At the end of the week, cyclists will be asked to record their bicycle commute rides. Each recorded ride will serve as an entry into a prize drawing held at the end of the week. The first 50 participants to submit a completed tracking log will receive a bicycle messenger bag. All participants will receive a Certificate of Participation.  

Routing assistance is available for those unsure of the best roads to travel to their worksite.
