Thanks for a successful Tour de Redmond 2017!

Each summer, Greater Redmond Transportation Management Association invites commuters who live and work across Redmond to join the Tour de Redmond. This program is designed to encourage swapping a bicycle for traveling to and from work in place of a single occupant vehicle. The challenge runs the first of June through the end of July, with riders logging each trip to and from work to compete for prizes and bragging rights.

Whether participants make one bicycle commute or 100, each rider makes a difference in helping keep our air clean and our roads congestion free. Are you one of the 830 riders that just participated in the 12th Tour de Redmond? This year we logged nearly 11,850 bicycle commute trips and biked over 135,000 miles. Outstanding!

On August 9th, we held our Awards Ceremony to celebrate this year’s participants, handing out awards in both individual and team categories. Despite the sweltering heat, over 150 riders turned out to commemorate the 2017 challenge with great music, sausages and nearly $4,000 worth of excellent prizes.

Curious who came out on top?
