And the final results for TBC 2017 are in

BTWD was a great success this year, with many miles ridden by almost 100,000 riders across the Bay Area. But before, during and after BTWD, a group of 2,536 cyclists riding on 196 teams for 362 companies committed bike commuters participated in Team Bike Challenge — competing to win in the overall individual, team and company categories.
