* 2011 Group Helath Commute Challange is May 1-31
Students, faculty and staff are invited to join the 2011 Shoreline Community College Biking Dolphins. During May, National Bike Month, you are invited to join one of the biggest bike commuter events on the west coast: the 2011 Group Health Commute Challenge. Teams of riders commit to commuting by bicycle at least four times during the month of May, competing in various categories for various prizes.
Last year, 723 organizations participated with 1,677 teams, 10,375 riders, 75,331 commute trips made and 1,083,208 miles biked.
Shoreline CC had three teams and 30 riders: "Biking Dolphins Yellow, Green and Chartreuse. Together they logged 3010 miles riding a total of 337 trips during May and ranked 69th overall (out of 723 teams) and 1st among all community colleges. Help us beat last year's great results! Participate! We can have as many teams as we want!
Each team member commits to ride to work at least four times during the month of May. But this is a contest; the more times they ride (up to five times per week) the higher our team's standing! More detailed information is available at the website. Read about last year's team in the Crosstown Traffic News.
NEW this year! We are tying the Bike to Work Challenge with the May Food Drive, collecting food donations based on the number of trips we make to work on our bikes. Please consider sponsoring one or more of our teams and supporting the Food Drive. Watch for pledge sheets in work areas and help us do even more good by collecting food donations for Shoreline kids. For more information on the food drive, please contact Amber Skidmore at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 6690.
