The Tour de Redmond Summer Bicycle Commute Challenge is an annual two-month long program run by GRTMA every June and July. This event is designed to encourage the use of bicycles as an alternative to commuting to work via a single occupancy vehicle.

This year we had 560 participants took 14,347 bicycle commute trips and logged over 124,000 miles! Our bikers rode the distance of the United States horizontally back and forth 23 times. The dedication of our participants continues to amaze us and exceed our expectations. They saved $71k and 50.5 tons of carbon dioxide.
