Know someone in your community who is committed to making every day “Bike to Work Day”? Does he/she epitomize the health, environmental, social and economic benefits of bicycling? Are you inspired by his/her committment to pedaling?

Share his/her story with us by nominating your rider for Bike Commuter of the Year!

The Bike Commuter of the Year Awards (BCOY) recognize Bay Area residents who are committed to using their bicycles to get to work every day – rain or shine, winter or summer. Every year, one winner is chosen from each of the nine Bay Area counties. Nominations are reviewed and each winner is selected by the county's local bicycle coalition and/or congestion management agency.

This year, for their dedication to pedaling to work and to biking in general, the 2015 Bike Commuter of the Year Award recipients will receive dinner for four from Chipotle, a rechargeable BikeSmart Wally USB front headlight courtesy of Mike's Bikes and boxed set of Bay Trail maps.
