It’s That Time of Year
Why? We are all about promoting active, sustainable, and healthy forms of transportation to work, to play, for errands, and just to get outside. Biking, walking, running, and rolling (skateboard, rollerblades, scooters…) provide many different benefits; you can get fresh air, have fun, burn calories, reduce stress, save money, reduce your environmental impact, get helmet hair, and even get a great tan.
What’s new? This years challenge is three weeks long and kicks off with the GoGallatin Challenge opening day coffee break at all 3 Cafe M locations in Gallatin Valley. Stop by for free coffee and info on how to get involved throughout the challenge. The GoGallatin Challenge finishes on Bike to Work Day which is May 20th. In addition to the challenge and Bike to Work Day, we are partnering with the Gallatin Valley Bike Club for the 1st annual Festival of Bikes. As always, this is a team challenge but if you don’t have a team or don’t want to join a team, you can still participate in the challenge. If you want to fly solo and track your trips, create an account, sign-up for the challenge and start logging. You will not be eligible for the Team Trophies but will be eligible to win other sweet prizes.
What’s the game? Create and account on GoGallatin.org, join a team or go solo, log your trips for the duration of the challenge. and win prizes. If you join a team, team standings are determined by the number of trips logged by ALL enrolled team members divided by number of enrolled team members, If you want to create teams within your business or organization, we can help you.
What counts as a “trip”? A one-way journey to or from work, the grocery store or other utilitarian trip made by bike, bus, foot, carpool, or other sustainable transportation method. If you bike both to work and home, that counts as two trips. Also, if you telework and save a trip, go ahead and log it as well. The maximum number of trips that you can log in a day is 6! Additionally, trips can be logged using Strava, Waze, or the Commute Tracker app.
When do we start? The GoGallatin Challenge starts on May 2nd and ends on Bike to Work Day, May 20th. Any trips taken during this time period can be logged and will count towards your team’s total trip number as well as your own chance to win an awesome prize from our local sponsors.
