Yay Bikes Newsletter - Bike To Work Challenge Update

The latest from Yay Bikes! and the Bike To Work Challenge!

THE END IS NIGH, SWEET SWEET VICTORY IS WITHIN GRASP
There are just a few days left of the 2010 Challenge, so make sure you're logging your trips, proselytizing  about cycling to your coworkers, and, of course, riding your bike to work (yep, even in the rain!). There are just a few need-to-know tidbits to wrap up this year, so read on...

TEAM STANDINGS

Your team's standings are up today on The Challengewebsite. Check out how your team is doing and make a last-ditch effort to take your bracket by ensuring all trips are logged and registering more cyclists to participate! 
If you experience any problems with the website this week, contact us for assistance. The Challenge officially ends - and trips can no longer be entered - as of Thursday at 11:59pm.

  1. I call BS on the coffee stops today. There were none. I went out of my way to pass via several of the so-called points (which were, unfortunately not particularly well described nor bike friendly. Next year, make these at underpasses or trail junctions where we can find them PLEASE
