The items in your Team Leader kit are for you to give away at your discretion.
You want to get as many people to ride as possible in your workplace, department, floor, or group. Teams are competing in their size category for the highest participation rate. Participation is based on the number of people who ride that day divided by the number of people in your workplace. Use the prizes to entice more people to participate.
Here are some ideas:
- Give prizes out before Bike to Work Week to people who have an excuse for not riding. Some of the prizes in the kit will help your colleagues to overcome their obstacles.
- Give a prize to everyone who rides each day of the week.
- Give a teammate a prize if it is his or her first time riding to work.
- Put a few prizes together and do a draw at the end of the week - the more people ride, the more chances they have to win.
- Give out a prize before BTWW starts to new recruits.
- Withhold prizes and give them out as a person arrives by bike each morning.
Teams with the highest participation rates in each size category (mini, small, medium, and large) can win tickets for dinner and wine from Kelowna Actors Studio, wine tours from Tantalus Vineyards, $100 GC from Urban Harvest, tours from Smile Cycle Tours, self-guided tour for two to Penticton from Myra Canyon Bike Rentals, GCs from Orthoquest, free yoga at The Hot Box Yoga, bike lights, and lots of other great prizes.
The highest participation is determined using the number of riders that logged trips and the number of trips logged per team. This provides more incentive for new riders to join in the fun too!
