Commute to Fight Climate Change

We’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with CLIF BAR to help fight climate change! You can join the fight and help them give away $100,000 to nonprofits. 40% of US urban travel is 2 miles or less and nearly all of that travel is by car. Let’s see how many car trips can be replaced by bike.

Starting today, you’ll be able to log your commutes on dailymile. You’ll find this option in the workout types drop-down on the workout form. After submitting your commute, you’ll be given the chance to join the challenge and put those commute miles towards a good cause. Pick a team to earn donations for that charity: Gold Team supports Alliance for Biking and Walking, Red Team supports Trips for Kids, and the Blue Team supports ACE, the Alliance for Climate Education. An extra $25,000 will be awarded to the winning team’s charity.

You can learn more about CLIF BAR’s 2 Mile Challenge at the 2 Mile Challenge website or follow @2milechallenge on Twitter.

Ride on!
