This seems like a good program, I will check it out a little later. Ireland has the largest bike to work program. And it has been very successful. I have attached a link, not sure that it would work here in the USA but it shows when people pull together what can happen. www.biketowork.ie/
I hope this is ok to post, but I just got notice of a really great biking challenge. Last week, the Alliance for Biking and Walking announced the continuation of a partnership with CLIF Bar & Company in the nationwide "2 Mile Challenge." The goal is to replace 100,000 car trips this summer with pollution-free trips taken by bicycle instead. According to a press release about the challenge, "In the U.S., 40 percent of all urban trips are two miles or less, but 90 percent of those short distances are made by automobile. CLIF Bar started the 2 Mile Challenge to build community among current bicyclists, encourage more citizens to travel on two wheels, and support nonprofits that are working to increase active transportation." The Alliance is leading the effort's Gold Team, while the Safe Routes to School national partnership is heading up the Red Team and 350.org (a grassroots organization taking on climate change) is leading the Blue Team.
