Bike-to-work campaigns aim to promote active commuting to increase physical activity. Little is known about the characteristics of the population which is reached by such initiatives. In the framework of a bike-to-work campaign involving a large Swiss company, structured telephone interviews were conducted with a random sample of 178 campaign participants and 159 non-participants. Participants and non-participants did not significantly differ regarding gender, education or physical activity level. Yet, participants were younger, lived closer to work and habitually commuted by bike. Still, 37.6% of the participants had not used the bike for commuting to work prior to the campaign.
