481,067 km cycling to work in the Summer Challenge

The Bike to Work Summer Challenge 2019 was a success with 2289 participating cyclists in 624 teams from 120 companies. All participants together cycled 481,067 km to work from 27 May to 21 June. Together, all participants saved 84 tonnes of CO2 with their participation.

Each team took up the challenge of cycling 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of their commute. The teams that succeeded in doing so had a chance to win great prizes. The prizes ranged from a personal shop budget of € 250 in a bicycle shop, over a weekend in a luxury hotel to waterproof backpacks for all team members.

4 teams in the general classification and 4 teams in the newcomers classification hijacked the prizes. In addition, several teams won stylish t-shirts and a Bosch charging station for eBikes with fun assignments on social media.
