The 2019 Business Challenge is presented by the Denver Business Journal. DBJ logo

With thousands of companies in the nine-county Denver region, we challenge you to put your company to the test. Can you win? Do you have the two-wheeled gusto?

Businesses are split into four classes: Class A (1-29 employees), B (30-99 employees), C (100-299 employees) and D (300+ employees). 

Rankings are calculated using an effort index rather than a simple number of participants per company. Learn more about the Effort Index and Class Type: Effort Index.

Not located in the nine-county region? Seek out Bike to Work Day activities in your area: contact CDOT for more information.
