Winter Bike To Work Day & VT Winter Bike/Walk Challenge!

The second annual Vermont Winter Bike/Walk Challenge will run from February 10th to the 21st!

This is an awesome opportunity for Vermonters to get outside during the winter and try out cold-weather biking and/or walking, and win prizes in the process! To take part, just record at least two non-recreational walk or bike trips during the challenge period in the Go! Vermont app. Multi-modal commutes that combine walking, biking, or running with transit also count towards the Challenge. If you record at least two trips you'll be entered for random drawings of prizes, including $25 gift cards to Darn Tough Socks, Outdoor Gear Exchange, and Gardener’s supply, and season passes to Local Motion’s Island Line Bike Ferry.

The Go! Vermont app can be downloaded from Google Play and Apple’s App Store. Also, note that Winter Bike to Work Day takes place during the Challenge—on February 14th from 8-9:30am in the UVM Bikes Co-op—giving UVM folks another reason to replace car trips by biking! Faculty and staff are invited to come by for coffee or tea, bagels, and free swag. Learn about the student-run Bike Co-op and what we are doing to promote active, sustainable transportation at our university. The first 12 bike commuters to show up will receive a FREE BIKE CAP! Terry Bikes will also be joining us and raffling off one of their high quality saddles!
