Employees of Hy-Tech Drilling continued Bike To Work Week after the event officially ended

Hy-Tech Drilling rides out Bike to Work Week

Hy-Tech Drilling put out a challenge to its employees during bike to work week

Hy-Tech Drilling put out a challenge to its employees during bike to work week but when their goal wasn’t met, they extended it by another week.

Sabrina Lickers said the local drilling company would donate 10 cents for every kilometre that the staff biked during those two weeks, up to $500 to Special Olympics.

“Rather than including only kilometres biked to work, because that is unrealistic for some staff, we included any kilometres that employees biked during the week,” she said.

They were hoping to hit 5,000 km but only rode in 3,189 km.

However, Lickers said she is still happy with that number and Hy-tech has donated $319.

“We wanted it to be fun and give everyone a little more motivation for people to bike. We made it into a bit of competition between our field, shop and administration employees.”

Lickers said Hy-tech will continue to participate in bike to work week in the future.
