2008 Bike Commute Challenge Results

The Salem-area Bike Commute Challenge results are in! For full details see the complete results here. You can sort by workplace name or by city.

As most participants know, the BTA built a new database and website for the BCC. During the first two weeks of it, the site was buggy and demand was high; consequently it crashed often, and it was difficult for people to register and to log trips. Anecdotally this reduced participation by a substantial amount. As it was, workplace participation increased by 5% and individual participation by 10%. We've seen the increase in riders on the road - could we have hit 50% this year? Who knows!

So here are the 2008 BCC results. I futzed around and can't get tables to work conveniently, so here's an awkward set of sentences that will present the data in what I hope are meaningful slices, sorted by size of workplace. (In another entry I may be able to write more about the BCC and share some individual stories.)
