Bike Anchorage & AIA-Alaska 2014 Summer Bike, Walk & Bus Commuter Challenge
Wraps up Summer of Car-free Commuting
Bike Anchorage and AIA-Alaska’s fifth annual Summer Bike, Walk & Bus Commuter Challenge concluded at the end of August with huge success. This fun, free and friendly challenge between businesses, agencies, organizations, any and all places of employment, marked huge success this year by doubling the number of teams and participants competing. Over 120 teams competed with just shy of 1000 participants. A total of 138,990 miles were biked and walked. Add in the bus riders with 59,841 miles and the total comes to just under 200,000 miles commuted in Anchorage without using one’s car. And that’s just the people who signed up and logged their trips each day they commuted by bike, bus or foot.

Bicycle Commuters of Anchorage is now Bike Anchorage. After years working to make Anchorage more bicycle-friendly, we recognized that BCA was not representative of our work. To be more inclusive and better reflect our mission of making Anchorage bicycle-friendly for everyone and anyone, we have changed our name to Bike Anchorage. Our mission remains the same and our work, as defined through our 2014-2018 strategic plan, remains focused.
With our new website, you can find out what fun events we have planned, can sign-up to volunteer, and stay up-to-date on exciting news stories about biking in Anchorage--all in one place!
We look forward to getting more people involved in making Anchorage a more bicycle-friendly city, so get involved and stay tuned!
