Preparations for the 12th Annual Portneuf Valley Bike to Work Employee Challenge are underway. The Employee Challenge encourages people to use alternative forms of transportation to work and encourages other active activities during the month of May. Biking is the most common form of alternative transportation used but many people choose to walk, carpool or take public transportation.
More than 100 businesses and over 450 individuals participated in the 11th Annual Portneuf Valley Bike to Work month. A lot of kids from our community come out and ride in the Bike Parade too. During the Bike Parade, helmets were provided to kids and teens that did not have one. The Idaho Transportation Department has donated helmets again this year and we will be giving them away at the Bike Parade.
Bannock Transportation Planning Organization promotes and encourages people to bike and walk for their daily activities. With the help of our sponsors and many volunteers, we have put together a highly visible event demonstrating that alternative forms of transportation, like biking, are a viable and fun way to get to work.
