Team Galois had a 29.1% commute rate this year. Nearly three out of every ten commutes by Galois employees in September were taken by bicycle. That’s a company record:
- 2007: 17.1%
- 2008: 22.9%
- 2009: 15.2%
- 2010: 26.4%
- 2011: 29.1%
We at Galois take pride in our workplace, which includes an office complete with bike racks, shower room, and a walk-in closet for hanging bike clothes (which sometime get a bit soggy in the Pacific Northwest). We were aided by a beautiful, dry September that let riders in the Portland area and along the Willamette Valley log over 1.3 million miles during this year’s Challenge.
Update (Oct 9): According to the BTA’s final results, Galois placed 25th out of 285 teams in the Business and Non-Profits With 25-99 Employees category.
