We had a tough time choosing the winner this week in our Group Health Commute Challenge Video, Photo and Story contest . We had so many stunning (and sometimes amusing) photo contributions and delightful stories, too. The job of the judges, however, is to choose, and having done so, we announce one first-place winner and two honorable mentions on the theme At work . **First, though, next week’s theme is Have fun and ride in style . Deadline is noon, Wednesday, June 1. And now, the winners. First place goes to Charlie Redell of Office Nomads! [caption id="attachment_6216" align="aligncenter" width="522" caption="Photo by Daya"] [/caption] Our team of elite judges liked this photo so much because not only does it fit the week's theme so well, but it also hits on something close to Cascade's heart: community. The photo shows two Group Health Commute Challenge teams from Office Nomads on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Are you familiar with Office Nomads ? The words on the sandwich board in the photo say it all: Shared office space for the independent worker. Office Nomads provides workplace community for people who might otherwise work in isolation at home or in the anonymity of a coffee shop. And these nomads are creating even more community through bicycling, which is what Cascade's mission is all about. Love it! Our two honorable mentions are stories. One story profiles a workplace in Redmond that offers secure bike parking but requires creative sink showering. The other story follows one individual's commute and includes a really cute picture of a dog.
