Bike to Work Week 2012 was a huge success in the Truckee Meadows!  Estimated benefits to our community and environment include*:

$2,716 saved through lower commute costs
193,500 calories or 35 lbs of fat burned
200 lbs of carbon monoxide and 8,095 lbs of carbon dioxide emissions eliminated.

*calculated assuming 5 mile average commute and one round trip per registered rider

Congratulations to all the participating businesses for participating in the Commuter Challenge and encouraging employees to commute to work!

Studies indicate that employees with active life styles are more productive and have lower health care costs and fewer absences from work.

Many thanks to everyone participating, including the local bike shops and coffee shops that are offering riding incentives in support of cycling to work and school.

Please continue to support the businesses that help make Bike to Work and School possible in our community.
