2 Mile Challenge

Did you know that in the United States 40% of all urban travel happens within 2 miles of where people live? And, that 90% of that travel is by car! How about that 100 bicycles can be produced for the same energy and resources required to build 1 medium-sized car?

Want to do something about it? Join CLIF’s 2 Mile challenge. Just by biking instead of driving sometimes you can help cut down on car commutes, have fun, and help the team of your choice earn $$ for bicycle advocacy! For more information, check out the website, here. Contributing to this great cause is as simple (and fun) as, well…riding a bike!

P.S. – I just joined the Gold team last night! 🙂

    This is a great idea. Figure if I am going to ride my bike as much as possible to work this coming semester I should jump on this and join a team. Looking forward to getting on my bike more this semester….still need to get some cold gear for it but it could be a good fall in this aspect. (not competing with you!! I like the gold team too).

    This is a great idea! This is horrible to admit, but my gym is super close and I have been driving instead of biking like I used to. I need to get back to that. The main reason is usually because I do errands usually after my gym time but that’s an easy switch.
