More Chances to Win

if you Walk Bike or Ride.  You can win prizes as well as give the planet a gift by participating in the Walk Bike Ride Challenge.  The success of July Walk Bike Challenge inspired  an ongoing program. We are currently in the August/September round for the Walk Bike Ride Challenge. At the end of September we will select prizewinners and then start a new two month round of the program for October and November. You participate for six to eight weeks. Depending on when you register in the cycle, you might participate in two rounds.

Register, cut two car trips per week, and report those saved car trips each week. The more weeks you report, the more chances you have to win great prizes!  Prizes include:

  • $100 Zipcar gift certificate (donated by Zipcar)
  • $100 REI gift certificate
  • We’ll help you along the way with weekly emails with tips on walking, biking and riding. You can login to see how many car trips you have reduced, and even see the collective impact of all the program participants.

     The July Walk Bike Ride Challenge was a hit.  Nearly 1,000 people registered to cut two car trips per week in July and walk, bike and ride more.  Mayor McGinn handed out prizes to winners of the program’s prize drawing during the Greenwood Summer Streets event on August 13.
