Seattle Department of Transportation has been running the Walk Bike Ride Challenge for about a year. This program encourages folks to switch to walking, cycling and transit. Participants become part of a community making a difference on many fronts, including personal health and improved air quality in Seattle.
When you enroll, you’ll receive weekly reminders and tips and you can track both your individual impacts and the group’s collective impacts online. Anyone with the ability to convert a couple of car trips per week to a trip by foot, pedal, or transit can participate.
The program runs every two months, but the July/August round is the biggest of the year. It helps that the weather is better, but the summer program also has the best prizes, too:
- An electric bike (donated by e-Moto Electric Vehicles, $1,000 value)
- Apple iPad ($499 value)
- One night stay at the Pan Pacific Hotel (donated, $375 value).
- $100 REI gift card
- $100 Zipcar gift card (donated by Zipcar)
- $50 Nordstrom gift card (donated by Commute Seattle)
