Bike to Work Challenge – May 10-14, 2021
In 2021, it is not just a day…it’s a whole week! This friendly competition is among businesses in the City of Santa Clarita to see which employer can get the most employees to bike to work during the week of Monday, May 10 through Friday, May 14, 2021. Please continue to practice safe COVID-19 protocols.
No pit stops will be available this year, however, riders have a chance to enter the prize raffle multiple times by biking to work any or all days during the designated week. This gives employees a chance to participate on a variety of days, since many are telecommuting some days during the week. Santa Clarita Transit is offering FREE rides for anyone on local routes that have their bike and/or helmet. That way you can complete your commute, even from a distance!

Bicycling reduces traffic, keeps our air clean, improves your health, and saves you money on gas!
