CLIF Bar 2 Mile Challenge

In the U.S., 40% of all urban travel happens within 2 miles of where people live.

And yet 90% of all that travel is by car! Think about the amount of carbon emitted from people firing up the car just to run out for a loaf of bread or a cup of coffee.

At Clif Bar, we’re all about protecting the places where we love to play so we asked the question: what if once a week people replaced a trip under 2 miles with a bike instead? Once a week - pretty simple, right? Get out of your car, get some fresh air, use your natural energy and save some cash on gas. We call it the 2 Mile Challenge. BIKE once a week; FIGHT climate change.

Are you ready to roll?

LaVonne's note:
As triathletes we're ahead of the game! We have bikes and are used to riding them in traffic. No Excuses! Use Map My Ride or Google Maps to find the best and safest route! Also, many cities and counties have maps available of the best bike routes. Check out your local Department of Transportation website.
