Clif Bar 2 Mile Challenge

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Clif Bar has always been a company that cares about the environment. Since 40% of all urban travel in the United States occurs within 2 miles of people’s homes and 90% of that travel is usually done by car, Clif has created the 2 Mile Challenge as an opportunity to reduce carbon emissions and fight climate change. It’s a competition to get as many car trips as possible replaced by bike trips instead.

Clif Bar is determined to inspire 100,000 avoided car trips and will be awarding $100,000 in grants to three nonprofit organizations: Alliance for Biking and Walking, Safe Routes to School, and 350.org.

You can participate by going to Clif Bar 2 Mile Challenge. Register, choose your team, and start replacing your car trips with bike trips. You’ll earn points, have fun riding and competing, and do something good for the earth in the process.
