2001: A Bike Odyssey
During Massachusetts Bike Week, Boston-area Transportation Management Associations will join the City of Boston's Transportation Department to sponsor 2001: A Bike Odyssey, a friendly corporate challenge designed to encourage employees and students to Bike-to-Work/School. This fun, healthy, non-polluting way to commute reduces traffic jams and eases the demand for on-site parking. Employees and students arrive healthy and awake!
How Does It Work?
To celebrate Bike Week and promote bike-commuting, institutions compete in the 2001: A Bike Odyssey by having employees and students register to Bike-to-Work/School at least one day during Bike Week, May 12th through May 20th.
Competing within size-categories, institutions win points for registered cyclists and Bonus Points for providing "Bike-Friendly" amenities on site.
