On Wednesday, June 27, 1,355 Springs residents participated in the 25th annual Bike to Work Day, a record number of participants. Bike riders chose from several breakfast locations to stop for free breakfast on their commute, and The Corporate Challenge pitted businesses against each other to see who could draw the most participation.

The Class A (1-29 employees) winner of the Corporate Challenge was Honest Accurate Auto Service with 12 out of 12 employees participating. The Class B (30-99 employees) winner was SARA with 41 of 81 employees participating. In Class C (100-299) the US Olympic Committee fittingly won with 33 of 250. Finally, Class D (300-1000+) went to Centura Health who had 92 of its 1000 employees participate.

"The return of the Corporate Challenge encouraged employees to experience some of the benefits of bicycle commuting in a positive and welcoming environment," the city says in an email. "We received positive feedback from many employers and look forward to even more businesses participating next year."
