Friday May 19th is National Bike to Work Day. Bikeatoga and CDTC are sponsoring the 9th annual Bike to Work Challenge. Companies and organizations with locations in Saratoga County are encouraged to form teams to compete for the following trophies:

  • Gear Head – highest percent participation for organizations with more than 20 employees
  • Chrome Crank – highest percent participation for organizations with 20 or fewer employees
  • Steer Head – largest number of riders
  • Golden Fork – longest bike commute

Last year, several hundred Saratoga County residents participated in the Bike to Work Challenge and left their cars at home for a day. Many riders reported that this event helped make biking to work a fun and healthy habit.

On Friday, May 19th there will be a free breakfast served at The Arts Center, located on the corner of Broadway and Spring Street in Saratoga Springs from 6:30 am – 9:00 am for all bike riders.
