Ballard in third place in Walk Bike Ride Challenge

Posted by Meghan Walker on July 27th, 2012

Ballard is pretty close to defending our title in the city’s Walk Bike Ride Challenge. Earlier this summer, we told you about the challenge, in which the city is encouraging people to walk, bike or ride the bus more often. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) asks participants to switch at least two car trips to more environmentally friendly modes of transit, and the contest last through July and August. And, so far, Ballard is in third place in the challenge.

Here are some stats on Ballard so far in the competition (from SDOT):

  • #3 in trips switched to walking, biking, or riding
  • #1 in number of participants signed up
  • #1 in miles of driving saved so far
  • 2,285 total miles saved so far

There’s also an individual competition in which the winner takes home the following loot:

  • Zipcar 1-year membership & 5+ hours of driving credit
  • $100 REI gift card

There are still five weeks left in the competition. To learn more, click here.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
