FAQ

General

 

Does the Bike to Work Challenge cost anything?
Nope; signup and participation are totally free. If you’d like to be extra rad and help support Active Trans’ nonprofit bike, walk and transit advocacy work, choose to include an Active Trans membership or make a donation at signup.

How does it work?
While there are lots of related prizes and activities, participating in the challenge itself takes just three easy steps:

  1. Sign up
  2. Either choose to be a team leader and create a team for your company, or join a team that’s already started
  3. Start riding and logging your commutes!

Trip Tracking/B2WC App

 

Does the Bike to Work Challenge link up with other riding apps like Strava?
no, the only app that is available for trip logging is the Bike to Work Challenge App.

The app is not working correctly on my phone.
Please make sure that both your phone and the app are up to date, this should solve any glitches you are experiencing. If not, hit the phone with a hammer a couple of times; that usually works. (Just kidding.) Feel free to email us at bikechi@activetrans.org with the subject line “B2WC app help!” and we’ll get you the support you need.

How do the points round out when the mileage is not a whole number?

  • If you ride 1.5 miles it will round up to 2 miles.
  • If you ride 1.4 miles it will round down to 1 mile.

Teams

 

What is a subgroup or subteam?
So you’re a member of a large organization that wants to hold an interoffice competition? Sounds like a blast! Smaller groups can be created under the umbrella team of their organization.

Can I (the Team Leader) see all my members’ biked miles?
Yes, this is a function within the Team Management section of the website.
