Team Captain Tool Kit

Thanks For Being a Team Captain!

Every B2WC participant is a important part of the competition, but you are SUPERstar. We’re thrilled that you’re a leader at your organization and want to help you and your team succeed! The resources below will help you recruit team members and promote the Bike to Work Challenge and Active Transportation’s mission for better biking in Chicagoland.

What does a Team Captain do?

The Team Captain is their team’s biggest cheerleader; the Pied Piper of bike commuting, if you will. Team Captain also can add/delete team members, change passwords, send out team communications and challenge other teams. They encourage their teams to commute by bike, set up group rides, act as a resource for bike commuting safety, tips and maintenance and even set up a team happy hours or similar spirited events. Want to make T-shirts? Awesome!

Promote and recruit team members with these resources.

Hey there!

I've just created a team for the 2019 Bike to Work Challenge! If you’ve never participated in the B2WC, it's an awesome, two-week competition among Chicagoland companies to see who can log the most bike commuting miles. Don't worry if you've never bike commuted before; it's easy, safe and fun! The B2WC website has all the tools and resources you need for a successful challenge.

It's FREE to participate in the B2WC and you don't have to bike every day or even the entire way to work. Just make one trip between June 14 and June 28, and you will help [organization name] become the 2019 Bike to Work Challenge champs.

Excited yet? Register now for a chance to win prizes, participate in fun B2WC events and help our team ride to glory! Set up your account, search for "team name," select "join" and that's it!

Follow these step-by-step instructions on joining a team here.

Let me know if I can answer any questions. (Yes, we can make up silly team slogans and cheers.)
