The city is encouraging drivers to get out of their cars and start walking, biking or riding transit. This cycle of the Walk Bike Ride (WBR) Challenge runs the months of July and August. “Summer is a great time to try walking, biking or riding transit to work, to get to know your neighborhood and to start lifetime habits that keep you healthy,” said Councilmember Tom Rasmussen. The goal of the program is to help people get in shape, save money and reduce greenhouse gases.
Participants of the WBR challenge, will get weekly emails with tips on walking, biking and riding. Participants can also track individual progress and the program’s collective impact online.
The more trips one reports, the higher the chance they have of winning these prizes:
