For each trip a participant logs a sustainable commute on the Gohio Commute platform, that person will gain an entry to the Trip Log Grand Prize, the category determined by the collective trip logs per team. There is a maximum of two (2) trip logs per day.
The second Grand Prize will be one team selected based on having the most collective miles traveled. Teams may win a maximum of one (1) grand prize.
Trip logs must be made between Friday, May 1, 2020 at 5:30 a.m. and Sunday, May 31, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. to be eligible for either prize category.
Only bike and scooter trip logs are eligible for this Challenge. Any bike or scooter trip is eligible for a trip log, not just work to home commute trips. Each person on a team is limited to 2 trip logs per day. There is a limit of ten (10) people per team. This means that there is a maximum of twenty (20) points available for a team of 10 people.
Participants must be employed with the people on their team. Companies can have multiple teams within the organization participating in this Challenge. Teams will not be eligible if someone on the team is on two or more teams.
The Bike Month Team Challenge is open to any individual eighteen (18) years of age or older who lives or commutes in the 15-county Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission interest area of Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Hocking, Knox, Fayette Licking, Logan, Madison, Marion, Morrow, Perry, Pickaway, Ross, or Union counties. Limit one registration per individual. Contest is not open to MORPC, COTA, Smart Columbus, CoGo, any employee of an agency that has helped plan the Bike Month Instagram Challenge, or any MORPC board members and their immediate family members.

After 7 business days have elapsed, the original winner will forfeit the right to the prize, and a new winner will be drawn. If there is a tie between multiple participants, a random drawing will be used to select a winner.
