Bike to Work Day
Bike to Work Day is an annual event held each spring across the United States and Canada that promotes bicycling as an option for commuting to work. The Saratoga Springs Bike to Work Day challenge is organized by Bikeatoga, a local organization dedicated to pushing for a better future by making functional cycling more convenient, accessible, and safer in and around Saratoga Springs, NY.
For several years, Skidmore employees have taken part in the friendly competition between community organizations. For the past two years, Skidmore has won Bikeatoga's "SteerHead Trophy", an award that goes to the organization with the most total riders. Faculty and staff join together in downtown Saratoga Springs and meet with other riders in the community, then ride up to campus as a group before the workday begins. It's a fun, healthy event than many look forward to each spring.
