To participate, individuals can sign up for free on the NuRide website (http://www.nuride.com) and earn points for every greener trip such biking, walking, telecommuting, carpooling, vanpooling or taking public transportation. Points can then be redeemed for a variety rewards such as restaurant coupons, retailer discounts and tickets to shows and attractions.

“Through our partnership with NuRide we are able to reach thousands of individuals who already choose a greener trip,” said Steve Mongeau, CEO of Pietzo, “and raise awareness of our e-bikes for working professionals who are looking for a ‘no sweat’ commuting option.”
