Clif Bar, the maker of delicious energy bars and more, is currently promoting the 2 Mile Challenge. The challenge? To make any trip of 2 miles or less by bicycle. Put those car keys away and grab the bike lock!
In order to participate, you select a team, for which you are riding to earn points, that will eventually be given a grant from Clif Bar to promote cycling. The teams include the Alliance for Biking and Walking, Trips for Kids, and the Alliance for Climate Education.
If you already replace most of your 2 miles or less trips with a bicycle rather than a car, you are a great candidate for the challenge. And if you are looking for a good way to start bike commuting, then here is the perfect opportunity to have some fun while you are doing it! There is nothing like a little competition to get people out of their cars and onto their bikes. Plus, it doesn’t matter how fast you go, as long as you go on the bike!
