That is what it’s all about!

More Rider Comments

“I broke my left pedal on yesterdays ride. I will blame uphill pedal torque and the wind. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! :-)” – OTR

“I used to ride regularly, but haven’t ridden my bike to work for 8 or 9 years!!! Since then I have thought about bike commuting, as it is a great use of my time especially with a couple of young kids, but never got my act together to do it. That is until now, and I couldn’t be more stoked! What a great way to be outside! Hope you are having a great day! Cheers.” – DCNR EcoCyclists

“Runnin’ reds and killin’ peds” – Premium Rush (2012) – DETR – Psychopaths

“How can there be a headwind in every direction that you turn?” – Allison MacKenzie

“Ready for some sunny weather🌞” – Redrock Dental Molarcyclers

“Oh the deep joy of a brisk morning ride to the south of town, as the sun rises on Freel Peak! (oh, and no traffic!)” – RCI Rowdies

“Half our team met at Schat’s and rode 4 miles to and from the office today then we all rode out to lunch. It was the first time some of them have ridden a bike that far in years and we laughed the whole time. Fun!” – Carson City Orthodontics

“My feet hurt” – USPS Goatheads

Corporate Challenge Wednesday

A couple Goatheads on their way to the office

The weather wasn’t too bad yesterday. At least it didn’t snow.  Below you’ll find the current Corporate Challenge results as of 7am Wednesday morning.  Not all results are in so the numbers may change quite a bit.

Commuter Comments:

LOVE the rain!! – RCI Rowdies

Dude! Where’s my car? –DETR Cyclepaths

Fun week no matter the weather! – Allison MacKenzie

Half our team met at Schat’s and rode 4 miles to and from the office today then we all rode out to lunch. It was the first time some of them have ridden a bike that far in years and we laughed the whole time. Fun! – Carson City Orthodontics 

 

On the Bike to Work Week Schedule tonight:

Ride of Silence

Wed, May 17th 7:00 pm
Telegraph Square

Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, but the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves. http://www.rideofsilence.org

Ride of Silence route: https://www.strava.com/routes/8726350

The results are combined.  An * indicates Private Business category

Looks like a tight competition with the NDOT Road Worriers (Okay, I made that name up but I think it’s pretty funny) and the Spoke Patrol.  Don’t count out the Rough Riders. They typically rally near the end of the week.

Sweet rides at the Allison MacKenzie bike rack.

In the Public Agency division we had a couple of surprises this year. The Rough Riders once again dominated the highest Mileage category with a total of 774.36. The surprise is Team OTR taking over the Average Team Miles category from the Rough Riders with an avg of 3.52. For the fourth year in a row the Cyclepaths have won the Most Trips category with 108 trips. Nice job everyone!

Bike to Work Week Party

lilian

Lilian reaching for an Appeal

We had a nice turnout at our annual party. Mikey mc’d the event keeping the attendees entertained.  Unfortunately the rain and lightning kept Incendio from performing outside.

Randy

Randy Gaa on the trike

Holden, Lilian, Elsa and Renee all placed in the Tricycle Time Trial while Keith Conrad CRUSHED Danny Miller in the Newsboy competition’s sudden death playoff.

Other winners of the night-Amanda Garcia won the cruiser bike at BTWW party. I’m sure we’ll see her riding it this Wednesday night.

Thank you to all our volunteers that made this event so much fun. And thank you to all of our Corporate Challengers. You make this a very fun and exiting event. A special thanks to Toby Welborn for keeping track of all your miles, trips, averages, calories and offsets. He’s motivated by hops so please by him a beer when you see him.
