RIDE YOUR BIKE AND WIN!

Jump on your bike as often as possible with your colleagues in May and June, improve your fitness and team spirit while contributing to
saving the environment. Become part of Switzerland's largest bike and health promotion campaign now.

  1. REGISTER

One person takes care of the registration and internal coordination. Your company can take part in the Challenge either in May or June or for the two months, and it pays the one-time participation fees for the whole staff. Then log in and look for your company. Create a team, and as team leader invite your colleagues or join an existing team.

2. Ride

Go from home to work by bike or e-bike, and record the kilometres covered in the Challenge calendar from your computer or smartphone. With the bike to work application you can also record the routes automatically. So you can win colourful rewards and secure places on the podium.

3. Win

Jump on your bike regularly and win prizes worth a total of CHF 140,000.–! If you bike to work on at least 50% of your work days, you take part at the end of the challenge in the draw for individual prizes. For all teams of 4 in which each member follows the 50% rule, there will also be a draw for team prizes.

«Experience the awakening of the day, encounters with cyclists and walkers that only consist of waving hello, and with time grow to a kind of wordless relationship or perhaps one day get caught in a conversation. The ride home is for me, apart from being a fitness programme, also the best form of mental hygiene: switching off completely and leaving work behind, before I get back to the family.»

Game Rules

Calendar entries

During the challenge you make regular entries in the Challenge Calendar, by marking each day with the correct colour.

Biking on a home office day You rode your bike: in this case you enter the whole distance covered and confirm the entry with green «With bike». You did not ride your bike: mark the day red «Without bike»
Having a day off? Bike rides on non-working days may not be entered. Consequently on non-working days (days off, vacation, illness or other absence) you always mark grey «Not a workday». Grey days are neutral and are not taken into account for the draw.

PRIZE DRAW

If you use a bike on at least 50% of your working days, you automatically take part in the individual prize draw. Each 4-person team whose members have followed the 50% rule also takes part in the team prize draw.
