Cycle with your colleagues in May
When this year's Bike2Work campaign starts in May across Denmark, there are many good reasons to ride with. You save money on gasoline and travel tickets, you save the environment from CO2 plus you are less sick and burn more calories!
Do it - and win a trip
It may be tempting to take the car to work, but actually 38% of all Danish car commuters dream of cycling more *. Cycling to work together with colleagues can become a fun, common challenge that brings the team together. And you are also in the competition for a dream trip worth 12.000 kr. per person!
Do it online
This year there are many new features on the campaign website, which provides extra motivation to cycle to work - or to cycle even more than usual.
You can, for example, monitor how many calories you burn, calculate how much money and how much CO2 you and your team save, and see how many sick days you have reduced. You can also compare team results and see how you stack up against the other teams, workplaces and municipalities across the country.
Do it on the bike path
The core of the campaign remains the same as it always has been, says campaign manager Maria Bech: "It is first and foremost about getting people cycling - and to have fun with the colleagues. This year, we bring to the campaign a lot of new opportunities on both the website and social media. But the key is still cycling, and it is still the team which cycles most days that has the greatest chance of winning this year's main prize."
Do it on Instagram and Facebook
The campaign also has a brand new hashtag on Instagram # gørdetpåcykel (do it with a bike). By using this hashtag, participants can share images and stories from their cycle trips.
There are several competitions running on the campaign's Facebook and Instagram- page. There is, for example, a contest for the funniest team motto and the best photo.
New teams can register until May 1st.
