The Ada County Highway District’s Commuteride program is once again housing its Ridetober Commuter Challenge. This event encourages Treasure Valley commuters to use smart transportation options in October. Each day participants bike, walk, carpool, vanpool, or ride the bus, and track their commute on SharetheRideIdaho.com, they are entered to win daily rewards. All the challenge details can be found on the Ridetober website.
Additionally, Commuteride and local transportation and public safety partners, including Boise State’s Cycle Learning Center, are coming together to celebrate bike safety by offering free bike lights during their Ride Bright pop-up. The event is from 4-7 p.m., or while supplies last on Wednesday, Oct. 5. Locations can be found on the event’s interactive map.
