Bike Commute Challenge Reveals Who Talks a Good Game, But...

Tags: bicycling
bushbike The Portland-based Bicycle Transportation Alliance just released the results of this year's bike commute challenge .
The challenge included 1073 workplaces and 10,689 people. We pulled out some of the more interesting categories from the list of winners, which is too long and dull to reproduce here.
BTA spokesman Karl Rohde wrote, in his press release, "There are some pretty startling numbers in there."
What's more surprising is who not on the winners' list, or didn't participate. Where's Gerding Edlen ? Wieden and Kennedy ? Alta Planning and Design ? The office of Commissioner Sam Adams? The Coalition for a Livable Future? New Seasons Market? Uh...WW ?
(Wags finger—the one that usually has car keys dangling from it.)
Anyway, here:

Businesses and non-profits with 25-99 employees:
First place - Community Cycling Center with a commute rate of 78%
Second place - Chris King Precision Components with a commute rate of 62.3%
Third place - Wallis Engineering with a commute rate of 62%
