre-kick off for May is Bike Month.

The Challenge takes place May 9-15 and is a friendly competition – workplace against workplace – to see who can walk, bike, bus, carpool, or telework during the week. The workplace with the most participation wins (based on size).

Individual participants can win too! The more you participate the bigger the prize you have a chance to win. Prizes include a Breezer bike, one night stay at Three Rivers Casino with golf for two at Ocean Dunes, one night at Riverhouse in Bend, Party bus tour and tasting for 20 at Agrarian Ale, gift certificates to local restaurants, and more!

Join the BCC Kick-off Party tomorrow (April 30), 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm at Oakshire Brewing at 207 Madison Ave. Live music, prizes, free slice of pizza and a $1 off a beverage, free bike tune-ups from Patchwork Repair, and more!

Whether you are a bike rider, thinking about trying the bus for your commute, or you want to have fun with your co-workers…this Challenge is for you!

The 2014 Business Commute Challenge is an event coordinated by Point2point at Lane Transit District.

LiveMove Bike Counter Fundraiser

We’re not dead, we’re just resting under a pile of leaves.
Sure it’s a bit wet and slippery out there, so what get out and ride. Here’s a good opportunity to ride AND support LiveMove’s fundraiser at Oakshire tomorrow:

Hi BikeInShapers,

Ever wonder what a parakeet dressed as pug looks like? Or for that matter, how a pug dressed in parakeet suit for Halloween appears? Well, the answer is probably not in this shape. 🙂

On Wednesday, let’s support LiveMove’s Oakshire Fundraiser to get a bike counter installed on 13th & Kincaid. It’s a pricey ambition, so why not throw down a couple pints to move the needle:

We’ll meet at Oakshire at 7pm, this Wednesday Oct. 29th and ride in the shape of the Pugakeet!

See you there or…trick instead of treat!
