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.
Throughout the year you will track and report every ride you take on your bike - whether it's to campus, the grocery store or a friends house. You'll receive points for every mile and round trip you submit. There will be various events, group rides and clinics for you to attend to gain points while meeting fellow cyclists, learning more about your bike and gaining confidence for your daily commute. We also offer health screenings and surveys to track your physical progress throughout the year. At the end of each month we'll tally up your points and award various prizes to help keep you pedaling!
