Team UCAR/NCAR leads Boulder’s Bike-to-Work Day

Helping to lead the way toward cleaner air, UCAR took first place among large organizations in Boulder’s annual Bike-to-Work Day in June, based on the high number of staffers who used alternative transportation to get to the office. Moreover, Team UCAR/NCAR won the corporate challenge division of the Coal Miner’s Classic bicycle race, which capped Bike-to-Work activities. In this photo, RAP’s Deirdre Garvey (left), ATD’s Dave Carlson (center), and GST’s Myron McCallum (second from right) accept the first-place trophy from race director C.J. Gauss. (Deirdre, it should be noted, sprinted around StorageTek’s final rider in the last 100 meters in a dramatic finish.) ESIG’s Jeremy Hackney (right), who coached the team, says: “Though many people biked up the mesa on Bike-to-Work Day, the Transportation Alternative Program’s shuttle services and the bus pass program are at the core of UCAR’s success at reducing drive-alone commute trips.”
