The day we hold the Amazing Commute Race has luckily been bright and beautiful for five years running. Every year, our team meets up in one central location and takes off on different modes to see who can arrive at our office in Rosslyn the quickest. We’ve previously tried different ridehailing services vs public transit, a variety of active modes, and unique commutes like slugging.
