Bike to work challenge is finished

Bike to Work (BtW) is a state-wide competition and its 9th year took place in May in various cities and towns across the Czech Republic. There were 7 teams from our instutute and two of them had members from our department. Alltogehter, participants from the institute traveled 6311 km in a sustainable way (mostly biking and walking).

The project’s goal is to motivate as many people as possible to learn to use a bike as a regular urban means of transportation (alternatively to walk or run). If more people switch from cars to bikes and other non-motorised vehicles, they will not only improve their physical condition, mood and work relationships but they will also jointly contribute to cleaner air and more pleasant, safer and healthier cities where they live and work.
