    Riding into the Sunset

    We just wrapped up Bike-to-Work Week here in Ventura with a groovy happy hour and raffle. A quick tally shows that Ventura employees rode 1,979 miles this week and Reno rode a whopping 2,789 miles! (Stay tuned for the Retail store totals.) According to Bike Metro and the EPA, by riding our bikes instead of driving this week Patagonia employees kept the following amounts of pollutants out of the environment:

    _mg_4039 Total Hydrocarbons = 29.406 Lbs
    Total Carbon Monoxide = 219.496 Lbs
    Total Carbon Dioxide = 4367.488 Lbs
    Total Nitrous Oxide= 14.598 Lbs
    Total Gas= 216.7 Gal

    Huge thanks to all the Patagonia employees who participated, and to all of the wonderful folks around the country who biked to work. Hopefully all the fun posts this week inspired some of you to participate. We would also like to thank the sponsors that donated prizes for the Ventura raffle. Please support these companies if you're ever in the area: New Belgium Brewing Company, Open Air Bikes, Island Packers, Aveda, Anacapa Brewing Company, Trek, Surfclass.com, Dan Holmes Photo, Resource Revival, Fiore Restaurant, Lulu Bandha's Yoga Studio, Jamba Juice, Patagonia, Ben & Jerry's, Cafe Bariloche, Juice on Chestnut and Jersey Mike's Subs.
