Trumer Brauerei has challenged Actual Cafe to compete in the Team/Company Bike Challenge during bike month this year, and we’ve accepted the challenge. Trumer has added some twists to the competition, including our Trumer sales for the month as a factor (which you can all help us out with), but we’re pretty confident we can kick their butts even without the beer sales being factored in. Our crew is about the same size as Trumer’s (they’re 16 and we’re 18), but a large number of our employees bike to work every day, and many don’t even own cars.
Because we need to form teams of no more than five riders, and we’ll all be competing in the Team Bike Challenge as teams on top of this company challenge, I’ve offered an additional incentive of $100 cash to the winning Actual Cafe team.
I’ve spent a lot of time making Actual Cafe bike friendly, and we’ve gotten lots of props for it. Unfortunately, my own riding has fallen off substantially since having opened the cafe, and I’m glad that Trumer has given me the excuse to get my flabby ass back out on a bike more regularly.
We’ll post updates through the course of the month of May, but you can all track our progress and the competition at youcanbikethere.com.
Game on, Trumer!
