Finishing the Month at The Top of The Divvy LEADERBOARD?

Thanks for your help.

 

Would anyone know about any rewards for finishing the month at the top of the Divvy LEADERBOARD?

 

Is there a super cool prize awaiting someone for all their efforts?


Regards,

JM

    Nope!

    Nothing.

    Zilch!

    Not even an automated congratulatory note. 

     

    That's odd, considering the huge effort put behind the Bike Angels program and the simple fact that a LEADERBOARD does exist.

     

    Right?

     

    Why attach a "No. 1" to a person's point total, and not acknowledge they are in fact, No. 1, and have "won"?

     

    If it's all about a friendly keeping track of the points, then why list the number?  Just post the points, because using that logic, nobody is winning,  we're all just keeping track.

     

    But, when you put a "No. 1" and list a "Top 20", that's a competition. 

     

    And, a competition without a finish line with a reward is no fun at all, and that's where Divvy has failed.

     

    Seems like Divvy dropped the ball on this, or if purposeful, their logic, refraining from acknowledging and rewarding the monthly Bike Angels highest points scorer is flawed. 

     

    Heck. They reward everything else  in the Bike Angels program,  why not the "winner"

      I remember back in the days you would get an additional $20 to $100 gift card for being the top 3 or something like that.

        T1m3Wizard You're correct that Citi Bike Bike Angels have incentives to reach the top of the leaderboard. 

         

        jm is a Bike Angel with Divvy in Chicago, which doesn't currently offer incentives to the Angels that top the leaderboard each month.

      jm I want to apologize that we didn't reply to your feedback here when you posted it. We always appreciate riders and Angels sharing their experiences with us, and I hear you that more incentives to top the Divvy leaderboard are welcomed. The leaderboards are intended to provide some visibility into what the top earners are doing, and Divvy Bike Angels rewards are for lifetime points totals. Nevertheless, your perspective is valued. I hope you'll return to the community as the Bike Angels program grows. 😊
