12th Annual Midland Commute by Bike Challenge!

Due to the restrictions for so many people to work from home in 2020, the BTWW challenge was cancelled this year, but we'll be back in May of 2021!

The competition is expanding to included more organizations, with prizes balanced for organizations with any number of employees 

In 2019, the Corteva employees logged the highest percentage of commutes by bike, will MidMichigan Health get the trophy back this year, or will another group wrest the trophy from them in 2020?

There are many compelling reasons to start bicycle commuting:Information courtesy of Rydoze. 
  1. It’s Healthy 
  2. Benefits the Environment
  3. You Save Money
  4. Social Benefits
  5. Transport Benefits
  6. Sports Benefits
  7. Personal Benefits
A local Girl Scout working on her Eco Trekker Badge also pointed out a great resource for The Benefits of Bicycling and Environmentally Friendly Transportation that's worth taking a look at.

Many people feel that there's not a good route or method to get from home to work and back. Just because the rail-trail doesn't lead from my driveway to my workplace, doesn't mean that I can't get there safely and stress-free.
