The Commuter Competition
The Commuter Competition is the heart of Bike Week; it represents an opportunity to encourage more students, staff, and faculty to commute by bike, as well as to thank everyone already riding to and from campus! Participation in the competition is free, all you have to do is return to bike.gatech.edu each day to log your mileage (it’ll only take a few seconds each time), and we’ll do all the rest. And remember, get your friends and coworkers to try out bike commuting; they can help your department have a better shot at winning one of the departmental awards!
We’re excited to be offering a variety of prizes from Regal Cinemas, Target, REI, Octane Coffee, Intown Bicycles, ORGT, the CRC, Rocky Mountain Pizza, and more for individual participants, including a special event t-shirt!
Everyone who participates will be entered in a random drawing for additional prizes, as well as being eligible for prizes based on your mileage, days ridden, etc. You could win gift cards, bike gear, apparel, or other great prizes!
The Departmental Prizes
As much as we want to see individuals riding, what we’re really hoping for is departments to come together and show their solidarity and commitment to being supportive and encouraging of their bike commuters. Every participant will note their department, and we’ll keep track of which departments have the most commuters and most miles.
