Company Bike Challenge

*NOTE: We are still solidifying details for BTWD 2018. Please use this page as a reference for now and we’ll have information updated for 2018 soon!

The Company Bike Challenge is a fun and friendly cycling competition among companies throughout the Bay Area that encourages friends and colleagues to commute by bike during the month of May. Cyclists competing in the Team Bike Challenge will earn points for their team and company every time they ride their bike to work, the park, or any other destination. It’s also another great way to show other companies in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties that you are a commuting champion.

To compete, individuals sign up on the Team Bike Challenge registration page and choose their company from a pull-down menu. Points will then be counted toward that company. There are three categories for companies, and the company with the highest point total in each category wins!

For complete rules and to register your company, visit Company Bike Challenge participants need only sign up and join their company. You can also join as a team for the Team Bike Challenge if you’d like.

Why your company should compete:

  • Exercise increases energy levels and relieves stress. The greater the number of participants in your company, the more the company will benefit from the productivity increase associated with physical activity.
  • Everyone works together. Competition is an excellent way to train the group skills that your company thrives on. And you don’t have to wait until the next team-building exercise retreat.
  • You have a great company! The Company Bike Challenge is your opportunity to show the rest of Silicon Valley.
  • Give your competitors a ride for their money while letting your employees have another thing to boast about.
