Another Successful Bike to Work Week in 2012

Another successful Bike to Work Week has come and gone. The weather could not have been more perfect for the week. We had 84 riders for the week ranging in age from 20 to 79 years old! The average daily commute was 9 miles. The longest trip was 38 miles, and the shortest trip was 1 mile. In total, bicycle commuters rode over 3,100 miles! To put that in perspective, Tri-State bicycle commuters rode across the state of Iowa and back again 5 times! Assuming everyone would have driven a car instead of a bike for the week, Tri-State  bicycle commuters reduced their CO2 emissions by an estimated 1.3 metric tons. Lastly, when considering the price of gas, Tri- State bicycle commuters ended the week not only healthier and greener, but  wealthier too! Of course, just because the week is over doesn’t mean you can’t ride anymore. You can ride, free of charge, all summer. Thanks for all of your support, and I hope to see  everyone riding to work or on the trails.
