After an exciting 6 months of cycling competition, the first annual Cogentes Bicycle Challenge ended successfully with 100% employee participation in the program.  Nearly 1,500 miles were logged by Cogentes members, not including those ridden by spouses and kids coming along for fun.  “We were motivated by the National Bike Challenge to create our own ‘Cogentes Bike Challenge’,” says President and CEO Tom Glover.  “We created an incentive program to reward riding, provided bikes and gear where needed, and led group rides, teaching road rules and safety instruction.  It worked!  Everyone participated in the program, with 4 employees earning a total of 6 days paid vacation!  We also gave away 2 netbook computers to the 2 employees logging in the most miles in 2014.”
