The Ready Set Ride Commute Challenge, presented by the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), is a new way to encourage individuals and employers to reduce driving in October by walking, biking, using transit, riding in a carpool or vanpool, or teleworking. SACOG has set up a new website where participants can make a pledge and log their trips during the last week of October (October 22 – 28) for a chance to win prizes, earn virtual badges and participate in challenges against friends and co-workers. It’s another way for you to Spare The Air! This friendly competition operates a lot like May is Bike Month, the popular spring cycling campaign that has nearly 10,000 participants each year.
Will you #rebootyourcommute? Here’s how to get started:
SET – To get ready: Tune up your bike, hold an impromptu carpool karaoke session or find a good book for the bus. Registration is now open. Get your early bird badge by registering before October 15, and invite your friends using the “Invite a Friend” tool, at ReadySetRideChallenge.com.
RIDE – Log all of your trips from October 22 – 28: Earn virtual badges and a chance to win great prizes. You’ll help your employer rank higher the more you log.
