Pedaling to Reduce Traffic Pollution: 2019 International Bike to Work Week Challenge
As part of Tetra Tech’s Sustainability Program, we challenge employees around the world to cycle to work for one week during May to reduce emissions, promote sustainable transportation methods, and encourage healthy lifestyles.
Tetra Tech’s 2019 International Bike to Work Week (BTWW) Challenge experienced the highest participation yet, with 697 riders from more than 61 teams pedaling 44,326 kilometers (27, 543 miles) across Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Malawi, New Zealand, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Our cyclists collectively saved 5,213 liters (1,377 gallons) of gas and kept the equivalent of 12.2 metric tons CO2e from being added to the atmosphere.
This video highlights our teams from around the world who parked their cars for a week and braved all types of inclement weather—hot, cold, wet, and even snowy—to cycle to work.
