All employees are welcome to bike alone or to participate in group rides. In addition, bike commutes may include a bus, train, vanpool, carpool, or car for a portion of the trip. All cyclists who ride their bikes all or part of the way to work on Tuesday, May 13, 2008, regardless of starting point, will receive a continental breakfast, a T-shirt, and a backpack with promotional items.
