The Executive Office of Transportation (EOT) MassRIDES program is offering a Go by Bike Challenge during this National Bike to Work Week, May 11 -17.
Employees of MassRIDES partner companies will join thousands of other cyclists across the country by tuning up their bicycles and trying a new commute.
“Bike to Work Week is an excellent opportunity to try a new, healthy commute option. Bicycling is convenient, good for the environment, good for your health and it saves you money,” says MassRIDES Project Manager, Kay Carson.
Participating bicyclists record their daily bicycling miles online and are entered to win prizes, including Landry’s Bicycles Gift Certificates, MassBike memberships, and cycling gear. Learn more about becoming a MassRIDES partner.
