How Neighborhoods Are Stacking Up in the WBR Challenge Competition

Over  1,000 people have signed up for the July/August Walk Bike Ride Challenge  and switched 96,000 miles of car trips to walking, biking and riding.   As we say around here, “Way to Go, Seattle!”  For each trip they report, “challengers” earn a chance to win some great prizes.

We’re tracking the results by neighborhood to spur some friendly competition around town.   The chart below shows the ‘hoods which have switched the most car trips so far.  Are you spurred on yet?  Rankings could change tomorrow – so sign up and make the switch!

Keep up the good work, folks.  We’ll provide another update in August and at the end of the program.

A few notes:

  • Don’t  take the competition too seriously.  The only prize is bragging rights.  It’s just a friendly contest to help us encourage each other to walk, bike and ride.
  • Some ‘hoods are likely to have higher results simply because they have more residents.
  • If your neighborhood is not listed here, it may be further down the list, or has not yet engaged in the competition. Spread the word.
