For the 10th consecutive year, NREL has held on to first place in the Bike to Work Day Jefferson County Class D Business Challenge. Thanks to the participation of 261 NREL employees (up from 238 last year). Bike to Work Day represents a grassroots effort by cities, counties, transportation planners, community organizations, and others across the state to educate commuters about the benefits of using two wheels to get to work.
