More than twenty local businesses now support and sponsor the 2nd Annual Bike to work week, May 12 through May 16. An agency, business, or individual can sign up to participate and win prizes. Paul Anschutz, a member of both the City of Sturgeon Bay Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board and the Door County Silent Sports Alliance (DCSSA), tells us about the goals of this event.
Individuals and rider groups register and log the miles ridden during the week and share that information through a central reporting source, the Door County Public Health Department (DCPHD). You must sign up through them, obtain log forms through them, and report miles ridden through them. This can be done by fax at 920-746-2320 or e-mail atPublicHealth@co.door.wi.us . The organization or business that logs the most miles will receive a trophy for their efforts. Door prizes, donated by the many involved businesses, are won by riders who register and then come to the event ending fish dinner on Friday, May 16th at 7:15 at the Lodge at Leathem Smith. Anschutz explains:
Last year more than twenty riders attended and many were awarded with prizes. One grand prize this year will be a 4 hour fishing tour. Ride your bike to work next week to get healthy, save dollars, lower polution, and most importantly have fun.
