Over 100 bicyclists from over 10 Chester County businesses filled the Chester Valley Trail to celebrate National Bike to Work Day in Chester County hosted by the Foundation for the Improvement of Transportation (FIT); powered by TMACC.
For the past 7 years, TMACC and FIT have hosted a fun corporate challenge posed to Chester County’s businesses to bring out the most riders from a company. The Bike to Work Day Challenge is an energy driven morning, which continues to grow as more people discover using the trail for their commutes.
TMACC Executive Director, Tim Phelps, stated that the Chester Valley Trail has been a huge asset in promotion of biking to work. “Since the Chester Valley Trail opened in 2010, we’ve leveraged it to celebrate bike to work day and promoting it as Chester County’s “US 202 for trails.” It is a safe, convenient and accessible alternative to using your car to get to work. We hope more people consider commuting by bike.”
The ride culminated with breakfast and awards at the Royal Worthington, a luxury apartment complex located in the Uptown Worthington Town Center. The winners of TMACC’s challenge was Cerner with over 40 riders. Vanguard came in second with 18 riders and Traffic Planning, and Design were third with 13.
The Foundation for the Improvement of Transportation (FIT) is a 501 (c) 3 foundation managed by local transportation demand management advocacy organization, the Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC).
