Winner and next theme for video/photo/story contest

The Group Health Commute Challenge Video, Photo and Story contest is rolling along wonderfully. We're happy to announce our first winner, Max Thornton, who submitted this picture, "Carp Diem," on the theme Getting Started. Thank you, Max. You're now in the running for one of the grand prizes given out at the Commute Challenge After Party on June 7.

We have one honorable mention, as well, the following video from Tim Willis. We wish they'd been wearing helmets in the video, but it sure captures the freedom of being on a bike on a beautiful spring day like today at the start of Bike Month.

Thanks also to Abby Bass for forwarding her blog post on music to listen to before riding. (Note: that's BEFORE riding. Leave those ear buds at home and stay safe out there!)

Without further ado, I'm happy announce the theme for the coming week:

Prepare to launch: skills and safety

Videos, photos and artwork due by noon, Wednesday, May 11. Have fun!
