Aren’t you excited that it’s finally warm enough out to bike outside? I have to say it takes a little bit to get used to… I’ll give you an example, last night I needed to run to the store to pick up a bike pump, but I was without a car. I was pretty mad that I couldn’t take care of the errand, until I realized that I could just jog to the store… it’s only a mile away.
It seems like Clif Bar is on the same page…
Did you know that 40% of all urban travel in the US happens within 2 miles of where people live? 90% of that travel is by car! Realizing the great opportunity to help fight climate change, CLIF BAR created a competition to see how many car trips could be replaced with a bike instead. It’s called the 2 Mile Challenge.
To highlight our commitment to bike advocacy and the fight against climate change in 2011, CLIF BAR is out to inspire our friends to avoid 100,000 car trips – and we will award $100,000 in grants along the way! All you have to do to participate is register, pick your team and start pedaling your bike to earn points and move the goodness forward.
