Also, if you would like to do more biking this summer, join us in a friendly competition with the Alaska chapter of the American Institute of Architects and Bicycle Commuters of Anchorage to see which businesses can get the greatest percentage of employees commuting to work by bike. You do not need to bike to work every day to join. This is a summer-long challenge starting on Friday, May 20 and ending September 10 with a mass ride and celebration at the Spenard Farmers Market.
