Winter BCC Prizes:
We award at least three prizes each week in the Winter BCC. The winners are drawn at random from every rider who logged miles during that week, up until 3 p.m. each Friday in February, when we do the drawing. Prizes include bike lights and other gear from Portland Design Works and NiteRider, gift cards from Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters, tokens from the Olympia Farmers Market and more! There are no team prizes in the Winter BCC, but the teams feature is active on the website, and teams can compete for bragging rights.
Everyone wins in the Bicycle Commuter Challenge in May!
