Take the Drive Less Challenge! Get your bike a free tune-up.

Take the 2011 Drive Less Challenge! April 22 – May 5th, 2011

The Drive Less Challenge is a fun way to try alternatives to driving your car to work, school, shopping and other local places. Walking, biking and taking transit instead of driving are great ways to live healthy and reduce car traffic, the largest source of CO2 emissions in the Bay Area!

Sign up at drivelesschallenge.com to use a game-like trip log, share your stories, and to join the Transition Palo Alto group. You can join and also form your own additional groups – friends, co-workers, neighbors, and others – to compete for fun and for prize gift certificates from local shops.

The Drive Less Challenge is an innovative, grassroots movement that encourages people to use alternatives to solo driving as a way to live healthier, do more local shopping, and reduce car traffic and CO2 emissions. To volunteer or sponsor please contact drivelesschallenge at gmail dot com

See you out there walking, biking, on the bus or train!

If you do any biking (or want to), get your bike a free tune-up at Mike’s Bikes! More info …
