2009 Bicycle Commuter Contest Draws to a Close

Yikes! I don’t know how it happened, but it’s almost June, and the 2009 Bicycle Commuter Contest is almost over! I hope your experience of riding your bike this month to work, school or on errands has been successful and enjoyable. I especially hope that you will share your experience with us by sending in or dropping off your Mileage Log at the Olympia Transit Center before June 8!

Two of the biggest objectives of the BCC are:

1. Getting people out on their bikes for utilitarian purposes, and reaping the many benefits of having fewer cars on the road.
2. Having a record of how much you bicycled, and adding to what we know about the bicycle commuting habits of our community.

To that end, when you signed up, we asked you to ride your bike, and we asked you to keep track of your miles and turn in your log. It doesn’t matter how little you think you rode- even if you only rode once in May, we still want to know about it. Your feedback about road conditions is also very valuable, and the cities and the County take it seriously.
On top of all that, when we receive your log, we can send you your coupon and discount packet, and possibly a prize!

So please, send in or drop off your BCC Mileage Log
(or turn it in to your team captain)
to the Olympia Transit Center, 222 State Ave Olympia, WA 98501
hours: M-F 6:30am-7pm, Sa-Su: 10am-7pm

Make Your Miles Count!

And, come to our grand
Awards Ceremony
Saturday, June 20, 2pm at the Olympia Farmer’s Market Main Stage
If you wear your 2009 BCC T-shirt, you can have your picture taken with your bike after the award ceremony. T-shirts are still available at the Olympia Transit Center, and are on sale for $7.50 each, or $5.00 if you buy more than one.
