Last week, I opened my work email and received an invite from a co-worker to ride into work together during Bike to Work Week. Or so I thought.
My colleague wanted my help to organize a company-sponsored, week-long Bike to Work Week event. We made the pitch to HR later that day and got a thumbs-up. Our employer was willing to print posters, brochures, give employees a secure place for their bicycles, and sponsor goody bags and a gift certificate to a bicycle store for one lucky bike rider.
While we are fortunate enough to work for a company that truly cares for its employees, it is the two of us enthused cyclists driving this event. This year will be a learning experience for us. We have no idea how many people will join us, but if we can coax even just 5%-10% of our co-workers to try this out, we’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment.
How will YOU celebrate Bike to Work with people you spend most of your time with?
