Take the Bike Commute Challenge and earn points for your campus

Story by

Join your campus team to participate in the Annual Bike Commute Challenge! The Bicycle Commute Challenge runs through the entire month of September. If you ride just two trips, by Sept. 14 you’ll be entered in a drawing for great prizes. If you ride at least 5 times, you’ll be entered again on Sept. 21. At the end of the month, even if you just rode once you’ll be entered in a separate raffle. And there’s a big awards party (with free pizza and beer) for all competitors after the challenge ends- it’s a bunch of fun!

This year PCC is not only competing against other Portland workplaces, but is also competing between PCC campuses to see who can have the most new riders and highest percentage of participation! If this sounds like great motivation to bike to work, you can sign up to join your campus team at http://www.bikecommutechallenge.com. Scroll down on the drop down menu to find your campus.

If you’d like to brush up on your skills, here are some workshops in the area: http://www.bta4bikes.org/resources/commute101.php. These workshops are free during the month of September.
