Intercity Transit’s Bicycle Commuter Challenge (BCC) is a fun, free community event that encourages people of all ages and abilities to try bicycling as a means of transportation in Thurston County, WA.
The BCC started in 1988 with about 30 participants as a challenge between a few workplaces in Olympia. Since then, the event has “grown up” along with its level of participation. In 2006 Intercity Transit began hosting the event and is now one of Intercity Transit’s many programs for improving mobility and the quality of life in our community.
The BCC and its affiliated events including the Winter BCC in February, the Earth Day Market Ride in April, and Bike-To-Work Day in May encourage participants to develop transportation habits that are sustainable, livable and healthy. Participants come together to celebrate their accomplishments in June at the Prize Hoopla when we award prizes and hold random prize drawings.
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, volunteers and participants, the Bicycle Commuter Challenge is now in its 33rd year!
