Pedal Perks is a yearlong bicycle commuter incentive program that promotes active transportation as a way of integrating wellness and sustainability into our every day lives. When we change our habits to relying on our bodies for transportation, we decrease our carbon footprint while increasing our physical fitness and improving our overall health and wellbeing.
Pedal Perks is a way to help you maintain a regular bicycle commute by rewarding you every month for your rides. You will also rewarded for being an active cyclist when you attend educational workshops, clinics, and events that will help keep you pedaling all year long.
