BTWW Mileage Midweek Report and 2012 ‘Coveted’ Golden Helmet Awards
Great job bike commuters, there are over 100 Driftless Region Bike To Work Week commuters logging their commute miles on the DRBC mileage tracker, totaling over 2000 miles to date. If you have not yet logged your BTWW miles, log them here. Logging your miles, no matter how small, contributes to the total Bike To Work Week mileage and lets local people, governments, businesses, and organizations realize how bike commuters impact the region.
This is our 5th year awarding the ‘Coveted’ Golden Helmet Awards, comprising of four categories: 1) Bike To Worship – highest participation, 2) Most Participants, 3) Highest % Participants with companies over 100 employees, 4) Highest % Participants with companies 100 employees or less. The tie-breaker in all categories is total mileage. It’s still not too late for your company to participate! For example, if you have 101 employees in your company, and 1/2 of them rode their bikes to work, and logged their mileage on Fri., before 5 PM, your company would most likely win a ‘Coveted’ Golden Helmet Award. It’s a good thing your company still has three days remaining to pull off an upset of the perennial ‘Coveted’ Golden Helmet Award Winners: SAP, Trane, and Downtown Mainstreet, Inc. Look at the leaderboards below and see if you can motivate more of your colleagues to ride their bike to work.
