A fun way to encourage wellness in your company is to promote special events within your company such as the upcoming Bike to Work Day.  This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, June 25th.
.
Biking to work in Colorado is a tradition.  Last year’s Bike to Work Day was a huge success with more than 27,000 commuters participating.  In addition, 900 companies from throughout the region competed in the Business Challenge.
.
Sponsoring this event is simple and encourages health and wellness among your employees, as well as caring for the environment.  You can start out as simple as publicizing the event within your workplace including the website and offering tips such as using Google maps bike feature for finding a good route to your workplace.  Or even go a step further and register for the Business Challenge.
.
Other ways to encourage involvement:
  • Sponsor a healthy breakfast or lunch for participants
  • Purchase Event T-shirts for participants
  • Offer prizes or a drawing for participants
Remember – you don’t have to bike the whole way – you just have to arrive at work on your bike. Use of public transportation as part of your route is encouraged.
