Take the DART challenge and ride your bike in May

Bike to WorkDART is hosting a Bike to Work Challenge to help encourage riders to use bicycles as an alternative to driving during the month of May.

Cyclists can help the environment, improve their health and earn bragging rights by riding as much as possible to win gift cards from Richardson Bike Mart worth up to $100.

Eligible participants must be residents of DART cities: Addison, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Glenn Heights, Highland Park, Irving, Richardson, Rowlett, Plano and University Park or have a work destination that begins with the “75” zip code.

DART and the North Central Texas Council of Governments have partnered on this first ever Bike to Work Challenge where participants must log their daily commute activities at http://www.tryparkingit.com. The website is free and was developed to record the miles ridden and to assist commuters in finding and utilizing alternatives to driving alone.

Biking to work makes more sense than ever considering all of DART’s bus and rail connections. Customers can ride their bikes to any station and use one of more than 140 bike lids to store their bicycle. They can also take advantage of bike racks on every bus and train to combine bicycles and transit. Bicycles are permitted on any DART vehicle, all Trinity Railway Express trains and the Dallas Streetcar. Learn more by visiting http://www.DART.org/bikes.
