The clouds are clearing just in time to kick off the Portland Commuter Challenge. We’ve teamed up with GO Maine and many local businesses to encourage employees at companies across Portland to commute another way to work during the month of October. So, bring out your bike, work on a carpool, ride the bus, walk…. whatever it takes to get you here.
Registering at the GoMaine website and logging your commute: https://www.rideproweb.com/gomaine/ makes you eligible for all sorts of good prizes, including:
- Ski tunes and Bike Tunes to AllSpeed Cyclery and Snow
- $5 gift cards to Bard Coffee
- $25 to Portland House of Pizza
- $25 to Local Sprouts
- $25 to El Rayo
- $25 to Sebago Brew Pub
- Free massage or acupucture session with Jade Health
- $20 to Kamasouptra
- Free sandwich at Katie Made
- Coffee and Gift card to Coffee by Design
- Free Sunrise Guide
- Free 10 pass to Metro
- Free Membership to Maine Bike Coalition
Random winners will be picked each week out of those who have logged an alternate commute and posted to Facebook.
If you’ve never used it before, the GO Maine website has a really cool map to help you find carpools from pretty much anywhere to anywhere. They even have stuff from my neck of the woods to Portland – rare indeed! So, make a friend – join a carpool and get some prizes, and make ReVision Energy look good in the commuter challenge!
