I’ve decided to challenge myself and my friends to drive less one day a week.
I posted the challenge on Twitter:
“Can you park your car and ride your bike, carpool, take transit, or walk one day a week? I did!”
Today, I took my son Alex to day care using my bike with the bike trailer attached, then ran two errands before heading home. Total mileage: 8. Calories used: Let’s guesstimate 300. (Maybe enough to make up for the peach cobbler I ate last night?) Gasoline used: none. Knowing I created zero emissions and got my exercise for the day: Priceless!
I will repeat this challenge at least once a week. Care to join me?
