Be sure to register your commute in order to win prizes donated by some of our sponsors. One lucky commuter will win the grand prize of a New Belgium Brewing Company Cruiser, donated by NBB & Monarch Beverage; it could be you, but you have to register to win. There's no fee to register, you don't have to ride downtown or be present to win, but you do need to get your online registration submitted by midnight on Saturday, May 19th. Why is registering your commute so important? Because we need to be able to show our elected officials (local, state and national level), as well as local businesses how many people are riding their bikes and care about issues that affect bicycling in central Indiana. Also, registering gives you the chance to win fabulous prizes!
