CLIF Bar’s 2-mile challenge is about as simple a concept as it comes: if the errand is within 2 miles, replace a car with a bike. Sure, it’s tough to hear when it’s going to be torrid outside, but WABA is hoping that you’ll take a ride (which makes its own breeze!) through the city to help them raise money. The bike advocacy non-profit gets a buck per ride during the month of July, to a maximum of $10,000, which they can use to help get bike routes marked and lanes painted throughout the metropolitan area.
As someone who’s now lost close to 60lbs by taking a bike a few times a week, the little miles add up to a whole lot of progress. Get out there and bike, DC!
