Starting Monday, February 10th the second annual Vermont Winter Bike/Walk Challenge will run from February 10th to the 21st! This is an awesome opportunity for Vermonters to get outside during the winter and try out cold-weather biking and/or walking, and win prizes in the process! Organized by Local Motion and Go! Vermont, the Challenge encourages Vermonters to use alternative and active forms of transportation, which also happen to be healthy and effective ways to reduce Vermont’s carbon footprint. To take part, participants simply record at least two walk or bike trips during the challenge period in the Go! Vermont app. Multi-modal commutes that combine walking, biking, or running with transit also count towards the Challenge. Participants who record at least two trips (easy right?) will be entered for random drawings of prizes, including $25 gift cards to Darn Tough Socks, Outdoor Gear Exchange, and Gardener’s supply, and season passes to Local Motion’s Island Line Bike Ferry.
