Bike-to-Work Week

August 05, 2010

In June, the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin held "Bike-to-Work Week" in Madison and Milwaukee. More than 2,275 people registered as participants in the annual event that encourages businesses and their employees to ride their bikes to work at least one day during the week rather than using a car for transportation.

Registered participants in Bike-to-Work Week:

  • Burned 3,606,550 calories;
  • Saved $56,703 in vehicle costs;
  • Prevented 41 tons of carbon dioxide emissions;
  • Prevented 5,129 pounds of carbon monoxide emissions; and
  • Saved 4,192 gallons of gasoline.

Godfrey & Kahn's Madison office was actively involved in Bike-to-Work Week. Eleven of the attorneys, summer associates, and staff commuted to the office by bike at least one day during the week. Those 11 people biked to work an average of 2.5 days during the week, and rode an average of 27.5 miles to and from the office during the week. Godfrey & Kahn's Madison office had participation that was the largest by a law firm in the state.

Godfrey & Kahn also offered financial support for Bike to Work Week, sponsoring a Commuter Bike Workshop at which Madison office shareholder Doug Poland and President of Downtown Madison, Inc. Susan Schmitz provided tips for bike commuting.
