From May 12 to May 16, the Bike to Work Challenge takes place. It is a weeklong competition to find the office in New York with the highest percentage of people who get to work by bike. All workplaces in the five boroughs are welcome to join the challenge, whether you have one employee or thousands.
Put your employees or co-workers to the test by challenging your team to log the most trips by bike during the week leading up to Bike to Work Day.

This Is New York: Kenneth Podziba, President and CEO of Bike New York
Meet the new head of one of the city’s largest bike organizations. Kenneth Podziba formerly spent time in the city administration as the city’s first sports commissioner. Now, as the head of the organization that plans the TD 5 Boro Bike Tour, the largest such event in the U.S., Podziba says he is approaching his job with a balanced mentality. “I always try to do the right thing because I believe in karma,” he said. “I trust that it will come back and things will work out.”
