Employees Roll Out for Bike to Work Day
GoPro employees across California saddled up to celebrate National Bike to Work month and the Bay Area’s Bike to Work Day on May 11.
Whether it was in collared shirts or branded kits, upwards of 50 employees from both the San Mateo and San Diego offices participated, including CEO and founder Nick Woodman, riding anywhere from three to 33 miles.
Besides collectively reducing our carbon footprints, the day served as an awesome reminder that trading out a car for a bike every now and then is way easier (and rewarding) than we make it out to be. Riders also agreed that seeing their everyday commutes from a whole new POV started the day in the right gear.
And in true GoPro-fashion employees started getting creative with mounting options. The three most popular proving to be the Handlebar/Seatpost/Pole Mount, Pro Seat Rail Mount, Karma Grip, and of course, the Seeker backpack, which has multiple mounting options, paired with the HERO5 Black—voice commands turned on. But the real Tour de GoPro leader was the Quik App, which helped participants share content and post videos immediately following the ride.
Besides earning bragging rights, participants pulled up to a healthy brekkie, a bag of new bike gear complete with GoPro Camelbak water bottles, and chilled Champagne for celebrating a ride well done.
