Bike Anchorage is a volunteer-driven organization, and ultimately we need your help to be successful in our mission to make Anchorage more bicycle friendly. Come out to our events!
When Anchorage commutes by bike, foot, or bus we are all better off. Fewer single occupant vehicles on the road means less congestion, noise, and pollution. Plus, if you pick an active commute, you're healthier and more productive at work.
Every time you log a bike, walk, or transit commute, your network gets points. The winning small, medium, and large networks can look forward to sparkling trophies at the Golden Sprocket Awards in early October!
As if that wasn't enough, every time you log a trip, you are entered into a drawing for some amazing prizes!
The challenge kicks off on Bike to Work Day and runs through the end of September. Everyone is automatically added to this challenge, so all you have to do is log trips and recruit your friends and coworkers.
Here's to an active summer, Anchorage! More info here.
