DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION?

REGISTRATION

How can I participate in bike to work?

bike to work is a campaign to promote health within companies. You can participate in bike to work as soon as your company is registered. To do this you create a personal profile, assign it to your company and then record your bike days regularly on the calendar.

How do I register a company?

First create a personal profile. Then you can register your company. If the company already exists, the respective coordinator must register it and subscribe for the current Challenge.

Can I also register my company after the Challenge has started?

Yes, you can still register your company for the current Challenge at short notice.


PARTICIPATION

Can I choose the months in which I wish to participate?

Your company determines in which months you can participate in bike to work. May or June or May and June. You can see under ‘Company‘ which months your firm is participating.

Are teams of 5 also possible?

No, this is not possible. Team spirit is an important component of bike to work, and so as many as possible 4-person teams should ride along. In exceptional cases teams of 2 or 3 people or only one person can be formed. However, only teams of 4 can take part in the draw for the team prize.

What is the team pool?

The Team Exchange shows you all the teams of your company that still have places available. Here you can join your desired team.

Can I participate by foot?

Per team, one person can participate without using the bike, but still using the own physical strength, for example on foot, with Inline skates etc. The minimum distance must be at least 2 km per work day.

Can I participate with the E-bike?

Yes, a participation with your E-bike is possible.

Are combined forms of mobility possible?

A combination with public transport is permitted as long as at least 2 km per work day are spent moving with your own physical strength. Days on which you use the bike in combination with the car also count as bike days, as long as a distance of at least 6 km is covered by bike.

Am I insured if I have an accident during the campaign?

Insurance is the responsibility of the participants. All employees in Switzerland are covered by an occupational accident insurance.

Can a friend of a work colleague also take part?

No, only employees of a registered company can participate. In addition, all members of a team must work for the same employer.

APP

Why doesn‘t my app track accurately?

If your tracker is not very precise, it’s a question of the battery efficiency of your smartphone, which saves on battery consumption. The discrepancy can be up to 100 m inaccurate.

With which devices is the app compatible?

The app is compatible with Android- or iOS phones. With Android the app requires Android 5.x or newer. With iOS it requires iOS 9.0 or newer and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
