Mark your calendars: SDOT’s 2013 Walk Bike Ride Challenge launches June 15 and runs through the summer until September 9. Sign up NOW and start inviting your friends, neighbors, family, co-workers to join in on the fun.
The Walk Bike Ride Challenge is an SDOT incentive program to inspire you to try new transportation options this summer, and hopefully change some of your habits in the long-term. If you walk, bike, ride transit, carpool, skip, skate (you get the idea!) to your destination instead of driving alone, you can win one of these great prizes:
- A brand new bike and helmet from Gregg’s Cycles
- Family pack tickets to the Woodland Park Zoo
- $200 REI Gift Card
- $100 Nordstrom Gift Card
- $100 Farmers Market gift certificate
- $150 Zipcar gift certificate
- Car2Go membership and four hours of driving
- And more to come!
You can sign up now and start logging trips anytime between June 15 and September 9, but remember: the more trips you report, the higher the chance you have of winning! If you refer-a-friend that participates in the Challenge, we’ll enter you into a weekly raffle for a $20 Orca Card. If that wasn’t enough, we’ll also be offering other fun incentives throughout the Challenge so everyone has a shot at winning.
Once you sign up for the WBR Challenge you become part of a community making Seattle a more active and better place to live. The Walk Bike Ride Challenge is partnering with Luum this year and using a brand new platform to track your progress, provide tips and encouragement, and engage with fellow Challengers. We’re really excited for the new features, and can’t wait to hear what you think. So, what are you waiting for? Get moving, get active, get prizes!
