Anyone who is 18 years of age or older and lives within the 8-county area surrounding San Antonio (Atascosa, Bandera, Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe, Kendall, Medina, and Wilson) may participate. Businesses, agencies, hospitals, universities and other organizations in the region may also participate collectively, and if you would like your organization to officially be a part of this challenge, please contact Lily Lowder.
Eligible to include in this challenge are trips that participants record to and/or from a specific destination for transportation purposes (that is, not solely for the sake of exercise or enjoyment). In addition to travel that occurs by alternative means such as carpooling, vanpooling, riding the bus, riding a bicycle, or walking, trips that are saved by telecommuting (working from home instead of going to the office) and by working only four days a week or nine days every two weeks due to a compressed work schedule also count toward the Challenge. Trips must be recorded on Nuride.com by midnight on June 1 (that is, no later than 11:59:59 pm on May 31) to count toward this challenge.
Go to Nuride.com, click on the blue “Sign up” button, and simply follow the prompts from there. If you need help, a Website walkthrough can be found here. You may also contact NuRide or access frequently asked questions through links at the bottom of NuRide's Web pages. Once you've registered, take a moment to complete your profile (under the Account tab). Be sure to identify your organization (place of employment or study), so your organization can also get credit for your trips during the Walk & Roll Challenge.
As an individual, there is nothing specific you need to do to join the challenge as long as you are registered on NuRide.com and are recording your trips! Just make sure you have identified your organization (employer or school) in your profile under the Account tab, so your organization gets credit for your trips, as well.
As an individual, you’re all set! However, please make your NuRide profile (found under the Account tab) is complete and your organization (employer or school) is identified there. If not, your organization cannot get credit for your trip in the “corporate” part of the challenge.
All participants who record trips taken by biking, walking, busing, or carpooling, and trips saved through telecommuting or working a compressed workweek schedule can earn points towards NuRide rewards. During the Challenge, random winners will be selected weekly from among those participants who have recorded at least three trips in the previous week. In addition, there will be one grand prize drawing winner selected from among those participants who have recorded at least one trip during the Challenge. Businesses that have informed AACOG that they are officially competing can win by having the most trips taken per employee in the small and large organization categories. For example, say Business A has 1,000 employees. Of them, 187 are involved in the challenge and they collectively record a total of 2,000 trips. Business A’s 2,000 trips would be divided by 1,000 employees, and its average would be 2 trips per employee. Business B has 650 employees. Of them, 178 are involved in the challenge and collectively record 1,995 trips. Business B’s 1,995 trips would be divided by 650 employees, and its average would be 3 trips per employee. Even though Business A recorded more trips, Business B would be the winner, because proportionately more people were involved from Business B and they collectively recorded more trips.
