Are you a Bike to Work fan with no job to bike to? Feeling the crunch of the economy in spite of your commuter savings? This could be your opportunity to shine on the newly formed Bike to Work team called “Recently Unemployed”. Join last year’s mileage leader Rob Shellhamer and others as we pedal our way to our next career.
If you have been downsized, rightsized, outsourced or just plain laid-off, you know your new job is to find a new job and it is more work than any work you have done in the past. So why not combine your fitness/green/savings routine with your new job search?
Join the team and log your miles to outplacement centers, interviews, networking events as well as the evening rides scheduled for Bike to Work Week. With a little more time on our hands, we should be able to coast right past all those regular nine-to-fivers out there! Bike miles to volunteer for Bike to Work events will count as well!
To join simply go to www.MichianaBiketoWork.org and click on “Corporate Challenge”. From there click on “Click here to register your commuting team or register with a team”, then “Join a team” and find the hottest team in the area: “Recently Unemployed”. You will register with a login and password and be all set to ride. Now get out there and ride to your new career!
