Bike Month may be over, but let's not forget about the stars of this year's Bike to Work Day.

Mayor John Suthers will announce the winner of the Corporate Challenge, the best breakfast station, the 2018 Commuter of the Year, and the winners of head-to-head competitions on Monday at Trail's End Taproom.

The Corporate Challenge offered businesses the chance to prove their commitment to health and the environment, as measured by employee participation. Companies were separated into “classes” based on the size of their workforce and given a score.

This year, 45 companies and organizations ranging in size from 2 to 5,000 employees went head-to-head, according to a statement from the Bike to Work Day Steering Committee.

The suspense is mounting: Initial calculations of the corporate winners were incorrect, due to an error in the formula that counted participants who'd registered in two or more breakfast locations. The city will update its website with the correct winners in coming days, according to the announcement.

The Bike to Work Day Awards and Recognition Celebration will be held Monday, July 9, from 5:30-7 p.m. at Trail's End Taproom. Bike parking will be available, and organizers encourage guests to ride.

In other cycling news: The city just launched PikeRide, a bike share program that allows riders to check out a pair of wheels for free. Brave reporter Bridgett Harris tested them out for last week's cover story.
