|Ready to start a drive less challenge in your city?|
There's a project called Drive Less Challenge, which started in Menlo Park, Calif. three years ago to get people biking, walking, riding transit and carpooling. It focuses on events like bike safety checks, giveaways and rallies at schools. It also has a website where people sign up, log their trips and enter to win prizes.
It's grown each year. Earlier this year, it celebrated 10 cities on the peninsula south of San Francisco. Corporate sponsors help with an end-of-challenge party and buy donating prizes. Check out the Drive Less Challenge website. Maybe you can help start one in your town?
