Fremont 5th In Walk Bike Ride Challenge

By Sean Keeley · August 1st, 2011 · No Comments

With five weeks left to go in this summer’s Walk Bike Ride Challenge, Fremonsters are ditching their car keys for other forms of transportation and doing more than most Seattle neighborhoods.

The Walk Bike Ride Challenge is a two-month cycle that encourages drivers to walk, ride their bikes or take the bus. So far Fremont is number five for the number of participants and sixth in miles driven.

You can still register for the program. Convert at least two car trips per week and you could win a prize for each trip cut. The Seattle Department of Transportation will send weekly emails with tips.

The more trips one reports, the higher the chance they have of winning these prizes:

  • Electric bike from e-Moto
  • Apple iPad
  • Pan Pacific Hotel stay
  • Zipcar $250 gift card
  • REI $100 gift card
  • Nordstrom’s $100 gift card (supplied by Commute Seattle)
  • $100 gift card good at seven farmers’ markets
