Are you “the bike commuter” where you work? If so we need your help! We need you to help inspire your co-workers to try bike commuting, if just for this one week. Bike to Work Week is an awesome opportunity to let your co-workers see how rewarding bike commuting can be and we want to reward you for setting a great example.

More pedalers = More success!

To encourage greater participation and to help biking become a habit, we are counting 5 days, Monday-Friday.

Now get rolling! View the list of daily prizes here.

Lowell Observatory “Mars Hill Challenge Ride”

Mars Hill Road …. yep, you probably know it, the paved ½-mile winding climb from Thorpe Park to the scenic overlook and then up to Lowell Observatory that beckons cyclists to pit their aerobic prowess against its steep 10-12% grade.

As a regular BTWW work site participant, Lowell Observatory is sponsoring the “Mars Hill Challenge Ride” again this year as a featured event. Ride anytime between 10 am and 5 pm, we challenge local cyclists to bike up Mars Hill to the Lowell Observatory Steele Visitor Center and experience first-hand what Lowell BTWW riders contend with all week long. The reward?

A FREE “2 for 1” guest pass to Lowell Observatory, a reusable Lowell water bottle and a sweet sticker! Come inside with your bike helmet and talk to the associate in our newly expanded gift shop to claim your prizes!
