Every September, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance sponsors a Bike Commute Challenge for Portland area businesses and organizations, according to Pat Ell, Moreau Center. They challenge groups (schools, business, departments) to commute by bike for the month of September. Ell would like to challenge all other UP departments and offices to take part in this year’s Bike Commute Challenge. “Even though it may be impossible for any other offices to top the incredible stats put up by the Moreau Center,” says Ell, “I encourage you to challenge your coworkers to commute by bike – it is more healthy, more fun, and more environmentally sustainable than commuting by automobile.”
More information is available at http://tinyurl.com/ot8qv6c. When people log in, they will find a tool to log miles, which also estimates the CO2 that a bicyclist has not contributed to the atmosphere. For more information contact Ell at 7132 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
