What is bike to work?
bike to work is a campaign to promote health in companies. Every year in May and June over 97,000 commuters ride to work by bike on as many work days as possible and win attractive prizes. Through bike to work, about 3250 companies strengthen their staff's team spirit and fitness, while supporting sustainable mobility practice.
Since 2005 bike to work has grown to become Switzerland's largest bike and health promotion campaign, and today it's a key component of corporate health management for many companies.
Apart from the shared experience, the companies benefit from a comprehensive service. With online registration in a few clicks everything is taken care of: from flyers and posters through website and app for route tracking to the organisation and draw of the 1557 individual and team prizes worth a total of over CHF 130,000.-.
Who's behind it?
bike to work is a project of the association Pro Velo, which represents the interests of cyclists throughout the country. The goal is to promote the bike as an ecological, energy-saving and healthy means of individual transport.
