Philly Bike Month Commuter Challenge Winners

The Bicycle Coalition's first Commuter Challenge was a huge success, and we'd like to thank all the participants and prize donors! Over 40 participants logged 762 trips by bicycle and rode 3,129 miles for those trips (the mile count doesn't include recreational rides). While those numbers are pretty exciting, we know that a lot more people than that biked in Philly during May, and we're looking forward to an even more exciting (and competitive) Commuter Challenge next year!

Here are this year's winners and their prizes. If you're a winner, please stop by our office or email to collect your prize:
