Mayor Ballard Bike to Work DayOn May 15th, Indianapolis Bike to Work Day, hundreds of bicyclists converged on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis to hear Mayor Ballard proclaim "It is my goal to make Indianapolis as bicycle-friendly as possible", and to eat bagels and fruit before heading off to work.

BGI serves as the sponsor of Indianapolis Bike to Work Day Corporate Challenge. Teams from businesses city-wide competed to earn the top prizes. Many BGI employees rode and helped lead several of the group commuting rides. In addition, BGI offers a coupon for everyone who biked to work. Although BGI actually won the Corporate Challenge for "Small company", we withdrew from the official competition and earned bragging rights only.

2009 Indianapolis Bike to Work Day Corporate Challenge Winning teams:

Small (<100 employees): Experian
Medium (100-500 employees): Angie’s List
Large (>500 employees): Eli Lilly

Sponsoring Indianapolis Bike to Work Day is just one of the ways BGI helps make Indianapolis better for bicycling.
