Published May 15, 2015

EMMAUS, Pa. (BRAIN) — More than 100 Rodale Inc employees biked to work on Monday, the first day of Bike to Work week. The effort was part of the Rodale 100 Rider Challenge, a program developed to incentivize employees to opt for a healthier, more active mode of transportation and decrease their carbon footprint in exchange for an extended summer hours program. By exceeding the 100-rider goal, Rodale Inc.'s company-wide Summer Hours started Friday, one week ahead of schedule.

During Summer Hours, Rodale employees can leave work early on Fridays with prior approval.

"It's exciting to see the enthusiasm that our employees had in planning for and participating in our Bike to Work Day and it speaks to the power and value of motivating and engaging employees with a fun and energetic workplace," said Maria Rodale.

Rodale's titles include Men's Health, Prevention, Women's Health, Runner's World, Bicycling, Running Times and Rodale's Organic Life.
