"Biking is a healthier alternative to driving," says Roz Tucker, GCO's (https://gacommuteoptions.com/)
More than 200 Atlanta-area companies will register multiple teams of up to eight people, encouraging their employees to bike in their neighborhoods and around town. Cyclists can also register as social teams with friends and family, or as individuals. People who register before October 1 will be entered into a drawing to win a $1,000 gift card from REI. Other prizes include bike gear and restaurant gift cards. Registrants can ride anywhere, anytime over the course of the month – their ride just needs to be 10 minutes or more. Once they complete a ride, they log their miles for prizes and bragging rights. Top cyclists will be entered into a drawing to win an Edison electric bike, valued at more than $2,000.
"Biketober is a fun challenge for the whole family, and it offers a number of benefits to the region," says Jill Goldberg, GCO's marketing director. "From exercise and promoting family time to reducing pollution and congestion from cars, this is a healthy competition for everyone, all while earning amazing prizes."
