2014 Bike Month Commuter Challenge Winners

Bike Month 2014 was another great success! We had great participation in the Commuter Challenge (437 participants, 4,458 trips, 47,576 miles not driven, and 2,507 pounds of CO reduced), Tacoma Bike Swap, and in a marvelous list of events that were sponsored and hosted by local community partners. Participants could sign up as a team or individual to participate in the challenge and be eligible to win an overnight getaway to Portland with travel on Amtrak and other fabulous prizes.

Thank you to the many cyclists who participated and continue to ride year-round. We look forward to seeing you at Bike Month events in 2015! Keep up with bicycling and other events year-round by becoming a fan of Pierce Trips, TacomaMobility, and DowntownOntheGo on Facebook.
