2009 BCC Participation Results Are In!

Thanks for being a part of the Bicycle Commuter Contest- it has been another great year!
Thank you for being one of 1633 citizens to participate the 2009 Bicycle Commuter Contest. Your commitment to choose your bicycle as your mode of transportation during the month of May helped make our community a more livable, sustainable and healthy place to call home. This year’s participants recorded 100,836 miles on 11,500 round-trip
commutes, preventing roughly 100,000 pounds of C02 from entering our atmosphere, and measurably reducing pollution and traffic congestion. Your efforts and your transportation choices are greatly appreciated. Thanks for riding your bike, and going the extra mile!

I am tallying the final results of the 2009 Bicycle Commuter Contest today, so any mileage logs received from this point forward (until we mail out coupons) will be gratefully accepted, and you will receive your coupon packet, but it's too late to win any prizes or have your numbers included in our final results totals.
I will be announcing the winners of our many prize categories, and awarding prizes at our Award Ceremony at the Olympia Farmers Market this Saturday, June 20, at 2pm on the main stage.
Please join me in celebrating another great year for the Bicycle Commuter Contest! (you need not be present to receive your prize, if you are a winner)
