Now you have control over who can apply to be a part of your team. All you have to do is create an access code for any team you are a captain of. This code can be any word that you choose. Creating an access code for your team prompts any rider applying to join your team to enter the code. So what? So now only the folks you want on your team can apply. If you are organizing a team for your workplace, you can simply send out an email to all of your co-workers with the access code and not have to worry about verifying every single applicant to the team. If you want just your friends to be on your team, no more requests from unwanted teammates. That’s huge!
To set up your access code if your team already exists, go to the Teams tab and click on My Teams. Find the team you’d like to add the code to, click on it, then once in the team page, click on the Edit tab. Find the Access Code blank, fill in whatever word you’d like, then click on Submit. It’s that easy.
To set up your access code for a new team, go to the Teams tab and click on Create Team. Fill out all the pertinent info then click on the “Show advanced options” link. Enter in the code of your choice and hit Submit. Bada bing, bada boom!

A nice note from one of our competition administrators. Keep up the creative challenges!
“Thanks for the team report export feature-that will help immensely with our (General Mills) summer bike challenge competition. Last year we accomplished our 50,000 mile goal (124 bikers biked 51,500 miles in 3 months). This year we are aiming for 60,000 miles and 150 bikers. Thank you, and thanks for hosting this great website!!!!”

Greetings, fellow cyclists! As promised in my last blog, there are some changes to GreenlightRide in the works. The latest and greatest is the ability for team captains to upload every type of ride and mile entered by every rider on your team.
What would you do with that information?
- You can use GreenlightRide as a wellness tracking program for your shop, your company, or your group of friends.
- You can reward your riders on an individual basis.
- You can study the data endlessly just because you love stats, but then again, it might be better to spend the time on your bike.
- Become the captain of your own personal team and keep track of your own successes.
Simply go to your team and look for the “Export Team Data” in the lower right column, pick a date range and click “Export Data.” Like magic, you’ll get an excel sheet full of info to do whatever you please with. Ta da!

Greetings fellow cyclists! It is I, your new GreenlightRide Administrator, Skuzzy Bones. Bike Everywhere has handed over the reins but will continue to be part of the power house group that makes up the GreenlightRide team. From here on out, I’ll be updating the blogs, handling communication, and doing my best to make this a website that not only fulfills your cycling needs but pushes you to ride more miles.
Over the next several months we’ll be shaking things up a bit with GreenlightRide.com. We’ve already made a few changes that might look small but are in fact HUGE! More to come on recent changes later.
Please stay tuned for more information and as always, if you have any feedback or questions don’t hesitate to contact the GreenlightRide support team at firstname.lastname@example.org
