Bike to Work
Brief Description Bike to Work (Do práce na kole) is a team competition for employees of companies and other entities. Teams of at least 2 and maximum of 5 members who plan to regularly bike to work throughout (each) May are eligible to join the competition. The Bike to Work competition offers several competition categories including the number and total length of bike trips, and also targets employers because they can significantly motivate their employees to use bicycles in order to commute to work. Each participant receives a T-shirt (made from organic cotton) with a logo of the competition. The competition is accompanied by various activities promoting the goals of the competition – benefits of cycling to work – and making the competition richer and more vibrant. Last year’s competition (i.e. 2016) has seen a substantial growth both in number of participants (approximately by 1/3) representing 600 new companies, and also 4 more cities have joined. Gradually, the Bike to Work has become a country-wide campaign that motivates people to change their commuting mode and potentially also their lifestyle to the benefit of healthier environment and better quality of life in Czech cities.
