Challenge yourself to reduce the miles you travel solo in a gas-powered vehicle and you could win some valuable prizes from our local merchants. Last year, dozens of Los Altos businesses donated gift certificates for our winners. The Challenge starts on Earth Day, April 22, and runs for just two weeks. Why not try out a different way of getting around for that short period of time? Bike, walk, carpool, skateboard, jump on a pogo stick, or take public transportation. You can even form a group for your school, club or neighborhood and compete against other groups. It’s easy. Sign up now. Set up your baseline so you can track your improvements. Once the contest starts, you’ll log your miles traveled and modes of transportation.
Last year Los Altos/Hills come in 5th out of the 9 competing communities – not bad for our first year. But we can do better!
If you plan to ride your bike during the Drive Less Challenge, you might want to tune up your safety and bike riding skills by coming to one of the Family Bike Days on March 30 or 31 or the Bike Rodeo on April 7.
