Danish American organizations are rallying together during the month of May for National Bike to Work month! Join this challenge with us and post pictures of your bike ride to work or school on social media with the hashtag #BiketoWorkUSADK from May 1st to May 31st, 2021. You can also post your pictures in this Facebook group!
Send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like your picture included in a virtual photo album after the bike to work month is complete. Please send your photos by June 1st.
We have a variety of categories for biking to work, school, or even biking at home. We will choose a winner for each category at the end of the month. The categories are:
- Longest ride (distance)
- Shortest ride – must be outdoors!
- Steepest elevation climb
- All dressed up!
- Most scenic ride to work
- Longest ride on a stationary bike (distance)
Riders will be chosen based on self-reported information and the honor system. If you would like to be considered for a category, at the end of the month you can send an e-mail to email@example.com with your ride details. Details you can include are the distance you rode to work (one way), your route’s elevation climb (this can be found on Google Maps), pictures of your bike outfit to work, and/or any scenic pictures from your route.
Let’s bike to work like the Danes do!
