Bike Commuter Challenge: June 16-June 30, 2017
Congratulations to our 2017 Bike Commuter Challenge Winners!
Loyola won in the education category for employers between 2,500 and 4,999 staff! Loyola University ranked 19th overall out of 306 teams. We earned 4,284 points logging 1,429 miles. Out of our 26 riders, the top mileage and points was Patrick Decker of Water Tower Campus. The leading rider from the Lake Shore Campus was Zhenwei Zhu for points and miles.
The Loyola Team participated in the 25th Annual Bike Commuter Challenge, June 10 - 17, 2016
Each year, Loyola participates in the Bike Commuter Challenge, a competition between Chicagoland companies and schools to see who can commute by bike the most. It's FREE to participate and top riders will be eligible for prizes. You don't have to bike every day or even the entire way to work- just make one trip during the Challenge and you help Loyola become the Bike Commuter Champs.
We had just over 50 employees on the team, and logged 367 rides for a total of 2,218 miles.
- In competing with the other companies, of the 217 companies involved for total miles Loyola University Chicago came in 5th, and for the number of trips we came in 6th place. Both are great results!
- Two of our employees (Daniel Monreal with Campus Safety and Stephen Ravenscraft with UMC, both at Water Tower) were in the top 5 for miles by rider, out of over 3,600 riders region-wide.
- In our category, Education Institutions with 500-2,499 Employees, we came in second place. We had 2.47% participation.
We had great volunteer support from Campus Transportation, Human Resources, ChainLinks, and University Libraries. Thanks to everyone who participated!
