If you rode your bike downtown this morning you might have noticed even more bikes on the streets than usual. Why? Because the BTA's 1oth Annual Bike Commute Challenge has brought hundreds of Portlanders out of their cars and onto their bikes. This event gets local companies competing against each other to see who can log the most bike commuting miles in the month of September.
It's free and any company can register. There are prizes for companies and individual riders (in case you work with a bunch of stiffs). There's really no reason not to enter, because you're probably riding to work already.
Don't let the 500 workplaces that have already registered have all the fun! It's not to late to register your company and start keeping track of your rides. Good luck!
