WV Office Staff Racks Up Miles Cycling to Work

By wpdev July 1, 2009

Wilderness Ventures’ small office staff team is promoting “green” commuting and spending more time outside this summer by participating in Jackson Hole’s very own Bike Commuter Challenge.

Many of the small organizations and businesses in Jackson Hole are participating in the summer-long event — tracking their work-related cycling miles, consequenting caloric burn and reduced carbon emissions. For the month of January, the small WV office has logged an accumulated 529 miles, having prevented a total 519 pounds of CO2 from escaping into the atmosphere. While the office staff is proud of their ongoing accomplishment, the beauty of the Tetons makes motivating for the morning bike ride pretty easy. “We have one of the most awe-inspiring commutes in America,” says WV office staff member Shauna Nacewicz, “Every morning I feel lucky to be on my bicycle.”

In many ways, the bike commuter challenge falls well in-line with WV’s important programming goals of Fostering Appreciation for the Natural World and Developing Positive Associations for Wild Lands.
