"Vi cykler til arbejde” (Bike to work)
1 month motivational competition for work communities with a final awarding
Vi cykler til arbejde
The campaign "Vi cykler til arbejde” (Bike to work) promotes bicycling for commuting and everyday transportation.
The purpose of the campaign is to encourage more people to use their bike for commuting and everyday transportation, and thereby improve their physical and mental health,and reduce the damage to the environment.
The Danish Cyclists’ Federation organizes the campaign that has been a yearly tradition since 1997. The campaign runs from the 1st to the 31rd of May and has had between 70.000 and 110.000 participants in the last five years.
How does it work?
Bike to work gives companies and employees an opportunity to address the positive aspects of biking to work. For example, one person can reduce CO2 emissions by 450 kilos per year by biking 6 kilometres back and forth every day and burn an average of 800 calories per hour.
The participants join in teams of 4-16 people competing with and against each other biking to or from work as many days as possible in the month of May. During or at the end of May the participants have to register the number of days that they have biked to or/and from work on the campaign website. The more days the team members ride their bikes to work the better chances they have in the nationwide competition where they can win a variety of prizes. The lucky winners are revealed in the beginning of June.
To learn more and follow the campaign go to the national website.
