In order to support Bike Month in Toronto and promote cycling as an active means of travel, BA Group decided to create a cycling competition for the month of June. A total of 20 BA Group employees participated in the challenge (35 percent of the company) and were divided into three teams (“Kicking Ashphalt”, “Two Tyred” and “Rubber Side Down”) based on estimated weekly commitment (i.e. number of days cycling per week) and distance travelled.
Participants cycled as little as 1 km (to a nearby GO Transit station) to up to 17 km each direction. In total, BA Group cycled over 3,200 km (equivalent to cycling from Toronto to the Mexican border)!
