This week is promoted as Bike to Work Week (May 15-19) by The League of American Bicyclists. This Friday is a special Bike to Work Day (so if you ever th thought about biking into work, this would be a great day to give it a go!). You can find more details here: http://www.bikeleague.org/programs/bikemonth/.
Microsoft is hosting a breakfast on the soccer fields this Friday for cyclers and is offering the first 2,500 participants a one-time $50 gift card to anyone who uses alternative modes of transportation 15 times between May 1 and June 30. As an added incentive, the city of redmond is also offering a $50 gift card incentive to residents and people who work in redmond that use alternative transportation
I am trying for both $50 gift cards and hope I am one of the qualifying 2,500 participants.
