How to Create Your Own Team Page


You can create your page anywhere you like. If your workplace already has a website, your Team Page can be a page on that site.  Or if you don't already have a way to create webpages, we suggest using Google Sites.

If you like the aesthetic theme of the page you're looking at right now, you can just add a page to our site. Choose 'list' format so that you can list all your team members (see the Hypothetical Diner for an example).

If you'd rather choose another theme to better represent your workplace's aesthetic, you'll need to create your own site, and then add a page to that site in 'list' format for your team members (see the Fictitious Factory for an example).

Please send a link to hybridgoldfish@gmail.com so your Team Page can be added to our Team Pages sidebar. You're also welcome to add it to the sidebar yourself. (If you're not able to edit or create new pages on our site, just email me to be added as an Owner.)


Size, Captain, Names, Miles, Newbies (SCoNe-MaN)

 * Size of your workplace: how many people work there? (If you're not sure who counts, just count everyone who might plausibly commute to work there on Friday, May 20th.)

 * Your Team Captain's name (and contact information, if needed).

 * Names of people on your team. We recommend listing the same number of people as above, even people who don't plan to bike to work May 20th. The Hypothetical Diner page explains how this can boost your participation rate (see bottom paragraph).

 * Miles, round-trip, for each person's daily commute.

 * Newbies: if someone on your team is new to bike commuting, please put a star (*) next to their name. (So they're eligible for a special prize.)

If in doubt, here is how to define a novice bike commuter:
You are a novice bike commuter if your first bike trip from your current home to your current workplace is either ON BIKE TO WORK DAY this year, or IN PREPARATION FOR BIKE TO WORK DAY this year. (Special considerations apply in the case of employees with roving worksites, e.g. construction crews or real estate agents. For example, Tim Godshall routinely bikes to work, and so would not be considered a novice bike commuter even if he happened to start working at a new worksite on Bike to Work Day.)
