YORK, Pa. (May 18, 2012) – Commuter Services of Pennsylvania and local partners – Healthy Adams Bicycle/Pedestrian Inc. (HABPI), the Harrisburg Bicycle Club, WalkBikeBerks and the Lebanon Valley Bicycle Coalition – are extending the Bike to Work challenge to regional employers and commuters through the week of Monday, May 21 to Friday, May 25. The extension is due to a number of rainy days during Bike to Work Week, May 14–May 18.

Commuters who ride their bicycle to work during the two weeks will be entered to win a Bike Safety Pack valued at more than $25. The employer with the greatest number of bicycling commuters will also be recognized. To qualify, bicycle commuters should log their activity for Bike to Work Week at www.pacommuterservices.org.

The challenge is open to all employers in the participating counties of Adams, Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry or York and to commuters who live or work in these counties.
