Last year, over 600 workplaces participated in Transportation Alternatives' first annual Bike to Work Challenge. This year, hundreds of New York City employers of all sizes, from Spotify to Saint George's Episcopal School, have already signed on — and the competition is heating up.

As part of the Profiles in Pedaling series, Transportation Alternatives spoke with Daniel Garwood, an urban designer at Sam Schwartz Engineering — New York City's leading progressive transportation planning and engineering firm — and captain of his workplace's Bike to Work Challenge team, to learn why he rides, how he motivates his team and his strategy to "mercilessly crush the competition."
