WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO

Check out all of the Broward MPO's coverage over the past few weeks.
LOVE TO RIDE CHALLENGE

The Broward MPO secured first place in FDOT's Love to Ride Bike Challenge! Throughout bike month, 38% of Broward MPO staff rode 1,528 miles! After calculating the mileage, encourager points, and day points, the MPO accumulated 4,158 points.

The Love to Ride Bike Challenge is an annual fun, free competition between workplaces to see who can earn the most points for riding and encouraging others during March. It's not all about who can ride the most miles but about encouraging as many people as possible to enjoy riding their bikes for health, happiness, and fun.
