F5 Bike to Work Day 'Riders' Choice award': International District commute station

The commute station in front of Union Station (401 S. Jackson St, Seattle, WA 98104) won the first annual Riders' Choice award. To win, their station generated the most social media photos, likes and favorites. Congrats and thank you to station hosts Sound Transit and King County Metro Transit!

F5 Bike to Work Day 'Spirit award':  UW Community Environment and Planning commute station

The commute station at 15th Ave and 40th St on the University of Washington Seattle campus was hosted by the undergraduate students in the Community, Environment and Planning Department. This group of energetic students not only had hot or iced coffee, juice and brownie bites from Chaco Canyon, and a photobooth; they also had a three piece brass band playing Christmas carols and songs by request! Thanks for all your energy and effort spreading good cheer on F5 Bike to Work Day!
