The City of Santa Clarita invites local businesses and their employees to participate in the annual Bike to Work Challenge. The week-long challenge will take place May 16-20.

On Thursday, May 19, five “pit stops” will be available to participants with free refreshments and giveaways. Participants are encouraged to take the online pledge at GreenSantaClarita.com to be entered into a raffle for free prizes.

The Bike to Work Challenge is a competition among Santa Clarita businesses to rally their employees to bike to work and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Local businesses that are registered to participate and have the most participation in their size category will win a free lunch at a local restaurant of their choice.

Businesses interested in participating are required to designate a “lead rider” who will act as a point of contact and will register the business. 

Lead riders should register online at GreenSantaClarita.com and must submit a list of those at their company who participated by May 23 to Scott Bachrach, city event coordinator for the Bike to Work Challenge, at (661) 255-4173 or sbachrach@santa-clarita.com.
