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.

    Paintings. Overall, this new Oak Park children’s store is well worth a visit either
    to shop for unique and stylish children’s clothing and toys or as a way of clearing out and
    giving a second life to old but good-quality kids’ clothing and toys.

    Poinsettias have been at the center of a raging debate as to whether
    they are, or are not, poisonous to bunnies. Also while
    a tuxedo might be the perfect outfit if you are performing magic for a holiday party or corporate
    event, the same clothing may seem out of place if you are
    performing magic at the birthday party for
    a 5 year old. A last final reason for people who are trait lonely and yet looking for that special someone they cannot find, maybe due to
    the fact that they maybe unwilling to let down their defenses.

    If you give up your email address to register at one of these sites don’t
    be surprised if the amount of spam you receive increases dramatically.

    When I was generating cash with surveys a couple of years back I used to
    choose surveys that were about 15 to 30 minutes because I used
    to get tired of answering questions about a certain product or service.
