This event was RBF's first ever Bike to Work Day and was intended to encouraged employees to bike to work as a healthy and fun alternative to their typical commute. The idea was introduced by members of RBF's Wellness Works Committee, which helped to publicize the event and obtain corporate support for Bike to Work Day throughout the firm's largest office in Irvine. Flyers promoting the event were posted in all office kitchens, throughout hallways, and near restrooms. Emails were also sent out company-wide, which is the standard way to promote events at RBF. A week prior to Bike to Work Day, a "Lunch & Learn" presentation was held to help explain proper bike safety, maintenance, clothing, suitable bicycles, local trails and bike paths, as well as helpful bicycle commuting trips. Bike facilities, such as the locations of bike racks, showers and changing rooms throughout the Irvine office were also discussed.
The Bike to Work Challenge is a friendly competition between employers in the Columbus, Ohio area. To win the Challenge, a company/organization must achieve the highest bicycle mode share within its bracket over an 11 day period. Mode share is defined as the percentage of total trips using one mode of transportation, though the Challenge counts a trip toward the mode share even if it was not completed by bike in its entirety. For example, if every employee were to bike (at least part of the way) for every work commute over 11 days, they would achieve a mode share of 100%.
