Sneak peek at Bike Commute Challenge results

The BTA will unveil the full results of this year’s Bike Commute Challenge at a celebration party tonight.

I’ve been nagging their events and outreach director Michelle Poyourow for several days to give us a sneak peek into the much-anticipated results. She finally broke down and gave in (thanks Michelle!). She’s saving the full results for the party, but here are a few teasers…

Category winners include:

  • The BTA: They remain unbeaten in their category…as it should be!
  • Team Estrogen: According to Michelle they, “came out of nowhwere and whupped everyone!”
  • King Cycle Group (Chris King Precision Components)
  • New Seasons: They “dominated” their category, taking three of the top four spots.

Other factoids from Michelle:

For the full lowdown, you’ll have to wait for the official press release or better yet, attend tonight’s party at Ecotrust (721 NW 9th) from 5-7pm.

Congratulations to everyone who gave a little more effort to ride to work during the Bike Commute Challenge and thanks to the BTA for putting together such a healthy competition!

Sadly, my attempts to get folks at my firm to participate were less than spectacular. Three of us (out of 94) did it, and we three ride our bikes to work every day, regardless. One other attorney rode in one day, but by doing so exacerbated an injury and so now is off her bike indefinitely. I take some solace in that at least most of our staff use public transportation instead of cars, but I wish that I could have convinced more people to try riding. I offered to ride with them or to map out the safest route for them, but no takers.
