What is a Team Leader?

A Team Leader is someone in the workplace that motivates co-workers to participate in Bike to Work Week. As the Team Leader, you can add people to your team in the registration system, or people can register and join your team.

Team Leaders can hang Bike to Work Week posters in their workplace (e.g. in the lunch room, elevators, etc.) to help raise awareness about Bike to Work Week.

Team Leaders can monitor teammates' participation through their Bike to Work Week Dashboard and encourage teammates to log their kilometres, or alternatively Team Leaders can log teammates' kilometres for teammates.

Team Leaders can also organize friendly competitions within their team: who can cycle the most kilometres during BTWW, who can cycle the most trips during BTWW, who can cycle to work the most days during BTWW?

As a Team Leader, you help make a positive difference in people's lives. As you watch your teammates make healthier lifestyle choices and choose to cycle instead of drive, you will feel proud of your leadership.
