Commuter Services of Pennsylvania has announced the winners of their fifth annual Bike to Work Week Challenge.
The week-long event took place May 13 to May 17. A total of 90 participants logged nearly 2,740 miles while commuting to work by bicycle. Last year, 74 bicyclists logged 4,054 miles during the two week challenge that was extended due to bad weather.
The Bike to Work Week Challenge was open to all employers in the participating counties of Adams, Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, and York, as well as commuters who live or work in these counties.
For the second year in a row, the campus of Penn State Hershey Medical Center and Penn State College of Medicine took first place as employer with the most participants. They had fifteen employees log 243 miles commuted by bike during Bike to Work Week.
Bradley Schultz of Dauphin County won the grand prize for most miles logged — a total of 140 miles to his job at DCNR in Harrisburg. In recognition of his efforts, Schultz won a Bike Safety Pack that included bicycle related items, such as a water bottle and bike tool kit.
