-To encourage bike riders to stay environmentally friendly, despite the environment being particularly unfriendly during these harsh winter months, Capital Bikeshare has launched a biking competition for annual and monthly members, to last from January 1 until the end of February. Members are invited to compete for who can take the most trips within the two-month time frame. The winner will be crowned “Winter Weather Warrior” and will receive a free three-year extension of their membership, two free annual memberships to give out to friends or family, $100 to Hudson Trail Outfitters, and $25 to Starbucks.
Capital Bikeshare will also be hosting a “Long Haul Rider” contest, which awards the contestant who has the most rides over three miles in distance. The “Most Saddle Time” contest awards the rider with the most time spent on a Capital Bikeshare bike. Several smaller contests will also be held throughout the two-month period at random, including prize drawings, which will be announced via Facebook and Twitter the day before the contest.
