Team Captain Responsibilities
  1. Recruit team members from your place of employment, your building or your community.
  2. Choose a team name—something fun and splashy, or perhaps something that best describes your company, type of work or group.
  3. Follow the directions below to register your team.
  4. Encourage the participation of people who may not be avid bicyclists and may need extra support to get started. Refer new cyclists to the bicycle section on the websites listed below.
  5. Keep participants up to date on events throughout the month. Get people inspired about biking everywhere and extol the benefits of riding.
  6. If riding to work, act as a liaison between team members and your Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC). Report registration and results to the ETC for your workplace.
  7. Captains may decide to negotiate challenges between teams either at their workplace or at another participating workplace. They may also try and elicit support from their employer to encourage participation or provide incentives. Incentives could include gaining permission for “casual” dress days or a half hour late arrival on days employees ride their bike to work.
  8. Try to get management involved. Perhaps your CEO will ride his or her bike to work if you ask!
