2020 Bike to Work Day Tribute Scavenger Hunt
May 15, 2020 - May 31, 2020
Though National Bike to Work Day has been postponed to a later date, Trailnet believes the show must go on. While some of us may have the privilege of working from home, many of our friends, neighbors and family members do not.
Those who have to get to work are still driving their cars, riding their bikes, walking, and taking public transportation. These people; whether they work in a grocery store, a hospital, or a kitchen; are working because they can’t afford not to. So, whether you are someone who has had the option to work from home or you’re a frontline worker amongst the myriad essential workplaces, let’s show our support for one another by celebrating National Bike to Work Day on the day it was meant to be.
This scavenger hunt will take you on a tour of workplaces and services that have remained in operation throughout the past months and will continue to do so into the uncertain future. Whether you’re still commuting, stopped commuting, or just need to get out on your bike for essential exercise; ride in gratitude, support, and solidarity of those who have been made most vulnerable. Each stop you tick off on the BTWD scavenger hunt shows your recognition of the effort and sacrifice of our essential workers.
