SPORTWORKS ANNOUNCES RACK AND RIDE TRANSIT CHALLENGE

04.21.2005
Woodinville, Washington

Which U.S. city boasts the most popular bicycle transit system in the country? Sportworks is holding a contest to find out.

Running from May 1 through August 31, 2005, the Sportworks Rack and Ride Transit Challenge will gather information from close to 70 transit authorities on bicycle usage aboard transit buses. Both percentage of bicycle boardings per total bus usage and total number of bicycle boardings will be used to determine the winners which will be announced at the International Transit Expo in Dallas in September.

"Over the years I have observed a subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, competition between transit authorities regarding bicycle boardings on their transit vehicles," says Lisa Robinson-Falvy, Vice-President of Multi-Modal Products for Sportworks. "The 2005 Sportworks Rack and Ride Transit Challenge beginning with Bike-to-Work month will give transit authorities the opportunity to see just where they rank for the year."

And the contest will underline just how popular Sportworks Bike-Rack-for-Buses really are for both cyclists and transit agencies. Sportworks racks annually transport over 12 million bicycles on more than 50,000 buses throughout North America. The racks are quick and easy to load and unload, highly durable, simple to clean, and studies have shown that the loading and unloading of bikes from the racks does not cause delays in bus schedules. A real plus for all riders.

So commuters are encouraged to get out there and combine bicycling with their local transit system buses for travel to work, to the store, or just to see more of the city in which they live. Because not only will the cyclists be helping the environment by not driving and improving their health by putting in two-wheeled miles, but Sportworks Rack and Ride Transit Challenge is about to begin.

Sportworks designs, manufactures, and markets both Bike-Rack-for-Buses and a complete line of innovative bicycle racks for sale through independent bicycle dealers. All racks are designed and assembled in the U.S.A. Sportworks can be reached at 888-661-0555 or via the web at www.bicycleracks.com.
